Hi,
Am experiencing severe s.o.b. especially over last week. I know I have a small h.h. and possible silent reflux but I wondered if anyone else has such severe breathing problems. Do you feel breathless, talking or eating.

I have recently had an ecg and another chest x ray which were clear. As I have posted previously I cough loads of mucus especially a.m. I have had some very good advice from a moderator on here but just wondered if anyone else has experienced my above symptoms or am I just going slowly mad lol,

I do also feel some slight acid when lying down but not really heartburn feels like I have a tight belt round my diaphragm. Also this is 24/7 anyone else the same.
Regards

How's your breath? And how are you overall? So sorry for your sob. I still do have some sob these couple of days, but differs in intensity. I noticed it's getting worse when I am eating trigger foods like tomato based. My main problem is the mucous in my throat, annoys me alot. Throat clearing most time of the days.
How can you describe your sob? Do you experience it all through out the day aside from talking or eating? How about When exercising? When resting? Which is worse?
As for me, i dont notice the sob when Im busy or even if im doing intense exercises. My activities doesnt seem to affect my breathing. it feels like I just cant breath deeply.

bourne4151, You have company .... Yes, I too have severe shortness of breath and have had this ever since I was diagnosed with GERD. It has gotten much worse since I started taking Nexium. I also have nausea, feel sick all the time, have horrible chest tightness and pain (heart problems ruled out long ago) and chest x-ray showed hiatal hernia back in 2010.

I am certain that Nexium and any PPI is causing my symptoms to be worse. I also believe I am alergic to the ingredients in PPI's. My gastroenterologist is clueless ... says he's never seen a patient with these symptoms and he has NO answers.

I am currently starting to wean off Nexium over a 3-week period to see how I do. My diet has gone very bland over the past couple of years but it doesn't seem to help much.

I'm in Michigan and my gastro doctor has refered me to the U of M (University of Michigan) GI clinic. They are more advanced and perhaps can help me get my life back.

This shortness of breath is so scary.

are you sure you don't have allergies to dustmites? do you have carpet in your home? how about your mattress? if so, trying vacuuming the carpet about twice a week and maybe using protective covers on mattress and pillows. sometimes these can trigger shortness of breath. worth a shot.

I have had shortness of breath with my LPR also, and my primary Dr told me that he has seen this a LOT in patients with acid reflux. I personally think it has to do with the positioning of the hernia disrupting the diaphragm, and depending on what food we eat and how much, it seems to effect it. Are you eating small meals at a time? Small meals are best. I'm a vegan, and I cannot imagine how anyone who eats meat can possibly swallow it with LPR, and meat is very acidic, you might consider giving it up...

yes, AngelCat that is what mine feels like too, that I can't get a good deep full breath.
