Breathing Difficulties

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have their breathing change after they eat - mine gets much shallower and rapid. My doctor has told me it is because I smoke.....granted, I should quit smoking but if this is the case I have gotten very out of shape in just one year - doesn't seem right to me.

Hmm, are you maybe still getting bloated when you eat? Or do you eat a lot at one time? Try to figure out if it's mechanical (your stomach gets big and interferes with your lung space) or a reaction.

I got glutened yesterday, and today I am wheezing. I had no asthma symptoms for a long time, and wasn't exposed to mold, cigarette smoke or animals, which usually make me wheeze. It had to be the gluten.


I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), hypothyroidism, fatigue syndrome, asthma

I've also noticed that after a little exertion, I am out of breath. One day my son asked me why I was out of breath after carrying in the groceries. I don't know if I'm that out of shape or something else is going on. I do go to a personal trainer once a week and don't really notice it there, though. <_<

I spent over 20 years with asthma symptoms, yet extensive asthma testing results were always that I didn't have asthma. I had difficulty breathing...I often felt like I might feel if someone were sitting on my chest. I had a dry cough which never went away. I wheezed. Occasonally I was symptom free for short periods of time, but sometimes it would just re-appear and then plague me for months on end. When I went gluten free, all this went away. When I would eat gluten, it would come back.

I have never been a smoker, but it's obvious to me that gluten caused my asthma-like symptoms.l

Thank you all for sharing your experiences. My gut tells me that it is related to eating and not smoking and it is hard when a doctor doesn't really listen. (I am going to attempt to quit smoking anyway). You have all validated my thoughts so I thank you so much......Noel

Hi Noel, I always know if I have been glutend, because i get very bloated and breathless, I think that it is in my case caused by the bloating. I go to the gym three times a week for a good cardio workout, but when I have this bloating it makes it very hard to get my breathing on track, and when I go to do my sit ups as soon as I bring my head up to my knees I find it very hard to breath. When I am feeling normal without bloating my breathing is OK and I can do all my exercises with no problems. Curious to know if anyone else has this problem.

Sorry should have added been a smoker for 42+ years, now given up 4 years best thing I ever did squash player 25 years runner, going to the gym 15 years. I never had any problems before coeliac symptoms, I have been diagnosed two years now by biopsy. I still go to the gym symptoms or not, just breath a lot harder, but won't give up, "Big high from the UK".
