I assume that you have no rib cage tenderness. After that prolonged period of symptoms which I feel are.not asthmatic, but can be gastric, duodenal or pancreatic, I think you should be seen& evaluated by a gastroenterologist for appropriate testing,accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. Gall bladder causes are less likely. Checking for h pylori will most likely be.included in the testing.
