Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your symptoms include shortness of breath or breathing difficulty, then you should not ignore your symptoms. Consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider for thorough evaluation to look for the exact underlying cause for the symptoms that you describe and get started on the further treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
