I am always hot if I do anything I start to sweat and get out of breath. I've had my hormones checked and they are normal. I do need to loose weight but this is excessive.

Hi ! I am sorry you are dealing with feeling hot and out of breath. Excessive sweating can be a side effect of various medications used to treat RA. You can read more about that here -- https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/sweaty-side-drugs/comment-page-1/#comments. You may ask your physician for a full physical to see if your shortness of breath is caused by an underlying issue.
If you find most physical activity causes you to become out of breath, I would definitely talk to your physician before starting any exercise program.
I hope this helps and good luck!
