May be due to muscle spasms or costochondritis. Consult a chest specialist.

Mild breathlessness

Early morning occasional mild breathlessness - I swim for about 2 & 1/2 hours every day - for some time I do underwater swimming up to 12 foot depth. I have been diagnosed with reducible hiatus hernia. I am wondering if the chlorine in the swimming pool could affect the lungs adversely? What could be causing the discomfort?

Mild wheezing and Asthma

Is it possible to cure wheezing completely by strict medication, diet and excersice within a year? I've wanted to join marine engineering and for that I need to prepare myself and I'm very serious about it fro my childhood. For the past 2 years I've been suffering from this wheezing trouble at the morning sometimes when I wake up or sometimes rarely at other times. Now that I've to join a marine college next year after I complete my Btech., I need some help for becoming completely medically fit without this mild trouble. I'm also thinking of doing swimming and running daily with proper medical guidance and diet.
