    Yes, lack of sleep CAN cause shortness of breath, as can a multitude of other things, and it can cause problems if not treated (sleeping)!Our bodies are machines that have to be maintained! The very basic needs are to eat, drink, exercise and s l e e p! With no drastic lapse in either category!Our bodies need between 6 – 10 hours to recharge!!! depending on the individual person! Allowing yourself one or two 20 minute naps during the day can help your body catch up significantly faster (no longer or it doesnt work right!!! it needs to be 15 – 20 minutes (or) a couple of hours)!Keeping up with the hours you are sleeping, will help you know when to add extra sleep into the mix! Then you can schedule it into your day! Also keep up with how you feel before and after sleeping, as that data will help you see where your body falls in the 6 – 10 hours needed daily (such as, cranky, sad, mad, normal, or whatever)! You will also have hard evidence to show your doctor if you are not better in a few days!You should also be aware of the amount of fluids you are drinking and the food you are eating! A shortage of any of these basic things can cause shortness of breath, fainting, and/or weakness, especially upon exertion! Too long between meals/snacks, or fluids, or sleep, or exercise is not good for the body! You should avoid a full exercise regime until you recharge!!! such as no hard running, no contact sports that cause exhaustion, only mild – medium exercises!If this continues after a week, or less, of trying these things, you should seek the advice of a medical doctor! If it is severe and sudden, you should seek medical care immediately, as asthma also causes shortness of breath!
