Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
Did this come on suddenly?
any other medical problems?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
The thing I would be concerned about if this happened suddenly would be a blood clot in the lungs or pneumonia.
Also a heart issue is possible.
If this has been going on for a long time, then it is more likely to be something like COPD (emphysema).
If this is sudden onset then you need to go to ER right away.
