Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi,

I am new here. I have had reflux problems on and off for 2-3 years.

Recently for about a month now I have been having lots of burping all through the day. At the beginning of the month I was having shortness of breath during the day and at night too. I went to the GI and he changed my medication from 20 mg Omeprazole in morning to 60 mg Dexilant and I continued taking the 20 mg Omeprazole in evening and 75mg Zantac before bedtime.

Its been 3 weeks since I started the Dexilant ,now I am burping the whole day and at night this is accompanied by shortness of breath sometimes severe. I feel like I will pass out or that someone is smothering me. Yesterday night I had one of these moments. I was not able to catch my breath for a long time and had to take 3 - 1000 mg tums and 60 mg Dexilant to mange the symptoms. After that the shortness went away but burps continued.

I have never had breathing issues with reflux before. I am 5 weeks pregnant and really concerned of how this will affect me in the later trimesters. To top it off I have mitral stenosis and have had a procedure for that and it has been taken care of but the burps and shortness makes my heart rate and blood pressure go up so it indirectly affects my heart issue.

HAS ANYONE BEEN IN THE SAME BOAT-BURPING AND SHORTNESS oF BREATH. WHAT HELPED YOU MANAGE IT.
