Re: Trouble Breathing with Light Exercise
First of all you need to rule out any heart problems with your doctor. It could be because you are still overweight and need to lose more but walking should get a little easier the longer you do it. Also, do you have GERD or any other digestive problems? I have a problem with digestion and if I try to walk after I have eaten a big meal, I get winded faster. I think this is because the fat around the diaghram constricts the lungs so they can't fully expand. I also have asthma, but it's well controlled. How fast do you walk? Maybe you should slow down a little. So to summarize , I would go to my doctor and let him run some tests: heart and pulmonary. You could have exercise induced asthma and all you need is an inhaler before your walk.
