    Does anyone else get this with LPR, esophagitis, gastritis and overall GERD????

    I have already posted my story on here but just to recap I have all the above with my most painful symptom being the inability to breathe. For the last two weeks I have been on Nexium and Carafate which have helped me a lot. I am a lot better today than I was two weeks ago. I'm no where near perfect but I'm not gasping for air anymore.

    I have noticed when I walk outside and the temperature hits me I have a brief sensation of choking. Does anyone else get that? It is like my body has to adjust from being inside with the air conditioning to outside and the natural elements.

    Is this normal? I wish it were all in my head but I was walking and talking with a coworker/friend with this happened so I was not even thinking about it. I've noticed this happening a lot but more so when it is hot. Since I live in TX it is still in the 90's with humidity.

    Thanks for the help!

    Dear stim,

    Did your gastroenterologist consider the possibility of pulmonary fibrosis?

    Have you ever had a CT high resolution lung scan performed?

    Your specialist will know what tests are best for you based upon your history.

    Take care and God Bless.

    stimi,

    Sorry I can't help. I just wanted to mention that my breathing greatly improved with Nexium, too. I can now make it up the stairs (all 12 of them) without gasping for air and go longer distances before running out of breath. There were times I couldn't walk up 5 steps into the clinic for my appointment without being drastically out of breath and gasping for air by the time I arrived. My chest doesn't hurt constantly anymore from sucking in the air, either.
    I don't understand the connection -if my SOB is caused by the hiatal hernia, why does the PPI for my GERD help when the asthma meds didn't? Lungs are where the breathing happens.
    I have the choking sensations even indoors. They do not happen often but come out of the blue for seemingly no reason at all and I feel like I am drowning on nothing. I thought the SOB was causing that. Heat and humidity make EVERYTHING worse, especially the breathing. On very hot days, I couldn't even walk downhill - only a few steps at a time. Plus, the heat made me swell like a baloon. A double whammy. I blame my severe hypertension and numerous meds for that. It's hard to distinguish symptoms from side effects. My shortness of breath was/is absolutely the worst. My number one complaint for months. As you know, when you can't breathe, nothing matters. Does this mean we have to take the PPIs for life? I am spending a fortune on my meds already!
    I will read about pulmonary fibrosis, as phoenix suggested. BTW, I only had pulmonary function tests done so far, no lung scans. They indicated asthma but did not discount other causes.
