Can Stomach Problems Cause Shortness Breath
See below: The test that I think of for breath testing is for helicobacter pylori, which is a bacterial infection of the stomach that can cause gastritis or stomach ulcers.

Dipping Tobacco Bad: Saliva leaches the nicotine out of the "dipping" tobacco & decreases blood flow to the oral, esphogeal & stomach mucous membranes.

Otherwise discontinue the Naproxen and you may require an endoscopic evaluation of the stomach to confirm ulcers. At the very least take a ppi or food with naproxen. ...Read more

If I'm not mistaken I think this is a duplicate question regarding stomach problems and seizures, correct?
Please define your stomach problems to begin with and then, fully describe your seizures AND THEN, describe the relationship between these 2 things in terms of their timing to one another. ...Read more

Also, I need a description of what you mean when you say "mild seizures." On the surface, I see no relationship between those 2 entities but again really depends on what you're referring to before making that a firm statement of fact. ...Read more
