Hi.  Well, where are you at?  Any chance this could be the corona virus?  shortness of breath is one of the signs of it.  Did they check your blood oxygen levels or offer you a covid 19 test?  Any other symptoms?  There are other viruses and illnesses though that can cause this.  Other symptoms you have would be helpful.

Hi yeh , I had two Covid 19 test both negative ... not really developing into anything else started of with a croaky ( horsing voice a few weeks back but only lasted a few days then went away .... return a few weeks later with this shortness of breath issue oxygen levels seem fine b and x ray is clear , but wbc was a little high so they gave me some antibiotics to try ..... what is wierd is oxygen level is fine but I still fill exapurated.. or short of breath ......
What are they doing next for you? I know a few people who are testing negative for Covid, but their docs are convinced they have it. What kind of covid tests are you having done? Some of the tests seem to have higher false negative rates.

I hope you feel better soon!
