Both can cause the symptoms you are describing.

Do you have a fever?

Dr.Customer:

Are you having trouble breathing?

JACUSTOMER-tyd54scd- :

No

Dr.Customer:

Do you have a cough? If yes for how long?

JACUSTOMER-tyd54scd- :

Feel a bit breathless

JACUSTOMER-tyd54scd- :

No cough, symptoms only started today

Dr.Customer:

If you are feeling breathless then you really should go to A&E and be checked out. There are many things that can cause difficulty with breathing, some are very serious.

JACUSTOMER-tyd54scd- :

Thank you

Dr.Customer:

Coughing up dark sputum can be from your lungs, but can also be from your stomach.

Dr.Customer:

The breathlessness is the most concerning of your symptoms.

Dr.Customer:

Your welcome.

I hope you feel much better very soon!!
