Hi Anon

Thanks for your question.

There can be many reasons for being light headed and/or short of breath. So many that we'd need more information about your heath and health history as well any recent illness.

Something like a bad flu can cause these symptoms, as could a lung condition or upper respiratory infection. Malnutrition or over-eating could too. And there are many conditions out there that can cause one to feel unwell with these symptoms. It could also be a lack of iron.

Has anything happened recently to you that may be causing this? Have you recently been ill? How is your health, in general?
