Acid Reflux Cause Shortness Of Breath
Q: Can heartburn and acid reflux cause shallow breathing?
Sometimes, I get this "burning breathing" syndrome that is accompanied by a
sensation of shallow breathing. It's a little different than shortness of
breath. It kinda feels like my lungs are chopped off horizontally in the
middle of my chest.
It also gets worse in an air-conditioned room.
This symptom is at its worse during the spring and the summer. Then it seems
to disappear during the fall and winter.
Can anybody relate to this
A:You hang out at home for the ph test and the polyps are totally painless and you would be unaware of them w/o the EGD. As far as my basic ppi history I took prevacid 15 mg once a day for 7 years until it stopped after the gastro excised my polyps. It worked great and I could eat or drink anything w/o any heartburn or discomfort. I ended up taking 20 mg (OTC) prilosec once per day, after large doses of prevacid and protonix failed in 2004. It worked fine for 3 years until I stopped it to see if I could get by on H2 blockers because of the polyps (I used to test stopping the prevacid and never had any problems starting it back up). Damn it I screwed up and shouldn't have stopped the prilosec, since I am back in the same boat I was in before, but there is nothing left to take. I took the prevacid and the prilosec every single day once per day. As for all the stuff below I feel for you and I have non conventional GERD as I always say (I burn all over regardless of eating habits etc). Stomach burns and feels like I have a bar of soap in my mouth sometimes with feelings of breathing formaldehyde in my chest throat and tongue (even get stinging in my nose and referral to my arms sometimes. It is hard not to be depressed when you are having medical problems with no reasonable solution in sight.
