Why do you feel breathless after eating when you have gerd? And why does it usually attacking at night?

Why do you feel breathless after eating when you have gerd? And why does it usually attacking at night?

Maybe LPR: Exposure of vocal cords to stomach acid ; pepsin results in inflammation of the vocal cords (due to acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Laying down at night often promotes reflux. Check prior healthtap answers 4relief, but see doctor. ...Read more

Nausea after eating bland foods. On going for weeks now. Slow weight lost from this issue. Was told I had GERD but not confirmed.

Nausea after eating bland foods. On going for weeks now. Slow weight lost from this issue. Was told I had GERD but not confirmed.

Not likely just GERD: Nausea/vomiting may be GI-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, even reaction to stress. Find & treat cause pls. ...Read more

I have been sick for 3 months I went to my dr he said I might have GERD but medican isn't working I get nausea after eating could this be anxiety?

Possibly, but the: Only way to know is to seek referral to a gastroenterologist for further evaluation for medical causes. Heartburn is a more common symptom of GE reflux than nausea. If no medical cause is found or if you have other significant symptoms of anxiety, seek treatment by a mental health professional, also. ...Read more

regurgitating undigested food for hours after eating for 3 years now. Gerd medication hasn't helped. I have unexplained exhale wheeze. What can itbe?

Regurgitation Blues: Dude, you need to see a G.I. doctor (or another one). Regurgitating food for that long? Maybe there's a structural problem with the way your esophagus attaches to your stomach that medicine alone can't help--or something else. And you've probably regurgitated in your sleep, causing lung irritation and that wheezing.Also, chronic irritation to your lower esophagus can eventually turn bad, really bad ...Read more

Sometimes I get wheezy after eating dr told me it's probably gerd so basically gerd is ruining my lungs?? I don't have a swallowing problem either

Wheeze after eating: Would follow up with gastorenterologist. May need ranitidine or prevecid if it is reflux as persistent reflux of acid into lungs can be an issue, if treated an noting the underlying cause should not be a problem. Would check for h pylori a bacteria assocaited with reflux as well. Avoid alcohol caffeine, energy drinks, smoking as all can contribute to reflux. ...Read more

What makes you tired after eating? I have GERD and asthma On 40 mg protonix (pantoprazole) 2 x day. Feeling weak and tired after eating and during the day. What itbe?

Not usually related: Feeling tired after eating isn't a common symptom or complaint. Eating a large meal can induce a feeling of sleepiness but if you feel this problem is out of the normal of what would be expected I would consult with your primary doctor in person. I don't think this is related to GERD or asthma. ...Read more
