Shortness of breath
Can shortness of breath be caused by gaining weight around the middle when I have never had it before? I am 62, female and all cardiac and pulmonary tests have come out normal/good. I seem to have shortness of breath after I eat, when I bend over to pick up something, when pants are too tight and of course exertion like climbing stairs.  It's as if my new fat around middle isn't allowing the diaphragm to expand as it has always done.  I have always had thin middle and now am only about 10 to 15 pounds overweight. I'm not obese at all.
Any suggestions as to the next tests to take?
