I was so worried when I first experience the shortness of breath and back pain Last April. But I choose to change my diet right away, coz I don't want to suffer and take medication for years. Right diet seems to be so effective. My symptoms disappear one by one, lesser by lesser. I don't burp a lot anymore, no more lump in my throat, no more shortness of breath, just a little cough and little back pain. I really dont know why the back pain comes on and off, it's kind of muscular pain and not that painful. But it still worries me sometimes. But we should not worry that much, as worry always makes everything worse.
I always read from other people with gerd that they've been in hell for couple of years or longer, that makes me feel kind of worried. But still, whenever Im feeling an improvement, I become more determined to continue my lifestyle changes. It does not only help with the healing of gerd, but also help our other body issues and health. Healthy diet also prevent us from having other diseases.
I am by the way a 26yrs old female, 5'1" in height and 101lbs. I'm short, and I think I'm slightly overweight.
