) can a mild weight gain cause mild shortness of breath?

Yes

Weight_gain
Weight gain is a common cause of shortness of breath. Moreover, we often gain weight when we're more sedentary. Just a couple of weeks of reduced activity will impair our physical conditioning so that previously tolerated exercise now makes us winded until we work back into shape.

Abdominal pain, swelling, weight gain, and shortness of breath can indicate excess fluid in the abdomen (ascites). This needs to be evaluated. Even if it is not ascites, this pattern needs to be promptly evaluated.

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

Thyroid_gland
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.

Iv had stress test been to pulm dr. , allergy dr, ent dr. Still short of breath. Pulm dr. Says no asthma. Breath shortness 3 months now?

Confusing

Asthma
This sounds like a difficult case. Maybe you should sit down with the pulmonologist to fully understand what they believe is causing the shortness of breath since not asthma. Or consider starting over again with a new pulmonologist for a fresh opinion.
