Hello everyone! My breathing has been declining over the past 9-12 months. FVC is down to 34% from 48%, and the current MIP is -8. My question is how I "feel vs look" in my mid-torso. I'm not overweight (6'2" and 179), but my stomach feels like there's is something pushing outward. Physically, it feels like I have a pot belly but when I glance downward, or in the mirror, it's not. It's getting a bit annoying. Has anyone else had this feeling? Could it be my diaphragm losing it's tone and making it feel like it's pushing outward?
