hyperacidity, spasms and asthma


i am a 30 year old man who suffered from different symptomes since almost a year now.

I started to have painless throat spasms,chest spasms a tight chest and stomach pain after taking a small dosage of ritalin for 2 weeks ( to study). I also started to suffer from asthma symptomes.
I did test positive for asthma and was put on medication, which did not do anything for the throat spasms and not much for the tightness in the chest. As a side effect the medication made me very nervous. ( corticosteroid spray and ventolin)

after taking the medication for 3 weeks i drunk a small amount of alcohol and that night i was throwing up the whole time. The next morning it felt as if my oesophogus was burned and i started to suffer from severe stress, sleeplessness due to a nervous feeling in my stomach and palpitation like feeling after eating.

3 days after the burning issue i went on holiday to a hotter climate for a month and could stop the asthma meds. I still was very sensitive to food and after eating fried food i suffered terribly.

Back home all isues started again and got alot of palipitations and chest pain together with a nervous feeling in the stomach.
i got my heart checked and nothing was found.
got my stomach cehcked and grade A ( so minor) acvid reflux was detected.
And still got asthma so was put on the meds again which made my symptomes worse.
3 weeks later i had a checkup for my asthma and the doctor told me my lungs looked fine.
But i still had a tight feeling in the chest and the spasms in throat and chest.
i also got a feeling of internal tremor in my chest at night and ofter lost my voice ( which i believe was due to acid)

then a new exam session started again so i had to take ritalin for 5 weeks, in a small dosage.

when i got off the ritalin i developped spasms, twitches, nervousness and even nerve pain all over my body + the acid feelings i spoke about before.
got mri's eegs, ct scans, everything.
was put on anti seizure meds which made everything worse not better.
in the end , after being admitted in the hospital for almost 2 weeks and endless ER visits the dr told me nothing is wrong with my nerves and brain and that it was stress related. most of thos symptomes are still there, to al esser extent, now 5 months after my last ritalin intake.
they are worse during stress ( then i get tremors, and twitches in the face, hand or even other body parts)

i still sufur from a feeling of acid in the stomach, and since 3 days my asthma symptomes are comming back.
i stillr relate the asthma symptomes and the acid together...

since yesterday i started taking Natrum sulfuricum 30K 3x3 a day but have yet to see a relief in my symptomes.
My asthma seems better but the acid feeling in my stomach is terrible and prevents me from sleeping.
I even started to sleep with the head of the bed elevated since yesterday.

Next week i have an appointment for a lung and stomach examen but i still prefer to fix my issues without harmfull medications
