If your doctor has ruled out asthma, then the tightness in your stomach could be due to your hyperventalating. Too much breathing through your mouth instead of your nose and mouth can cause you to swallow too much air, resulting in gas pains/stomach pain, and cramping, believe it or not. Next time you go for a walk, be aware of how you are actually breathing, making sure to breath equally through your nose as well as your mouth.

Something is definitely wrong somewhere. Have you had your heart checked out in addition to your lungs?

I have copd w/chf and this happens to me all the time... you can have xrays done of your lungs and dr can diagnose from there. good luck!

Do you smoke? If yes, stop it.
How is your weight? If you are upon your weight, go on diet.

If any of these is not true,... go to a doctor!

How old are you? Any personal or family history of respiratory disease? Swollen ankles? Persistent cough? Difficulty sleeping/need to sleep in a chair?

The difficulty breathing after exertion thing is telltale for CHF. But there are a hundred more answers needed to determine this.

The oxygen content of your blood needs to be checked
with a pulse oximeter. It's something most general
practitioners (Dr's offices) wont have. The hospital
ER has them. Cardiology & sometimes Dr's of
Internal medicine have pulse Ox meters in their office.
You will first be tested sitting quietly. Then your asked to
walk slowly then quickly. A pulse Ox reading of 95-98
is normal. Below 95 means your lungs or blood,
sometimes other things, have issues which need looking into.

The short list of common things which may cause breathing issues include:
1) stress/anxiety
2) Lung disease like Asthma, bronchiectasis,
emphysema, pneumonia,
& lots more.
3) Heart illness
4) Dyspnea
5) copd
6) medicines like radiation/chemo
7) overweight
8) Allergies

You might want to start with a Dr. of Internal Medicine
who has lots more training than a general family physician.
P.S. any chance your belt/clothing is to tight?
This isn't a joke for I've seen this with with women.
