  • First thing to do would be to go to your doctor and get checked out. I do not think it is from being too fat, although being overweight does tax your body. It could be your heart, or Pluracy (pleurisy), or Costocondritis. Get it checked out.

  • It could also be anxiety attacks. You need to see a Dr.

  • You need to go to the doctor ASAP and yes, it could be from being overweight. Being overweight can make the heart work harder and casue breathing problems. Honey, just go to the doctor and get checked out. It could be panic or anxiety attacks or something else.
