Reflux: First,you should see your personal physician a good and thorough history and physical exam. Based on those findings will dictate what test(s),if any,should be done. Reflux certainly would be on the list and could be responsible for your symptoms. You could end up getting an xray of your chest,lung function study,and possibly an endoscope exam to look at you stomach and esophagus.
