Yes gi says I have medium hiatal hernia and severe gerd, he says I shouldn't have shortness of breath and this severe bloating , I mean busting at the seams. I feel a constant presure pushing from my belt line up to my ribs, very uncomfortable to sit. It feels like I am swallowing air , bloting gets worse through the day even with out eating. I have the phlem in throat which I can't cough up and I do have a like dry cough and i have bad sinus and ear presure. My gi can't explain this to me can some one tell me if this is hiatus or lpr related? Trying to get in to see an ent waiting list till November the bloating and shortness of breath is my main concern!
