Friday, Feb. 9th 2018 6:16 AM

Overheating may cause heavy breathing. This may occur when someone is suffering from fever, or in hot weather.

When it is hot, the body’s metabolic demands increase, and it needs more oxygen. Heavy breathing may help gather more oxygen, but it also helps to release heat and can lower body temperature.

People with a fever may experience heavy breathing or shortness of breath, particularly when they are carrying out activities. This also happens in intense heat.

As long as the symptoms go away after a few deep breaths and a few minutes of relaxation, they are no cause for concern.

However, if heavy breathing gets worse, or is accompanied by symptoms such as dizziness and confusion, people should seek prompt medical care.
