Feeling Out of Breath When Full

Is this an odd thing? I have always been this way. Even before cancer. When I get full or even begin to feel full I find it hard to get a good breath. I get this sensation of like needing to breathe deeply or even yawn. I actually have to stop eating because it's such an uncomfortable sensation. I have seen people whose noses run when they feel full. The deep breathing that I do when I get full though always made my hubby kind of laugh at me. Now that I am post cancer I hate it because number one I feel it's worse now. I get a terrible full sensation in my chest, not my tummy. I feel it in my neck too. Does anyone feel like they need to breath in more deeply or yawn as they eat? Or am I just real odd ball? In some ways it's a good thing. I know when I am getting full and it makes me stop eating!

you're not an oddball, or maybe we both are. I have asthma and I feel out of breath when full often. Getting in the habit of taking a deep cleansing breath in through the nose and out through the mouth several times during a meal might help... some times I "forget" to breath when I'm "inhaling" food. I'm yawning just reading about it!

hi,
Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogger roll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

You're not an oddball, it happens to me if I eat too fast.

You know I do have this too....it makes me feel guilty because I am thinking I ate way too much that's why I cannot breathe anymore:)

Hi Sandi. I asked David about this, and he said you may have a mild hiatal hernia or a problem with your diaphragm. You probably get burps and/or reflux also. If your chiropractor works with those areas, see him/her.
That may help.
