GERD Shortness of breath

I am 23 years old, after a two hard nights of drinking and spicy food i woke up to shortness of breath and severe discomefort in my stomach. my doctor says it GERD and anxiety. I have had contant shortness of breath with severe episodes which i think are related to my meals but my doctor claims they are totally unrelated and anxiety is the reason for the shortness of breath. I've been on Prilosec and some anti anxiety drung for two week, it's helped a bit i have my apetite back i don't get as much shortness of breath eating but it still comes back at times specially in the eveninig. all my tests were fine but i am still suspisios because i've never had breating problem and I don't underand how all this can appear out of nowhere in one night.
Any thought?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Consider taking Nux.V 30 only THREE doses on consecutive nights. If the problem doesn't relent comeback after a week and post all your symptoms.

Nux vomica is a homeopathic remedy. It can help in hang-over effects of partying, hard-drinking and eating spicy foods.

You can buy this remedy from this site or from nearest homeopathic remedy store.

I suffer fom shortness of breath occasionally, also. Usually worse at night. For me it is related to hiatal hernia, in which a part of the stomach is pushed up through the diaphram. Since this puts pressure on the diaphram, shortness of breath results. Sometimes, I think it is just gas that is distending my stomach - which also pushes agains the diaphram and interferes with free breathing. You must amend your eating habits. Don't abuse your stomach with too much alcohol and junk food. Don't eat big meals at night. And if you are overweight, especially around the middriff, lose weight. All this has worked for me. Also, don't bend over after eating. Hope this is helpful.

hey guys,

Thanks for the advice, the stomach discomfort has slowly improved over the past few weeks but i still have chest tightness and some pains (acid reflux) I also believe that the acid has reached my voice box (LPR not just GERD) and i have some hoarsness in my voice and a little bit of soar throat...still this shortness of breath is a mystry to me specially after meals and in the evening so i am seeing a ENT doctor this tuesday to check my upper respitory and voice box for possible causes.

anybody experienced this? I really think all this has nothing to do with anxiety like my doctor keeps saying..

hey guys,

My ENT doctor today noticed a lot of thrush on my tongue and down my esophageal and rejected the Hatial Hernia theory because of my young age. My stomach discomfort though has continued dispite taking prolisec, now i have hard time sleeping because of my stomach discomfort and it wakes me up in the morning.

I still like to agree with Judy and say I have hatial hernia because of all my symptomes....getting a Barium X-Ray done one of these days to make sure, I always feel like my stomach is sitting on top of my chest and it's bigger than normal.

Any thoughts?
