Symptoms Of Shortness Of Breath And Dizziness With A History Of Heartburn And Sinusitis?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition of the sinus cavities that can occur due to a bacterial or viral infection. Ulcer disease is a disease of increased levels of stomach acid that can occur due to spicy, oily food and late eating, and bronchitis itself is an inflammation of one of the respiratory structures, namely the bronchi.
The symptoms of shortness of breath and dizziness that you have experienced so far alone can be caused by various things, including:
Respiratory disorders. Like asthma, bronchitis or pneumonia, one of the symptoms is shortness of breath. Stomach disorders. Rising stomach acid as in the case of GERD and ulcers can cause symptoms in the form of pain, chest heat, nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath. Heart disorders. A weak heart condition makes blood circulation not optimal, thereby reducing the flow of oxygen to body tissues which makes a person short of breath. Mental disorders. Certain thought disorders such as phobias, panic attacks, OCD or others, can make a person feel palpitated, short of breath, cold sweats, although when examined, no physical abnormalities were found.
In your case, among the possibilities above, the tendency is indeed a history of gastric disorders that you have that contribute to the symptoms of shortness of breath that you experience. If you have consulted a doctor, you may have had an examination using a stethoscope especially on the chest to rule out lung disorders, a heart record or ECG to rule out heart problems, and maybe even a chest X-ray until your doctor finally concluded that your disorder is centered in stomach.
What you need to understand besides the fact that stomach acid can indeed cause symptoms as you describe, is that stomach acid disorders can arise due to various things, including stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, late eating, consumption of acidic, oily, spicy foods, caffeinated beverages such as coffee, and anxiety.
So with the many activities that you do, it is very natural for your doctor to consider this condition as the problem. So in addition to taking the drugs prescribed by your doctor as recommended, avoid the risk factors for rising stomach acid as we stated above. Drink plenty of water and consume vegetables and fruit, exercise regularly and avoid cigarette smoke. If your complaint still persists even though you have reduced your activities and adopted a healthy lifestyle, check again with your doctor, especially an internal medicine specialist for further analysis of your condition. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
