Re: Difficulty/Restricted Breathing

I have had the same thing. It started about 5 years ago...I thought I had really bad asthma, had every test under the sun. Was told it was LPR. PPI's didn't help. After many many months it got a bit better. I took 2 Zantac a day and watched the acid intake. I don't know if that really helped any, but I stuck to it for a while. Recently my symptoms came back full force. In the mean time I noticed my sinuses were VERY bad. I am wondering if that has more to do with it. I am also having what feels like spasms in my throat and heart flutters. I am not sure if it is really acid as much as spasms. The restricted breathing and globus sensation is by far the worse. Exercising seems to make it even worse. I just had upper GI which came back oxygen levels are fine as well... I was told it is just a sensation but it's bad and consuming. I feel it when my throat spasms so I know I am not imagining it. I was told some anti anxiety meds like Valium may help.
Sorry I don't have much advice but I know how you feel.
