Hi. Does anyone with GERD has the experience of not being able to take a deep breath. I often feel that I need to take a deep breath. But most of the times I can't .

    yes I think a lot of us get that,I was told by a clinician that if you find taking a deep breath in difficult it is GERD, but if its a deep breath out you can't do its Asthma, that is why so many people get diagnosed with asthma when in fact they have gerd.

    It can also cause coughing and sinus problems.

    Yes! Since this GERD started...I havent felt like my breathing is normal. When I breath in my chest feels a bit heavy. That's the best way I can describe it. My doctor told me to drink mylanta after meals. It does seem to smooth me a bit but doesn't cure anything. I'm also trying to avoid too much sugar. Seems to be a real trigger for me. I was also told to take a higher dose of Nexium daily so I have been doing that for a month now. Doesn't seem to be getting rid of it. I plan to tell the doctor when I go back.

    This can deinately be associated with gerd. I had a test recently where it was identified that the acid was going into my lungs and up to my nasal passages. So maybe some further investigations into you problems would be an advantage to see what treatment options there are for you

    It could be vocal chord dysfunction. It mimics asthma. It's exacerbated by gerd or lpr. I have it and it's my main symptom.
