In your age shortness of breath during night usually due to chest problems, may be due to asthma. Consult a chest specialist.

Hi, Most cases of shortness of breath are due to heart or lung conditions. Your heart and lungs are involved in transporting oxygen to your tissues and removing carbon dioxide, and problems with either of these processes affect your breathing.
Consult Physician....
