Cannot breathe when I bend over

I have suffered severely with Heartburn for many years, that sometimes I could not speak from the burning in my throat and have felt like I was going to suffocate, and having a Panic attack at the same time, constantly am breathless, fatigued, and cannot carry anything with even the slightest bit of weight.

Can anyone give me any clues as to how I can relieve this nightmare illness?

    The trouble is these problems can be attributed to either anxiety, reflux or both - and each can be caused or worsened by the other! I suffer the same, do you get the good old feeling like something is stuck in your throat too? All very common with both. The key for all of it I think is try to deal with the anxiety side, that seems to be what makes it all so unbearable, once that lessens a little, it's surprising how it all follows

      Thankyou jmcg,

      Yes I agree I believe that they are both entwined, anxiety and acidity.

      But the breathless is frightening, and I also have no energy.

      Yes I have a sore throat off and on, and feel something is stuck.

      My doctors say it is COPD, because I cannot blow much into the Spiro meter, but I think it is because my Heartburn Acid has inflamed my mucous membranes and travelled into my throat and perhaps my Lungs.

      I have been researching on the computer for many months and I believe I have Severe Gerd, sometimes I feel, like I am suffocating.

      I take a sedative at night time, therefore most nights I can sleep but I may need one of the day now as well. I have just started to take Cider Vinegar, honey with a pinch of cinnamon, and praying that this mixture will help

      I hope that a mixture of Cider Vinegar, honey and a pinch of Cinnamon will help make my symtoms lessen and I can breathe properly again.

    I feel for you and hope you get some good results. Im a new sufferer but different symptoms and like you have been reading much of the onlne advice and experiences. Problem is there is so much contradiction out there yet there are people finding things that work. As long as you are sure what you try is not detrimental to you then grab that straw Im doing the very same. There must be natural alternatives out there to cure us.
