Short of breath

For the last 6 WORKING DAYS, I have felt very short of breath, I feel as if I cannot get enough air into my lungs. I am assuming this is stress related. Is there anything I can do to feel more comfortable - awful feeling?
Should I see my Dr.?

PK, I suppose it might be due to stress, but it might also be due to lung infections, heart problems, other lung problems, etc. The best would be to see your doctor if it hasn’t started clearing up by the time you receive this reply. Good luck.
