Hello, I'm new here, 24 year old male. Call me Mo. I was trying to research my issues and came to this website. I finally got a GI appoinment but it isn't until May 11th. I thought I'd get some info from you guys before I go there and explain to him what's going on.
 
1. I have stomach GAS 24/7....I burp all the time. Luckily, I can do it quietly w/out having people noticing it.
2. I have excessive stomach acid. To a point where it will come up my throat, in to my mouth. Sometimes at night, it can get very bad where I'll have to push it out because food is stuck in my throat. It brings up more acid w/ food.
3. Shortness of breath. More like, every few breats, I'll have to take a deep one because it feels like I didn't take enough air in.
4. Feels like something is stuck in my throat a lot of the times (could be from acid?)
5. I have burning throughout my stomach sometimes.
6. Oh, and to top that, I also have IBS symptoms.
 
Sounds like GERD? I don't have heartburn...at least I don't think I do. I mean, I am exactly not sure what it is but I do not have burning chest. Though I'll have enough gas to have pain in my stomach and chest. Sometimes it feels like I'm having a heart attack. I'm so used to it now, to a point, I know it's not my heart.
 
Do these sound correct to you guys? I'm especially worried about the breathing, having to take deep breath every few breaths...and the lump feeling in my throat......drives me insane sometimes.

Hi there! Yes these symptoms are very like mine. I didn't get the heartburn until about 3 years after the other symptoms. The acid can give you asthma hence the trouble breathing. The PPIs should sort you out to a certain extent maybe even 100%. I was allergic though and have just had the Nissen Fundoplication. Good luck on the 11th! :-)

Thank you. I'm sure most people heard these symptoms and lived through them. Since I'm not diagnosed yet, I ask. Thanks for your answer. Hopefully it'll get better.....

1 thing....does the food stuck in throat stay for over a day? I had it since last night and it's 2pm and still there.....bottom of my throat.

Hey, I didn't know what PPI was until I looked it up last night. Something I do take, Prilosec. Even though I didn't take it everyday. But last week, I started taking it everyday, didn't work much so last night I thought I double it so I took it last night. I have to see the Gastrologist in 2 weeks so I figured, I'll take 2 a day to see if it it does anything.
 
I don't have any symptoms right now, except something stuck in my throat feeling is still there. Near collar bone and under adam's apple....along w/ gas and lots of it. Always burping and sometimes gas is there but it doesn't come out all the way, just gets stuck in throat.
