While breathing difficulty may not always be a sign of a serious medical condition, you should talk to your doctor about any breathing issues right away. To diagnose the underlying cause of your breathing difficulty, your doctor will perform a physical examination, review your symptoms, and ask you about your medical history. You should also notify your doctor if you begin having difficulty breathing after taking a prescription or over-the-counter medication. Certain drugs used to treat pain, muscle stiffness, or anxiety can cause breathing issues. ( ALSA )
