Did anyone have issues with shortness of breath at the high altitudes visiting Jungfraujoch or walking down Grandmother's walk?

We live at sea level in NC, USA and are in reasonable shape, but are 81 and 78, so just wondering?

Jungfraujoch is expensive but worth it to visit once in a lifetime. Be sure to pick a day with good weather predicted. Go early. Later clouds may appear as the morning progresses. It takes a long time to get there and return Be prepared for the possibility of a headache due to thin air at the altitude. We had lunch there, but had to leave because my wife got a migraine headache due to altitude sickness. Some people got very bad headaches. Not everyone. Do not run up and down stairs. I did. About 15-20 minutes went by before I was able to get my breath back.
