Im 17 years old and ever since I was 10 I started to throw up the grease in my food, which progressively led to throwing up all my food. Recently, Ive been experiencing problems with breathing which essentially feels like there is air escaping my throat from somewhere, it has become so bad Im not able to lay down to sleep i have to sit up, and swallowing is also painful. I also had to go to the ER the first time i started noticing the breathing problems only to have the doctor tell me I was having a panic attack, which I dont think is accurate. Does anyone have any suggestions to what is causing this?

    Maybe it's? acid getting into your lungs? Are you on any medication for the throwing up? I think ranitidine stops regurgitation if your able to stop the food coming up your breathing will get time to heal

      Everytime I go to the doctor Im prescribed omeprozole but it has never stopped the food from coming up so i have stopped taking it. Thanks for the recommendation I will try this next.

    I don't have any ideas about your problem Claudia, sounds like you may have a hiatus hernia but I suggest seeing a gastro specialist.

    hope you improve...xx

      Good luck hope your appointment goes well, and I find omeprazole stops stomach burning and heartburn but ranitidine stops vomitting so you may need to be on both
