Don't know if i'm posting it in the right category, but GERD is probably where everything started for me. I am a patient of GERD, and have suffered from constant belching from previous 3 months and still haven't get rid of it. Then i caught cough which went on getting severe, i noticed that when cough increased constant belching was reduced. Excuse my weak english though.
So recently i've suffered from severe cough, with vomiting and chest pain caused by intense coughing. I noticed when mucus was coming out i felt a bit better but as with medication my cough grew dry i started developing breathing difficulty, wheezing. The sound in my breathing is sometimes like snoring and sometimes like whistle.

And as cough stopped, belching came back. As for the breathing problem , i suddenly started having difficulty in breathing, it is like having a constant feeling of suffocation, can't take deep breath and feel as my body and brain aren't getting enough oxygen. Narrowing of esophagus has been diagnosed in a test but is it the only reason. The sound in breath increases at night and early morning. The worst part, now i can't sleep because as i start falling asleep i suddenly feel my breathing has stopped as i wake trying to take deep breaths, my legs, arms and head feel numb. I hope this isn't sleep apnea. And when i wake like this i have to force out many belches to become able to take deep and full breath, yes, weird but true.

You need to see a doctor about sleep apnea before you do anything else. Sleep apnea causes your body to do a lot of funny things, as documented by a guy I work with.

The combination of symptoms that you have, to me, points more to apnea as the source rather than reflux or lpr. Keep in mind, I am not a doctor, but I do have fifteen years of reflux under my belt and have heard extensive stories about crazy apnea symptoms.

Rule out sleep apnea first my friend.
