Breathing Problems

If you feel discomfort while breathing and cannot draw a complete breath, you have breathing problems. As you are unable to breathe properly, the carbon dioxide in the body cannot be exchanged with oxygen in the air you breathe efficiently, resulting in a lack of oxygen. The conditions that can cause breathing problems are asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, COPD, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, etc.
