You are out of breath from going up stairs! Happens to me every time. I am out of shape but it is normal to breathe harder when going from resting to more exerting activities. Don't worry, we all get out of breath after stairs. :)
Your outta shape, thats all. Most people have the same issues as you do. I will climb up stairs for 1 minute and I have to breathe hard, but it takes me like 5 min on eliptical machine to actually start breathing hard. Its strange, but true. As long as your chest dont hurt, feel flutters, or other cardiac junk like that...your fine!
My pulmonoligist tested me with this very issue by having me walk very fast up 3 flights of stairs while hje followed me with a pulse oxymeter attached to my finger. My heart was racing and I was out of breath. But--my oxygen level was still 100% and he had me sit down, take in 3 deep breaths slowly, and let them out slowly and my heart rate went back to normal very quickly. Try that the next to feel out of breath.
