Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring
I think the most likely reason for your symptoms is menopause.
Yes, you have been experiencing shortness of breath and bloating for a year and a half , but the symptoms can start out while you are in the peri menopausal transition period, which starts upto a year before actual menopause sets in.
The raised hormone levels corroborate the fact that you were into peri menopause.
You should first see a Cardiologist, since you cannot neglect these two symptoms which just MIGHT herald an undiagnosed heart or lung condition.
A complete blood count, thyroid function test, liver and renal profile, lipid profile, EKG ( electrocardiogram ) , Chest X ray should be done so that any pathology in the heart or lung is excluded.
Once that is confirmed, the diagnosis is menopausal symptoms.
Cutting back on dairy products, indulging in yoga and exercise regularly will help.
Dressing loose, layered garments is advisable.
Reduce smoking / alcohol / caffeine consumption.
Acupuncture, ginger, green tea, vitamin E, soya milk etc are supposed to help but the ONLY scientific medication that would help you is HRT ( hormone replacement therapy ).
If the symptoms are severe enough to trouble you with everyday living, I strongly recommend consulting your OBGYN for a prescription for HRT and taking it for a few months to see if it helps.
All the best.
