Every time i take a sort of deep breath i can feel my heart beat hard for a moment. And i keep having this slight cough, could be allergys.Weird?
Yes: Two reasons - (1) if you cannot breathe through your nose which is common when experiencing allergy symptoms, it can give you a sensation of suffocating (try plugging your nose with your fingers and you will know what i mean) and (2) allergies can trigger asthma which can make it difficult to get a deep breath into your lungs because air can become trapped in the lungs. ...Read more
Could an allergy to aspartame cause shortness of breath or a feeling that I cannot take a deep breath? Very annoying feeling
Unlikely: Aspartame has been implicated as a potential cause for otherwise unexplained and repeating severe anaphylactic reactions. Some patients swear it is a trigger. In small controlled studies, however, a link between aspartame and allergic sensitivity has not been established. I would work harder to identify alternative potential triggers. I would still avoid aspartame due to link with migraines, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does Lpr (silent reflux) cause lung cancer and how likely is it ? If I take quick deep breathes after eating I hear a little wheeze no allergies too
No: LPR does not cause lung cancer. Unless the acidity of the reflux is quite high (<3.9 pH) , it probably would not increase the risk for esophageal cancer either. Do realize that reflux can worsen asthma symptoms and aspiration of stomach content can lead to infection in the lung. By the way, is the wheezing associated with breathing problem? Does it occur when breathing in or breathing out? ...Read more
