I get heartburn at night frequently, and have noticed that the pain feeling is a lot more intense if I am breathing in. Even today, I had heartburn through the night and just have been up for 3 hours, but still get the pain when i breathe in. It is almost muscular in nature...
I have been diagnosed with GERD and been struggling for years, so I am 99% sure that even if this particular symptom isn't normal, it shouldn't be something not GERD.
When I don't get heartburn at night, I don't notice the breathing in aspect of it. Day-time heartburn doesn't give it to me. Anyone else have this?
