I am sorry you are having these symptoms

how old are you?

being almost 400 lbs can be very difficult

sounds like you may need help from your doctor to help you loose weight

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? bad anxiety symptoms can cause dizziness and shortness of breath

being overweight can cause shortness of breath

you should work on cutting out carbohydrates out of your diet and eating more protein and fruits and vegetables to help you loose weight.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
