It’s normal to feel out of breath during exercise or after physically exerting your body. If you have shortness of breath while your body is at rest, you may have dyspnea. It’s common to have other symptoms while having shortness of breath, including chest pain, chest tightness and a racing pulse. These symptoms signal a medical emergency. Always call 911 if you have trouble breathing.
