Acid Reflux

Does anyone else have a hard time taking a deep breath in when their acid reflux is acting up? Maybe that's just me. My acid reflux always makes my throat feel tight and irritated. I never feel it in my chest, it's always in my upper back and throat.

    Hi Dev

    I too have this problem , it feels as though not enough air is being taken in and I also have the lump in throat feeling nearly all the time. I have been suffering with Acid Reflux/GERD for over 2 years now. Most of the time I cope OK but every now and then it gets the better of me and then Anxiety steps in which makes it worse.

    All the best

      Thanks for your reply Robin! I know how it is when anxiety steps in. Anxiety is a terrible thing, definitely plays tricks on you and your body sad

    Google vocal cord dysfunction, it's common with GERD/LPR.

    Cutting out acidic foods like tomatoes, citrus fruits, garlic, chocolate might help too

      Thank you for your reply! I will look into the vocal cord dysfunction. I have tried cutting a lot of those foods from my diet and eating more healthier than I did. But I cannot lie, I am weak for chocolate and garlic-y foods and I've noticed those two are the most irritable foods for me sad
