I wanted to believe my chronic shortness of breath was anxiety because I'm in my 30s and somewhat young still but I need opinions. If I ride my bike I don't choke for air because when biking I'm hunched over. Simply walking WILL make me out of breath literally just walking 1 minute and I'm only 200 pounds! Not really obese. I use to be able to run up all the stairs I wanted 2 years ago. Now just walking I choke for air, get lightheaded and start twitching my left arm. EKG said I was fine. Same with blood test but come on something is wrong and this can't just be anxiety. I'm thinking GERD, thyroid, lung or heart, blood clot or a blood sugar issue. Even those the blood test said I'm not diabetic. Medical health is failing me and I need to reach out to as many as possable

Do you smoke? I do. and I could also run stairs but it has caught up with me. I, too, am short of breath walking anywhere.
i have never smoked in my life. there is something really abnormal about my shortness of breath for someone whos an average size like me tho
