Can the symptoms of acid reflux be similar to copd ie shortness of breath chest discomfort burping?

Acid reflux: Symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest discomfort, and burping. These symptoms are more similar to those experienced due to heart disease (angina, heart attack) than to symptoms of COPD. There may be some overlap with symptoms from all three conditions. If a person is unsure about what may be causing these type of symptoms, there should be a medical workup to determine the origin.

I have a puss spot in the back of my throat and shortness of breath? I also burp when and after I eat or drink water.

I have a puss spot in the back of my throat and shortness of breath? I also burp when and after I eat or drink water.

Upper airway/gi prob: Pus spot in back of throat could be infection, but if have no sore throat, probably is build-up of food/bacterial debris that gets packed into the crypts of the tongue and lymph nodes. Shortness of breath is serious and needs to be checked out. Burping after eating or drinking usually is some type of maldigestion, and reflux of acid or gas into the esophagus. C your pmd, especially due to sob.

Why does my GERD attacks during night? Mostly 7pm onwards? Feeling gas trapped in ny throat, weakness, shortness of breath. Burping will relieved symptoms

Night GERD attacks: You have greater symptoms of gerd at night as you as lying in pain, normally in a supine position. If you are consistently taking drugs similar to Prilosec (p), you should be symptom free with daily dosing. You may have severe gerd and my need to take twice a day. Speak to your physician about your problem.

Shortness of breath in pregnancy and frequent burping?

Shortness of breath in pregnancy and frequent burping?

Common: Common during pregnancy. You need more oxygen during pregnancy and the body adapts to this. Also as the growing baby/uterus pushes against your diaphragm (muscle of breathing) your breathing might feel more labored. Burping occurs because the hormones in your body relax the muscles of the GI tract, causing more gas and bloating resulting in frequent burping. Both reverse after delivery.

I'm burping continiouslyand im pregnant and im having shortness of breath?

I'm burping continiouslyand im pregnant and im having shortness of breath?

May be normal: The intestines slow down during pregnancy and you get more gas. Bloating, burping and passing gas are common in pregnancy. Shortness of breath normally occurs in the third trimester from the uterus decreasing the amount of lung expansion that occurs when you breathe. If earlier in pregnancy though, you might get checked for other lung or heart problems.

For a few months, I have been experiencing shortness of breath, more when I am sitting or lying down (improved by exercise) and frequent forced burping with occasional acid reflux. Could all of this be caused by reflux or is it more serious?

For a few months, I have been experiencing shortness of breath, more when I am sitting or lying down (improved by exercise) and frequent forced burping with occasional acid reflux. Could all of this be caused by reflux or is it more serious?

Without ↑information: & detective work, impossible to say at a distance. Yet your theory (you're the only one who can perceive your symptoms) does make sense & you demonstrate an understanding of basics of differential diagnosis methodology. Like everyone, you are your own primary medical decision maker (physician if you will), regardless how competent, or not. Be ware, reflux, long term, does drive esophageal cancer.

Can UTI cause burping and shortness of breath?

UTI: Unlikely to produce these symptoms, assuming this is lower urinary tract infection. If you have upper tract infection you should be seen by a doctor immediately. Sounds like something else is going on and it would be helpful to be fully evaluated.

Why do you have shortness of breath when your GERD attacks? Why you need to burp to feel relieved?

The irritation: Of the esophagus and refluxing of acid into your air tubes can cause a shortness of breath like sensation. Often, burping relieves the pressure in the stomach, which improves the reflux. Hope this helps!

Shortness of breath, burning sensation and pains across the chest, a lot of burps and fatigue?

Shortness of breath, burning sensation and pains across the chest, a lot of burps and fatigue?

This is a lot & not: Sounds like asthma + acid reflux. But a much more complete history (and physical) is need. If you drink coffee (regular & decaf) or eat sweets, i'd suggest you stop those for now to see if there is benefit. You will enjoy our website www. Thepmc. Org.

Check on chest pain: Chest pain is nothing to ignore! The potential origin of your symptoms includes: heart, lungs, mediastinum, esophagus, musculoskeletal, pericardium (sac around the heart), pleuritis, bronchiitis, or referred pain from a remote site. Your doctor will be concerned about accompanying fever, blood with coughing, vomiting, shortness or breath, difficulty reclining, tenderness. Get checked ASAP please.

I have no acid reflux symptoms except for I can burp nonstop. Recently I've noticed a sensation of shortness of breath. Hiatal hernia??

GERD: The belching and substernal symptoms with shortness of breath are findings seen in many cases of reflex esophagitis and hiatal hernia. Inflammation of lower esophagus is frequently associated with shortness of breath due to substernal extension of the inflammation. Omeprazole is used to treat these symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux.
