Gastritis & Shortness of Breath

Hi ...
I've always had stomach problems. Over the last 7 years I kind of got used to them and was able to ignore them. At times during yoga practice my stomach would hurt and certain poses would make my breath shallow. I've also been diagnosed with asthma over the last few years.

Just the other day I ended up with awful heartburn, stomach ache, belching (which I rarely do), regurgitating ... went to gastro who gave me nexium. Allergist believes asthma may be related to my stomach issues that I was ignoring.

I also have this bizarre occurrence of becoming extremely empty in my stomach (usually before a meal) and I start sneezing!

I plan on having a endoscope and colonoscopy (had a polyp when I was 29 so having that checked as well). Just seems that when my stomach calms down, so does my shortness of breath.

I'm still going to yoga, working out ... but it's just not the same. Certain poses are so helpful. As is bending over at about 45 degrees.

Wondering if anyone out there with similar symptoms.
