Shortness Of Breath And Weight Gain

Weight gain, shortness of breath even while sittng, bloating, pain between rib cage and belly button?

I have a rapid weight gain, swelling, heart palpitations, shortness of breath from high B12 levels. How can I lower this and how long will it take?
Not the case: Your symptoms are not from B12 toxicity. 1st, B12 toxicity is rare. 2nd, if you do happen to become toxic, then your symptoms would be numbness/tingling in the hands ; face, panic attacks, insomnia, and maybe rashes. If you already have an overactive thyroid or mitral valve disease, then B12 toxicity may make those worse. Dyspnea would result from worsening mitral disease but you'd lose weight. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
20w pregnant with no weight gain, frequent dizzy spells, shortness of breath, palpitation (normal eating). Baby measure normal on level 2 ultrasound at 19w. Do I need to worry about low weight gain?

A extra pound or two should not cause significant shortness of breath but if you weigh around 100 lbs then 2 pounds of extra weight will have more of an impact vs. Someone who weighs 250 lbs. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
When i lift weights and squeeze and focus i get shortness of breath after my set. Takes a while to catch my breath. I'm in shape. Possible causes ?
Sevral possibilities: Try using a rescue inhaler after your workout (albuterol) to see if that helps. If not, testing for anemia and arrhythmia (holter monitoring) are indicated. You list echo and stress echo - i presume they're normal? Pulmonary function testing might reveal the problem. Have you had a chest x-ray? ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
