If you can't finish a sentence without feeling out of breath and you have an upper respiratory infection you really should be seen by a physician as you may have a physical problem going on that needs attention.
You said this is new for you so please follow up. When i had pneumonia I was very short of breath. Our physical illnesses can easily kick up our anxiety too. Hope you are feeling better soon.HugsKitt
I am glad to hear the shortness of breath has gone away for now. I would be interested too in hearing what foods your Mother was told to stay away from for GERD.
Thanks and take care.Kitt
