I don't want to call it "shortness of breath" because I can breath deeply with no problem. It just feels like I need to take deep breaths way too often.
Your more uncomfortable breathing could be because of the mitral valve prolapse, which causes blood to back up within the Left Atrium, subsequently causing pressures to build up within the lungs.
Supposedly, the buildup of pressure within the lungs is worsened when laying down.
