  • "weighty" feeling

    A few months ago (when it was HOT & HUMID), I felt SOB along with what felt like my legs were cement weights! Also, a full feeling in the upper stomach area.and bending over, you feel a little tightness in the throat..then after a few days, it was gone. Just had it again today...yet 2 days ago I felt great! Nice and cool up here and was walking around and just fine...maybe HCM related?

    Cynthia, lots of people feel that way. That's something else you should discuss with your doctor.
