I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. Probably the infection is not yet under control. If you have bronchitis then often there is a feeling of inadequate breath due to spasm of airways. Please consult your doctor. Maybe taking a bronchodilator may help. Do deep breathing exercise and blow into a balloon. This will help dislodge any mucus and also help you breathe easier. Take care!

Maybe it can COPD or emphysema. Your lungs have no oxygen and your body have more co2. If you smoke, then first of all stop smoking. Consult it to your doctor and follow a proper meal plan. Try to notice symptoms of COPD, as lung irritation, family histories and by diagnosis result.
