It is important for overall health to live a balanced life that includes eating the proper amounts of healthy food, getting daily exercise, sleeping well and maintaining good relationships. And if you are suffering from a chronic illness, it is even more important to have a healthy lifestyle. Being overweight can increase shortness of breath. On the other hand, being underweight can cause you to feel more tired and fatigued.
Dyspnea, or the sensation of difficult and uncomfortable breathing, is one of the most often reported symptoms of respiratory diseases.
