    GERD.Capsule Endoscopy/Hiatal Hernia/Breathing Problems

    Has anyone had a capsule endoscopy? I'm supposed to have one and I'm resisting it. I had a regular one years ago that diagnosed the hiatal hernia. I also have GERD and breathing problems (I'm 75) that began a couple of years ago. I was diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease but the steroid puffer doesn't help at all.

    So--now I'm seeing a gastro who thinks that it's possible the breathing problems are caused by the GERD/hernia. GERD can irritate airways as I understand it--inflammation.

    So I'd like to know if anyone has had the capsule--if anyone here with GERD has had breathing problems--if anyone is diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease. Does anyone think mold (which I would think would have to be at high levels?) is an exacerbating factor?

    I know--lots of questions.

    But I'm interested in any answers you have.

    Oh, yes, I do take Omeprazole but I've not been faithful with it daily.

    Thank you!!

    I have a large hiatal hernia and gerd for over 20 years. Never had a capsule endoscopy. I do get breathing problems at times which could be related to aspiration into lungs. I am 71 and have been on ppi's for over 20 yrs. In recent times have had some difficulty with swallowing. I hope you can find out if the capsule endoscopy sheds new light on your situation.
