    I get out of breath easily now that I'm in Perimenopause, sometimes I run out of air as I'm still trying to finish my sentence. It's a little embarrassing. I sound like a smoker sometimes. I do need to ramp up my cardio though. I think regular exercise can really help with this. I find that when I'm practicing Yoga regularly, I can also take deeper breaths. Maybe this could help you out, as well? 

    Take Care!

    You are not alone. I went through a period of that where I didn't feel like I was getting enough oxygen. I still feel the need to take deep breaths, but it has gotten better.

    You are not alone. For past week half felt just like you. I went to my doc. She was thinking maybe blood clot. So had xray ,next is ct scan. When walk sometimes I need to stop because so short of breath.so happy to have this website.

    I also have been going through this. I had chest x rays and ct scan they found nothing . It is very annoying getting short of breath just doing normal stuff like talking. Feeling like i cant take deep breathes . I can sympathize with you! The only solution my Dr could offer was to do more cardio.

    Same here! It's part of Perimenopause ive been to Drs and cardiologist ran many tests and was told anxiety Can do this which is major part of peri/ menopause! Definitely try the breathing techniques which work and yoga is the best. I know it's scary I get this all the time too. Prayers lifted to those affected! 🙏🏼??
