Does doing normal activities cause you to have shortness of breath (SOB)?  Sometimes this can be normal if you are not regularly exercising, but it can point to a problem as well.... 
 
"In some circumstances, a small degree of breathing difficulty may be normal. Severe nasal congestion is one example. Strenuous exercise, especially when a person does not exercise regularly, is another. In many situations, however, difficulty breathing represents the presence of significant disease and should be evaluated by a health care provider immediately."

Do You Have Shortness of Breath During Normal Activities?

"What causes shortness of breath?"

"Being unfit, overweight, smoking, other kinds of air pollution, allergies, heart, lung, or blood disease can all cause shortness of breath. It can be a side effect of some medicines. Blocked nasal passages may also lead to difficult breathing, and while this is unpleasant and should be treated, is not a cause for immediate concern."
