what is "shortness of breath"

when reading up on PH, I always see "shortness of breath."  how does one define this?

would I be considered short of breath if I am simply aware of increased respirations when going from sitting/lying to standing, or walking on a level field.  Is just the awareness of breathing cosidered shortness?  Or are we talking, one would need to sit down or stop their activity, have open mouthed breathing and take a while to rest before being normal again.

I do notice my breathing increased with simple things, like standing from sitting or walking uphill slightly, but I still breathe through my nose and I can continue what I'm doing and feel normal again if I walk on a level area.

sometimes it's a terrible thing to be so aware of bodyily changes.
