Is this all down to me being fat???
I'm very overweight, 5ft 3in, age 46 and i weigh 15st 12lb ( 101kg). I am concerned that i have started to notice something different happening to me,and want to know if others have the same problem.
When i bend over to do something i can't breathe, for example, if i have to do buckles up on my shoes, or try to cut or paint my toenails i can't breath. Is this just my fat belly crushing my heart and organs!
I got out of the shower tonight and was a bit short of breath, but i put my foot up on the edge of the bath to dry my lower leg and foot and i could not breath, it's like my heart is being crushed ( not painful) but there is just no oxygen going through. Is this what all us big people get. I never used to get this.
Once i stop doing what i'm doing and stand upright again i can breathe again, but i'm very short of breath because i have had to go a few seconds without being able to breathe.
Please tell me any stories of how you guys have this problem.
Thank you .
