This morning our 13 year son awoke us at 5:30 in the morning as his 13 year old broher was running out of breath and running from one end of the room to other gasping for breath. He was really gasping for air, I ran upstairs to his room and I patted him in the back/neck/shoulder blade area, he burped big time, He burped a couple more time before he was completely fine. But it scared us a lot. This is the third incidence. The first one happened a two weeks ago while sleeping and I patted him and he was ok after he burped. He told me that he happened to him in school too and he patted himself and was fine after that.He is normally a burpy person, could brup all alphabets. I didn't pay much attetion, but I think it is serious now. He had reflux problem as an infant, if that contributes anything to the issue that he is having now. Please help!
