I can pretty much agree on the GERD...Also the shortness of breath, gasping feeling like your not getting in enough air, well I have been going through that for some time now...I just saw one of my new doc on Thursday and he says it is due to the aniexty.
He asked me if I sigh a lot...Yes, I do especially when I go to bed, I find my self sighing...It's my bodies way of trying to relax...
I would suggest you see an gastroenologist, (stomach doc) and then an MD for the aniexty....
Oh I see. I've read about GERD and think my symptoms are quite similar to it. In addition, indigestion too. Well, I eat too fast I think. =X In school, I hardly have time to have my lunch. It's either I skip lunch or eat fast. Hence, maybe that aggravated the whole problem, causing me to feel that daily. Sometimes, I'll have nausea periods like, if I scent, see or think about food, I'll feel nausea. Other times, I may feel nausea when I scent meat.

Okay. How bad can GERD get?
I think today was quite bad compared to other days when I have it. Antacids didn't exactly help. I took it and it was gone for a few minutes and it came back again. Then I felt so weak like I couldn't walk properly.
But I skipped lunch today cause I didn't have time to eat. So, maybe that made the condition worst for today?

Lots of info here already......this is my 2 cents
Many of the somatic symptoms such as pain, weakness, fatigue, abdominal pain remain unexplained by identifiable disease even after extensive medical assessment. Several general terms have been used to describe this problem somatisation, medically unexplained symptoms, and functional symptoms.
Some common functional symptoms and syndromes
You have described sx that lean toward gastro, however I would not want to guess at the shortness of breath. You are very young for cardiac disease but with all you sympotoms, IMO, you should have a good physical bye your physician as well as a EKG. I believe your physician will refer you to gastroenterologist.
Your posting was very informative, thank you.
Keep us posted as we care about you and a Huge Welcome to Healing Well.

Dear Happy Pills
Hello, I am Kitt and Welcome to Healing Well.
I am glad your physician started you on Paxil and the Klonipin can be addictive so please make sure you use it as prescribed.
I am weaning off benzo now as I had been on one kind or another for 25 years, now they say it is not good for me.........ouch.
It is a very slow process but I can do it. So if you can make sure you and your physician agree that a benzo (Klonopin) is not a drug you want to use for an excesive long period of time you will be better off in the long run...........I wish you happiness and a sunny day.
I am not a professional so this is my personal opinion only.
