Can Dehydration Cause Shortness of Breath?

Answer

Yes, dehydration can cause shortness of breath. Your body requires electrolytes and liquid to survive. When there is a deficiency, it causes your major organs, including the lungs, to suffer. It makes them have to work harder. It also makes the dehydration worse. If you are dehydrated and are unable to keep liquids down to rehydrate on your own, seek medical attention immediately. Depriving your body and brain of too much oxygen can have serious consequences.
