Yeah, it would make sense to be checked out for GERD, then. From what I have gathered, when food is in the stomach that's when the most acid is (obviously) going to be present to help break all the food down. And so if you have a lot of food in your stomach, you get more acid, which equates to more reflux symptoms. Which would explain why you get those symptoms when your stomach feels full...
I'm going this month to have an endoscopic exam for this very reason. I've also been checked out for everything else...The shortness of breath comes and goes, but I have noticed it seems worse when my stomach feels ful. It really tires me out, too.Good luck with yours.

I had 10 years of D along with GERD and a lifetime of apnea. I have used a couple of supplements since 1998 to stop the GI problems and the complete exhaustion that the IBS and apnea brought. I added a CPAP machine a year later to address the apnea. All of this has been a godsend. See your doctor to get a sleep study done. Apnea is not something to give up on.Good luck.Mark
...continu.Bloatedness, dull pain in upper stomach.constipation.even sleep apnea.when i am blocked,I have to gasp for air .I even get panic attacks as a result of all this .its really a vicious cycle.and it gets worse every time. I give up.

I am a 24 year old man who is in great physical shape. 5' 11 I weigh 165, after being hungover and throwing up violently I thought I hurt myself, but I was fine until 2 days afterward when I had this constant inability to take a deep breath, Although I have asthma my medicines do not help this at all. Been to dozens of doctors, went to a cardiologist- I have skipped beats when I underwent my stress test, but my heart is fine, I went to a gastroenterologist had an endoscopy and I was diagnosed with gastritis and erosions no hiatal hernia detected. It has been a month now with this and it is killing me. I cant do physical activity, doing anything is tough. I have a hard time breathing through my nose because of a deviated septum and it's hard to relax when I do get stressed about the breathing.My inability to take a deep breath occurs from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep, it stays constant regardless of body position and eating food. I would like some answers and any advice would be amazingDID You EVER find out what your problem was? are you still alive and struggling with it? Are you better?-A.J.
I have been having this horrible shortness of breath on and off for a year now. It started when I vomitted after a hang over. It was profuse vomitting. Really bad. I havent had a drink since. Anyway, the next morning i had this horrible shortness of breath. Really bad for this first month. It has gotten progressively better, but not much. I have seen allergists and pulmonologists. All found nothing. I went to see a GI doctor and he saw gastritis in my stomach from the endoscope. It was pretty bad. He described it as erosive. He put me on prilosec and zantac for 7 weeks. The next time he did and endoscopy the gastritis had healed, but still have the shortness of breath at times. It will come for a week then leave for a week. I exploained this to him, but he did not seem concerned. I have tried inhalers and allergy medication with no help. I wonder if the vomitting caused a hiatal hernia. Which is causing reflux to irritate my lungs. I have read of reflux giving shortness of breath. Has anyone experienced this. It is really horrible and any help would be appreciated. I have also seen a cardiologist and all was fine there.
