ave had shortness of breath or rather hard time getting a deep breath. I have had this symptom for about two years and its driving me crazy. I just recently figured out that it might be candida. I have been to the doctors and they just say i have pneumonia or am having an anxiety attack. It gets triggered really easliy by certain foods, But sometimes just comes about on its own. It is extremely hard trying to raise three kids and not be able to breath. I cough often to try to help the breathing. It is sooo hard to live with this I'm only 28!!!!!
