Re: Being obese causing shortness of breath?
Like the other users said before, the two of them really go hand in hand - as well as a numerous amount of other health issues. Being obese or overweight isn't necessarily about your waistline but it's about being out of shape also. That's going to affect all your organs and overtime really put strain on them - as with your shortness of breath.
Obviously if you're posting this question on a forum, you are concerned and I believe you should definitely go see a doctor as soon as possible and get him to check you over - not just for your breathing but to see if there is any other strain that is going on.
Hope that helps.
