Types of Breathing Problems

While breathing problems are symptomatic of several diseases, the most common conditions that cause breathing problems are:

  • Asthma
    Asthma is a chronic disease in which the airways become inflamed and narrow, causing shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightening.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that results in airflow blockage from the lungs and can cause severe breathing problems.
  • Allergies
    Allergies are your body’s response to foreign substances. Besides several other symptoms, depending on the cause of the allergic reaction, you may experience breathing difficulties.
  • Hyperventilation
    Hyperventilation is when your breathing rate is excessively high, which leads to excess exhalation of carbon dioxide from the body. You may feel dizzy, weak, or confused.
  • Dyspnea
    Dyspnea refers to shortness of breath during which you may have severe breathing difficulties and experience heart palpitations and suffocation.
  • Bradypnea
    Bradypnea refers to a condition when your breathing is abnormally slow. Its causes are hypothyroidism, head injury, exposure to carbon monoxide, or opioid overdose.
  • Tachypnea
    Tachypnea involves a faster breathing rate caused by your lungs’ inability to breathe in sufficient air, so you breathe faster to maintain the oxygen flow.
  • Hyperpnea
    Hyperpnea includes taking more prolonged and deeper breaths, but your breathing may not be faster. It occurs due to your body’s increased need for oxygen.
  • Kussmaul Breathing
    Seen primarily in people with diabetes, Kussmaul Breathing involves fast, deep breaths. To regulate acid levels in the blood, you inhale faster to breathe out more carbon dioxide.
