Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. First of all, we are sorry to hear about your mother's condition. Heartburn or abdominal pain which is a symptom of the digestive system and shortness of breath which is a symptom of the respiratory system, indeed have a common thread in stomach acid disorders, so this is the basis for your doctor to give stomach medicine to your mother.
But of course, that doesn't mean there aren't other possibilities that can describe your mother's condition. One of them is if in fact the conditions experienced by your mother are two or more conditions that occur simultaneously or at least close together, for example, an injury to the intestine that causes pain in the form of heartburn and nausea, then this pain triggers asthma, causing coughing and shortness of breath, it could be.
So for the possibility of your mother's illness, the range is very wide, including:
Psychological or mental problems Perimenopausal conditions Infections Gastrointestinal ulcers Autoimmune disorders Ovarian cysts Symptoms of malignancy
Our advice, because your mother's condition has been going on for a long time, first check your mother's digestive tract by asking for an ultrasound or endoscopy to an internal medicine specialist or a digestive surgeon. If after a structural check there are no abnormalities, then try asking your mother to dig deeper into her feelings, whether there is something she is holding back, problems or other fears. Is there a feeling of loneliness or something, because mental problems can indeed be channeled in the form of physical disturbances. Limit your mother's physical activity, get plenty of rest and teach her to do deep breathing techniques by breathing in through the nose and out slowly through the mouth. Hope your mother gets well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
