This sounds like it could be serious, as others have recommended, seek Urgent Medical Care! Everything from Asthma, Blood Pressure, Low Iron, COPD, Med reactions, to Heart function issues, you need to be checked out by your Dr, or the ER! Gosh, we can't have one of our own go down, while caregiving! Take care quickly!

Venus I agree with everyone see your Dr immediately or go to the ER if you are in serious distress.
There are many reasons for being short of breath some of them life threatening. You say you have had Asthma for many years and it could be that your medications need adjustment which is something we can't help you with. It is unlikely that urinating is the cause of your breathlessness but rather what you do immediately prior to sitting on the toilet. Whatever it is you need medical attention.

It could nothing to worry about, but it could be something that requires urgent treatment. See your doctor as soon as possible, do not try to figure this out for yourself online.

08/26/16.... Venus, I had the same issue, my gosh bringing up the laundry from the basement up to the 2nd floor made me feel like I had ran a major marathon. I had this for a few years, developed right after I had major surgery and was trying to help my aging parents. I also was in my 60's.

Just recently it found I am not having quite the issue since I was placed on a very mild anti-depressant and a tranquilizer. Thus, for me it was all stress related. I should have done this years ago.

See your doctor and describe your symptoms immediately. It could be a number of things. Don't ignore it. It needs to be evaluated. That will give you peace of mind and an opportunity for treatment, if it's needed. Please post back and let us know how you are doing and what you find out.

If you are looking for reassurance that this is a normal part of aging you aren't going to get it from me. Make an appointment with your doctor, today.
