Trouble breathing with swelling
I am 30 years old and have had trouble breathing off and on since I was 12. This is accompanied by heart palpatations, swelling in my hands and feet, and dilated blood vessles. It is almost strictly when I am too warm (although the environment may not necessarily be warm)and I get enormous relief if I am able to go outside in the cold weather. I also feel slight relief if I lean over. This happens all summer long, all during my preganacy, or any time that I am too warm. It is difficult to stand or to talk.I do not wheeze or cough and I have never smoked or been aroung 2nd hand smoke. I sometimes have a migraine with this but not always. I have been tested for asthma, had a chest xray, and have had my heart tested (although I am not sure what tests were performed) and all of those came back negative. Other than this, I seem to be fairly healthy and am not prone to sickness. What other possibilities are there that I may look into?

There are some endocrine problems that can cause some, if not most, of these symptoms.  I would speak to your physician about possible causes and have some further tests performed to make the diagnosis.
