Patient :I am a 44 year old female in relatively good shape (I'm overweight, but I exercise daily). I am having some difficulty breathing. It's not terrible, but I don't like it.
Symptoms: I have to inhale deeply like I am sighing or yawning. (This is frequent.) I feel like I am not getting a full lungful when I inhale. I am not wheezing or coughing. I have never had asthma, but I have had gestational diabetes (I don't know if that makes a difference or not).
