    Sometimes if you have acid in your esophagus, it can get in your lungs and affect your breathing. I recall that for many months before i knew i had reflux, i was having breathing symptoms that I convinced myself were due to allergies. Wrong!!!

    I had really bad GERD that eventually turned into Barrett's.  I had very similar symptoms, the feeling like you can't breathe can be very scary.  You may have a hiatal hernia as well which can cause those feelings.
