    That sounds serious.

    shortness of breath and aches in your chest could be symptoms of heart problems. or even a heart attack. this could be serious go to the doctor now. Good luck I hope your ok.

    It may be that you're over weight or if you sit slouched it compressed the Diaphragm and therefore you cant breathe properly. If you have serious concerns I would consult your GP but I simply advise you to get some fresh air, go on a SHORT STEADY walk and sit up and when you're laying down stretch out so you're diaphragm has enough room to work properly.

    If you have a "wheezy" cough or just simple a cough it may be that you have Bronchitis, it's nothing overly serious and can be treated. If you go to your GP S/He can give you all the help you need to be fighting fit again

    did u pull a muscle.. or move a certain way that you strained something? Go see your doctor.. he can do a chest x-ray on you to make sure its nothing serious.
