Shortness of breath when not active

so i find myself short of breath/ feeling the need to get a real good deep breath even when I’m just laying down or sitting down on the couch. Anyone else experience this? Is it normal?

Re: Shortness of breath when not active

  • Your increased blood volume, increased progesterone, and the decreased space in your body cavity can all cause shortness of breath. So, yes it can be normal. But, as always, consult your doctor if its concerning you.
