Hello @juanito, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I have peripheral neuropathy but I'm not familiar with PN having associated breathing difficulties. If you are having difficulty breathing, I would recommend seeking help as soon as possible. There is a lot of information available on the various possible symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. These links might provide some information for you.

NIH – Peripheral Neuropathy Fact Sheet
@juanito have you been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy?
@juanito I noticed in one of your other posts you mentioned a pacemaker. Do you have a pacemaker? I did find some mention of shortness of breath in a PacemakerClub.com website. Here's a link to the discussion:
I am constantly out of breath
Here's another reference – What Is Pacemaker Syndrome?
Hope this helps.
I have trouble breathing too. I'm on 3 meds for asthma but I'm still short of breath when I'm doing things I used to do without breathing hard. Is it connected to neuropathy?

Hi, @pfbacon – I am not a medical professional, but in researching the connections with asthma and neuropathy, this is the one syndrome I found that seemed to have some links between the two: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/churg-strauss-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20353760.
