I'm hoping I can find someone here who had similar symptoms.

I was diagnosed with Asthma last June. I had asthma as a child, went away and now it's back. I'm a 26yr old female who was leading a pretty healthy life.

Since about October I've had these symptoms that no one knows what's causing them. I'm constantly spitting up my food and liquids that I intake during the day and walk around with a bottle so that I can spit this up. I'm also spitting up what seems to be white mucus. My throat always feels filled with mucus and I don't feel the air go down my throat when I breathe.

My asthma is pretty under control, my peak flows are always above my "green zone". Yet I find myself breatheing deeper than usual. I always have the feeling that I have to burp and it makes it a bit difficult for me to breathe. Sometimes it'll take me days to get a simple burp out. The burps feel like their in my chest or at the bottom of my throat.

I'm barely eating (if I eat twice a day that's a lot), I have no social life because I'm constantly spitting things up and I just feel like at times my lungs just don't want to breathe anymore. My heart rate is usually between 85-103!

I went to a GI and was told my endoscopy was perfectly normal! My asthma doctor and any one in the ER who has seen me say my lungs are clear and good, my EKG's are normal. It's not post nasal drop because I take Nasonex twice a day for it to no avail and my nose is constantly congested even with the Nasonex. Whatever it is, it's messing with my breathing as it gives me asthma symptoms even though my peak flows are normal.

Oh and I also have constant chest pains but according to my x-rays everything is fine.

Someone, anyone have something similar to this and can help....

Have you done a barium swallow or gastric emptying study? Seems like some kind of motility issue with your esophagus or stomach. I am not a doctor though, that's just what it sounds like to me.
