LPR: Lpr may worsen subjective symptoms of asthma but not the lung function based on a cochrane review. If you have sob within 5 mins after exertion, then your problem may be from vocal cord dysfunction which can be triggered by lpr.

Why LPR reflux causes breathlessness  my all repoets are normal echo pft xray thyroid cbp m not overweight?

I have been having severe constipation issues since the end of August in addtion to LPR reflux symptoms.  In mid October, I was prescibed Nexium and Zantac and I switched to a low fat low acid diet.  I also eliminated dairy as I knew it caused constipatio

Constipation: Switching to protonix instead of nexium (esomeprazole) may stimulate your bowels. Taking zantac at the same time is unnecessary. To promote bowel movements drink adequate fluids including hot water((not too hot), include fiber in your diet and try a daily dose of senokot as a stimulant. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more

Doubt reflux: This could be some emotional reaction, also could be something idiosyncratic, i.e. A symptom you have which can't be explained in terms of conventional medical understanding.
