Re: Can Acid reflux cause these symptoms?
What exactly is the Vagus nerve? Aside from shortness of breath can it also make the throat feel weird? Sometimes, at the base of my throat, I get feelings I can't describe. I don't know if I'd call it tightness, it's just not normal. It's not constant and it usually accompanies my other symptoms. At this point I'm not sure if it's a result of the reflux or anxiety. I get anxious a lot now, especially when the shortness of breath occurs. The feeling seems worse when I lay down, which is why I'm still up at 4:30 in the morning, it's just bothering me too much. It recently started up again (along with the foot and liquid collecting in my throat) after I took an anti-acid pill and ate a slice of cheese.
Of course, when I think of it, I wonder if my throat has narrowed because of three years of constant acid reflux. I also burp a lot sometimes, and at times my burps even get caught in my throat (I never would have thought that possible) and it really hurts when that happens.
