    Question Anyone get breathing issues from weight gain?

    Wasn't sure where to ask this so I thought I'd ask here. Has anyone ever experienced breathing problems from gaining weight? I'm 'only' about 60lbs overweight but it all goes to my belly and neck area and I find myself short of breath a lot. Especially when bending. Just wondered if anyone else had issues like this. I'm losing weight now so hopefully it goes away as reading online all I see are articles about heart failure. (bendopnea)

    5'7'' here - muscular but I was 210 when I started snoring during sleep. Immediately started cutting and got down to 185 - I've been between 180-195 for the last 6 months and haven't snored since.

    182 right now, can definitely lose another 15-20 though.

    No breathing trouble other than the snoring for a bit. Obviously was in bad cardio shape but that's getting better as I lose more as well.

    When I was over 220lb I had trouble breathing mainly when I slept on my left side. I would wake up in the middle of the night with acute breathing and if I moved too quickly to turn around or get up I would feel a sharp pain in my heart. When I dropped the junk food and changed my diet to a 90% nutritional one the pain went away and I could breathe normal again. I put my experience down to eating far too much cheddar cheese. I used to eat cheese for breakfast, lunch, dessert, and before bed, almost every day. When I cut that out altogether my acute breath and chest pains cleared up. I guess my arteries were clogged up because of it which caused the problem. I wanted to lose weight pretty fast so I incorporated a daily routine of cardio one day and calisthenics the next day, and alternated to fill up each week until I got the weight down to 165lb. Took about 4 months.

    Visceral fat packed around your organs will make it hard to breathe when bending over. Things are getting squeezed in there. I have the same issues. When I start dropping belly fat the problem gets better, but yes, it makes it harder to breathe.

    I had terrible sleep apnea when overweight. The fat around your neck can exacerbate that.

    Yes, I did. I was getting so overweight that when I would turn on my back in the middle of the night I would wake up gasping for air and sweating. I had to sleep on my sides and that was uncomfortable. So I lost some weight and the issue is gone. I had to lose 20 pounds to sleep on my back again or the doctor wanted me on a sleep apnea mask.
