Why Do I Get Short Of Breath When Bending Over?

Why am I getting shortness of breath when bending down or vacuuming? It seems worst when tying my shoes.


You should speak to your physician about this symptom. You may find this symptom checker helpful. It could be as simple as bloating interfering with your lung function, or it could be due to something more serious. It's always best to have sudden onset symptoms - particularly ones that involve the chest or your breathing - as soon as possible.
