Shortness of Breath

    Overview

    Shortness of breath is generally a symptom of some underlying condition, rather than a condition itself. Possible causes include asthma, pneumonia or other respiratory infections, low blood pressure, or more severe conditions such as cardiac arrhythmia, lung disease or tuberculosis. Make an appointment with SIU HealthCare for a diagnosis.
