Shortness of breath when not performing a strenuous activity is a symptom every woman should take seriously. Difficulty breathing can be an indicator of several disease processes, ranging from:

- blood clots in the lung
It also could be a symptom of a cardiac problem like a heart attack. If you experience shortness of breath, contact a health professional immediately.
