Long story very short, I am on an extremely limited diet as I have had debilitating IBS and GERD for many years that left me in misery. I have very few foods I can eat comfortably but now, after a few years of being fine on this diet, I am getting what I think are symptoms of silent reflux.
I do not really have flatulence but do get gas that seems to be trapped. If I position my body a certain way during these times, I can feel and hear the air bubbles leaking up. Pretty weird. Also I can make myself burp but it doesnt seem to relieve anything most of the time.
My biggest symptom is a feeling and inability to catch a deep breath. I yawn all the time trying to catch a deep satisfying breath. If I eat anything bad (chips) this sensation gets worse but it happens after eating anything. This morning I ate homemade turkey broth and got it!!!!
It is bothering me a great deal. My doctor recommended Zantac but I do not want to be relying on medications. I will be buying some the next time I go to town as I am desperate.
Does anyone else have this symptom? Were you able to 'fix' it? I find the difficulty breathing gets a bit better once food has been digested and SOMETIMES (Not all the time) it helps to get up and get moving.
I am grateful I do not have my old reflux symptoms, which was awful heartburn, chest pains, acid burps, sulfur burps, even worse difficulty breathing, etc but this is concerning as well because I don't see how I can improve my diet further to stop this happening.
