Re: Need Some Answers
They sound like symptoms of LPR ..silent reflux. I too have shortness of breath, and similar symptoms as you. I'll tell you what the doctor would do, recommend a PPi such as Prilosec or Prevacid and see if it helps. This is what my doctor first suggested when I went in with my chest pains etc. I went on to do many tests and haven't come up with anything conclusive, so here I am after not wanting to go the PPI route, taking prilosec to see if it helps. My breathing was getting out of hand and my doctor assured me I don't have asthma. I know it's very scary..maybe if you could go to one doc appt. for them to listen to your heart and lungs, this could ease your mind. Then start the meds and change your diet (no coffee,soda, alchohol, chocolate,spicy,high fat), raise the head of your bed and see if there is any improvement. Good luck! I also take digestive enzymes, and DGL licorice tablets. It is a frustrating condition as there is no definite treatment that works for everyone. Takes a lot of trial and error.
