13yr old Daughter has breathing difficulty


Q: 13 year old girl having laboured breathing, but no wheezing, no mucous, no flem, no ear blockage, no nasal discharge. Last 2 days is worse, as in Malaysia we have heavy haze, (although staying in doors). She has had trouble with gastric in past, but no sure it is related.

Also in past, when it is hot and she is performing for sports, she has also become short of breath and basically could not perform.

I am the father, with history of asthma related to all animals, dust, but not affected by heat and sports activity.

Symptoms:  Chest is feels heavy (like a weight on it), she is tired and is sleeping much more.
