Can indigestion/acid reflux cause chest tightness & feeling like I cant take a deep breath/shortness of breath?
Unlikely : It's possible, but much less likely than other causes. In general, the chest pain you describe in your age group is more likely to be musculoskeletal (strain or inflammation) or respiratory (viral pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma). However, it could be cardiac or even GI related. You should contact your doctor immediately or go to the closest urgent care/ER if you're having breathing problems. ...Read more
Had a sharp pain n tightness in chest it went up 2 my shoulder made me throw up. Shortness of breath.now my chest hurts wen I try 2 take a deep breath?
SOB: You are a young female. What you are describing is something described as pleurtic chest pain. This being cardiac in origin would be unlikely.

Why am i still having trouble breathing about 2 hours after my run? The run felt pretty good. Chest is tight and having a hard time taking deep breath
For 2 1/2 weeks had sinusitis and bronchitis. Finished z pack. Saw pcp wed and was told my lungs were clear. Still bringing up mucous, though clear. Today chest feels tight and I have mild pain in heart area when taking deep breath. I do have mild asthma.
Hard to say: If wheezing and short of breath - maybe, but you should be seen by your doctor for another evaluation asap. Btw, z-pack is great for bronchitis but worthless for sinusitis however, since 98% of all sinusitis is viral related, it probably makes no difference for your recovery time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
