Hi I am a 22 year old woman. I don't understand why but I experience breathing problem and shortness of breath during this time of the year (March -May) and this has been happening since the last four or five years. I have not been diagnosed with asthma (yet) and I don't think anything particular in my diet causes it. Nor I have flu/cold. What could be the reason?
The most likely cause of your seasonally related breathing problems suggests the diagnosis of allergic asthma, precipitated by an increase in inhalation of spring-time allergens. You should have your doctor check-out your breathing. While many persons have year-around asthma and need to be on daily medication, those with seasonal asthma may only require medication on a seasonal basis.
