WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Shortness of breath means that you are struggling to breathe in air, and that you have to take more breaths.
For example: When walking to the shop you feel you have to stop to breathe and rest.
Heart and lung problems are usually the cause of this shortness of breath.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Seek help from a nurse, health care worker or doctor as soon as possible if you are short of breath.
