5 weeks ago i started feeling shortness of breath, then it became worse and got better after a few days, it was very debilitating almost like asthma. I went to the doc and he didn't find anything wrong, then my stomach started bloating and i realized that the pressure it caused on my lung made it hard to breath.
I've tried changing my diet, and trying home remedies like eating honey, apples, yogurt, no spicy food, smaller meals, and for a while things had improved. All of a sudden i got the shortness of breath again, it is severe, since i have had asthma as a child and don't remember it being so scary. I went to the doc again and he's doing some tests, a blood test to see if i have an ulcer, my mom's side of the family has had ulcers in the stomach before so my doc said that it was possibly an ulcer.
He gave me Zantac and we're waiting on the results of the blood work.
I've also had burning feeling under my sternum and esophagus, a feeling of something stuck in my throat, but they're gone, now it is only bloating in my stomach and shortness of breath.
The doc said that if the test comes back negative i should do an endoscopy.
This is weird to me, it came in so all of a sudden and it's been there for a month or so.
I go back and forth if it is GERD, ulcer or hiatal hernia, or a combo of all 3
The breathing thing is so debilitating, i have it today and it puts me in an altered state almost from not breathing right.
I bought some Mastic Gum capsules, just in case is H.Pylori. I hear that kills the bug.
