Breathing is such a natural part of day-to-day life that it’s performed without thinking. When you have difficulty breathing, you suddenly become very aware of this daily task that should be simple. Breathing issues can be caused by many things, but primarily originate in the heart or lungs. If you are having trouble breathing, it is important to consult with a respiratory care professional as soon as possible. This is a clear indicator that something is wrong, and leaving it untreated could lead to more serious complications.
