Re: Gastritis & Shortness of Breath

Common for folks that have reflux to have it irritate their lungs and sinus as well. That can act like an allergy as the acid is very irritating. The acid from your stomach can mix with the air in your esophagus and get up into your nose , sinus and even ears. I notice when my reflux is bad my ears ring, when it eases up after a few days they get quiet.

If you are doing yoga then it might force some of the stomach fluids up into the esophagus. I had to stop doing stomach crunches when I work out. Sometimes it's just a little squirt that gets by the esophageal sphincter, that's all it takes , stomach acid is very powerful stuff.
