fast breath problem

My mother is about 64 years old. She has a problem that whenever she walks she has fast breath even if she walks only 25 steps her breath is fast that she has to stop for a while. When she lie down to sleep again she has this problem that her breath is fast so she feels uneasy to sleep rather cannt sleep.

Pls help me what to do, I took her to the doctor, they took her blood and her liver, kidney and heart all are well. But she has fast breathening... What is this and what should I do?

Pls help me to do some thing. also tell me some exercise to help me in this regard.

Yours sincere,

A poor friend who is suffering
