Labored Breathing

In more serious cases, individuals may exhibit labored breathing. This differs from shortness of breath, as individuals may experience gasping, grunting and sweating while trying to breathe. As a result, labored breathing may be exhausting.

Similar to the remedy for shortness of breath, sitting upright may help a person overcome labored breathing. Experiencing frequent, labored breathing may lead to other physical symptoms or may negatively affect one's mental well-being if the breathing difficulty is consistent.
