Is it difficult to breathe after eating a full meal?
Hello Doctor. I have difficulty breathing but my electrocardiogram is normal, but every time I eat full, I have difficulty breathing. Please help me with this medical advice. Thank you doctor.

Hello. Eating too full makes the stomach bigger, which will obstruct the respiratory muscle, the diaphragm, causing difficulty breathing. So you shouldn't worry too much. To reduce shortness of breath as you said, you should not eat too much.
