I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct place but just wanted to introduce myself. I've had GERD for 3-4 years and it's been controlled by Prilosec once daily until recently. The doctor is having me to take 2 Prilosec each day for 2 weeks. Breathing difficulties are driving me crazy. Everything from shortness of breath to the feeling of having something in my throat are more than annoying. I've been on Xanax for a couple of years for anxiety and I've weaned down to only .25/day. I'm wondering if that is aggravating the breathing situation. Well, that's my introduction. I look forward to reading more posts.
