    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    I have the same problem...it puts me into anxiety attacks and i just cant seem to find relief from it.
    Everyday I have a feeling like I can't breathe, terrible! I also have vocal cord dysfuntion, you may want to look into that.

    Do any of you ever get pressure in your face, sinus or jaw area. This makes me crazy. I hate the feeling that I am going to choke and cannot breath. Sometimes I can burp, and that does help a little.. I hate this whole thing!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    Have you tried an anti-histamine?
    I found taking a short term anti-histamine does wonder on my shortness of breath. Seems to work within minutes
    Only use a 4 hour one..you don't need a 24 hour dose.

    That feeling is the scariest...you keep the phone close in case you have to dial 911...I know.
    The first time it happend to me I thought I was having a heart attack!

    To the last poster..

    Yes I've gotten pain in my jaw..in my ear...it's awful!
    And it is related to GERD

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    Yes I have experienced the asthma symptoms, but unfortunatly after trying everything the problem didn't go away. I am now on zyrtec (allergies), singulari(allergies/asthma) and an albuterol inhaler. Yeah acid reflux is such an evil disorder. I cant stand it either! I get shortness of breath, numb limbs, pain in the chest, and sometimes my throat and neck get swollen. Hope you feel better though and take care of your acid reflux....its not fun when it gets out of hand.

    Take Care!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    Yes Yes I totally get the tightness in the throat and choking feeling. I scoured the internet, it feels like I need someone to stretch my throat!
    I do have a motility disorder whcih contributes to it, but they have not given me any medication to help with it. I'm in a hole, but I do know how you feel!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    Hi thanks for your posts... I'd really want to try on the anti histamines... but now I really want to do away with medicines.. I seem to be taking alot! I also have LPR and my doc prescribed me with flu meds.. it seems to help but it leaves me really lethargic and worsens my anxiety.. u know like feeling as if you cannot move and so drowsy...

    Does anyone of you also have a bad case of headache? like a pressure at the back of your head that extends up to you nape around your neck, ears, fase and eyes? I been having that for days now and I am seriously thinking of brain tumor! yes thats how bad my anxiety is!

    Honestly I canot even breath with my mouth close! my mouth is constantly open an dhanging because of this... and do you guys also notice that the air is cold even its inside your body? I mean when you breath it in? its suppose to be hot ones it entered your body but mine still feels cold even inside my nose and throat! Geez when will all this go away!!!!!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    I know what youmean about the air constantly feeling cold. I actually told the doctor this, he looked at me like he didnt understand. Anyway, I get pains in my chest a lot from breathing so hard, and in my head. I think its from the hyperventilating feeling I get after trying to breathe so deep.
    I am at my wits end with this, it's ruining my life, and there are no answers!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    Hi, I am thinking that LPR causes the irritation to that thing that makes the air hot before going into the body... maybe that is why the air is cold.. its feels so bad it makes my throat feel raw! and I sometimes feel like im drowning...

    Yes I have a stomach motility disorder which results in food digesting too slowly contributing to my reflux problems. The specialists took me off reflux meds and put me on domperidone, which aids in digestion. My next endoscope which I schedule he said he will stretch my throat if needed. The constricted feeling interferes with my sleep. But I have chronic nasal congestion also which makes matters worst.

I have tried it before with nexium and ranitidine but I didnt find anything different... well exept it caused me to have tenderness on the chest.. I learned through research that domperidoneis also used by mothers for mik production!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    i too have this feeling of asthma like symptoms and wonder if it is actually asthma. It feels heavy and burny when i breathe in, also hurts a little in between shoulder blades. occasionally i feel short of breath and my throat always hurts and burns inside right above the collar bone. My ENT looked at me yesterday and said it was LPR but said the damage so far was not that bad and vocal cords were good and he didn't see any kind of tumors or such. He also increased me to prevacid 2x a day now. I honestly think he knew more about GERD and acid reflux than my family doctor!!! I take one prevacid about 11am, when should i take the other one? I was thinking right before bed would be best to deal with any acid over night but nurse says take it at 7pm which is when i eat my lunch at work (im on 2nd shift). ENT doc also put me on Pamelor for my severe anxiety though i am completely against taking this he says it will help me get better and to just try it for a month. So how do i know it really isn't asthma besides going to an asthma center and getting checked. I had chest xrays done about 3 months ago and all were good and doctor says breathing sounds fine. IT REALLY DOES HURT, these asthma like symptoms! i'm also to the point now where when i eat i don't get that much down and feel full, VERY FULL! I wish it was the end of the month, then my endoscopy would be done and over with. But i don't think i'll know the results that day anyways since the schedule a follow up 3 weeks later. So I'll have to wait 3 stinking weeks just to find out what's wrong after waiting almost a month and a half to get the darn endoscopy! No wonder we have such high anxiety and all we think about is what's wrong!

    Re: what to do with the asthma like feeling?

    It's funny because I think what came first the chicken or the egg...my anxiety was never this bad. It is this health problem that is causing me to panic!
