You mentioned you are 40 lbs. overweight. This is a major contributing factor. I'll be the extra fat is affecting your breathing when you are bent over. I know because I have gained a few inches in my waist and I can feel it when I bend over. The other contributing factor is you are doing work/exercise that you don't do on a regular basis. I do all kinds of exercise including serious weightlifting, yet when I shovel the snow on my driveway, I am out of breadth and and feel it the next day. Our bodies get used to regular exercise but when we do something different, we feel the difference.

You are getting excessive aerobic exercise. I know. Nobody is going to believe that crap. It is a real thing. It took two yrs for doctors to diagnose it properly of maybe they didn't want to. A cardiologist who was also a marathon runner finally confirmed what I had suspected but couldn't prove or even believe myself. He suggested not getting so much aerobics and doing some sprinting and weightlifting.

Of course I would advise you get some sort of cardio screening at this point since ya never can tell. I did the treadmill, the 24 hours monitor thing, and a some kind of ultra-sound scan to make sure I didn't have an actual heart problem. All systems were Green and Go. Just couldn't catch my breath and my heart was "wiggy" as far as regulating itself in variable conditions. Especially involving bending and stooping. But I could ride a stationary bike all day at 190bpm at age 47.

No, totally wrong.

Sorry but you can only be wrong in this instance. I lived it and have the knowledge. You lack any ability to comment correctly due to lack of knowledge. You are free to think whatever you want and know in your heart what is true but that doesn't mean it is true. Sorry. Wrong

She stated that she, "goes on the elliptical, walk, ride my bike." What in that sentence leads you to believe she is getting excessive aerobic exercise? What exactly is excessive aerobic exercise? There are people who run over 100 miles a week or more. I would consider that excessive, not what she is doing.

Being hunched over i think you aren't able to fill your lungs in the same way you can while riding a bike or running on a treadmill. So your heart works harder. Just like if you held your breath to run up two flights of stairs.

Could be orthostatic intolerance, otherwise known as POTS.

Same here. I'd like to know, as well. I can walk laps around the mall, lake, track, and feel refreshed, but any bending / stooping / lifting such as what's required when detailing hard-to-reach parts of an SUV wear me out in much less time.

Following this thread.

The very rare condition YOU were just diagnosed with? What are the chances of that?

Occam's Razor is a thing.

Please visit your doctor. I noticed some shortness of breath when doing housework and they found some moderate aortic stenosis. My point is it could be a number of possibilities that cause your rapid heart rate when doing vigorous aerobic cleaning. It could be lung-related, a treatable heart issue, or something else. Better to find out if something is going on or if it’s simply the bending over that’s making it harder to breathe fully.
