Causes Shortness Of Breath When Lying Down?
Hello … Sorry, doctor, I want to ask. I have a bad habit of being late for breakfast until noon. And the last 3 days I often experience shortness of breath when lying down. Are these symptoms caused by my stomach acid? And sorry before I also took a multivitamin to enhance immunity, is this also because of these factors? For the answer, I thank you.
