Breathing Disorders

What is a breathing disorder? Asthma, COPD, pneumonia, and emphysema are all breathing disorders. Breathing disorders, also known as respiratory illnesses, reduce lung capacity and affect overall lung function. They can cause symptoms like wheezing, shortness of breath, painful coughing, and chest tightness. When your lung capacity is affected, you may find it challenging to play sports, go for a run, or do any aerobic activity in general. Some conditions, like asthma, can be managed with bronchodilators or corticosteroid inhalers. Other breathing disorders may be more serious and require medication just to prevent symptoms from worsening. What is a breathing disorder?
