Hello Muhammad Rezqi, Thank you for the question.
Symptoms of shortness of breath can indeed be caused by several health conditions and not always due to interference with the respiratory system. To find out the cause more information is needed about the symptoms of shortness of breath such as triggers shortness of breath, things that relieve shortness of breath, other symptoms that accompany shortness of breath such as chest pain, coughing, fever, weight loss, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, belching, reflux sour, the mouth feels bitter, the taste stuck in the throat, and others. The following are some of the causes of shortness of breath:
disorders of the respiratory system: asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, tuberculosis disorders of the digestive tract: gastric acid disease disorders of heart function disorders of liver function disorders of kidney function anxiety disorders If further examination of your wife's lungs is done and nothing is found any abnormality is not a problem in the lungs. From the story that you convey may indeed be related to disorders of the digestive tract, namely stomach acid. You might consider inviting your wife to see another internal medicine specialist (specializing in gastroenterology) to ask for other opinions about your wife's condition by bringing the results of the examination so far. The doctor will return to interview your wife, examine your wife, and conduct additional examinations if needed. Only by a doctor's examination can the cause be identified and appropriate treatment determined.
In addition to taking medicines regularly, encourage your wife to modify your lifestyle as well:
avoiding consumption of food in large portions should be in small portions but more often avoid the consumption of spicy, sour, oily foods avoid consumption of caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks avoid lying down after eating food consumption at the latest 3 hours before going to bed at night sleeping with pillow position rather high lowering weight if you have excessive body weight manage stress well avoid smoking habits avoid exposure to dust, other air pollution, and trigger allergies if there are symptoms of shortness of breath (short and fast breathing) or vomiting of blood, please take your wife to the hospital emergency room closest to receiving treatment immediately.
I hope this helps.
