Need to breath more air
Hello doctors, From past couple of days, I've this constant feeling of breathing more air. I feel relived when I yawn as there is more oxygen going in. I checked my accident saturation and it's 98. I do NOT feel dizzy or lightheaded. I just have some pricking pain in chest, which doctor told was gastric. ECG was done 3 times to rule out heart disease and that came normal. I do NOT smoke or drink and I'm 25 years old. But I'm overweight. I get enough sleep at night. Can obesity cause these issues? I also had a chest X-ray and blood work 4 months back and it was all normal. Please suggest something. Its not that im breathing vigorously, but I'm not satisfied with normal breathing
