Shortness of Breath
Shortness of breath is probably the most distressing of all symptoms. It is felt
when the effort required for breathing is out of proportion to the physical work
being done at the time. Some people have to work really hard to breathe, even to
the point of becoming quite exhausted. Life Alert can give
