I have been having shortness of breath for years. The older I get, the worse it gets. Going up a flight of stairs, carrying groceries, not to mention when I'm out. My blood sugar sometimes drop without notice. I had a pulmonary test done. They think it's adult asthma. I'm confused. While sitting down, if the air isn't on,, I feel short of breath, and the Albuterol doesn't help.
