Horrible Shortness of Breath

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hey guys, does anyone else have severe shortness of breath with gastric symptoms? I have gerd but take Nexium even with no burning I still belch up food and feel like I'm so short of breath all the time. It's miserable. I burp constantly also.

    HI, check for relief of hiatal hernia on youtube. That helped me a lot with my shortness of breath. My stomach and belly was so tight that I totally was breathing wrong and contracting my abs all the time. I learned new breathing techniques and massages, also to press trigger points in my belly to relief tightness. It really helps - if you have hiatal hernia or not... you should check it out.

    If nexium was that dangerous causing kindney and l8ver failure and deaths it would not have been approved. Its been available for years it would have been banned. Taking medication unsupervised is wrong.
