    When the stomach area is very bloated it can make breathing more difficult because it presses against your lower chest area. This happens to me and at first would cause anxiety. Try over the counter remedies like kaopectate and see how that works. You might have to adjust something in your diet. Try gas x and see if you get results. Hope you get well.

      I don't have any food allergies but dairy products seem to make it worse, I also get what feels like something caught in my throat even though nothing is there

    Also take deep breaths. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth for anxiety. Will work and please see your doctor.
