I'm a 73 yr old woman, hike 14,000 ft mountains still, but last June started having shortness of breath as if I WAS at 14,000 ft, but was only at 5,000ft where we live. No chest pains or tightness; active, normal weight, non smoke, non drink. Could this be an early sign of artery blockage?
It's possible. do you feel chest pain or tightness in the chest when you do exercise?  you should see a doctor to find out.
