The Relationship Of Stomach Acid And Feels Incomplete When Breathing?
want to ask, it’s been 3 days I feel suffocated, my breathing feels short / not as relieved as usual, I’ve been to the doctor but only given shortness of medicine, the medicine is now gone but there is no change, I feel hard to breathe, feel like there is phlegm in my throat, and feeling uncomfortable nose, is it congested because of stomach acid?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Shortness of breath can be caused by a variety of possibilities, including:
lung disorders, for example lung infections (pneumonia), bronchitis, pulmonary tuberculosis, pleural effusion, pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, pneumothorax, pulmonary hypertension, asthma, COPD, etc. disorders of the heart, for example heart failure, heart attack, tamponade heart, heart valve disorders, cardiomyopathy, etc. other disorders such as hiatal hernias, severe anemia or heavy blood loss in a short time, hypotension, poisoning of certain substances, blockages in the airway (eg due to choking, severe allergic reactions), mental disorders (such as anxiety excessive, panic attacks, etc.) Acid reflux disease can sometimes cause discomfort in the chest area, but the feeling is usually more described as pain or burning like burning in the chest. This pain can sometimes cause discomfort when breathing, but it is usually not referred to as shortness of breath.
To find out exactly the cause of shortness of breath, you should do a doctor's examination again. You can do a doctor's examination in internal medicine so that further evaluation can be carried out (including doing additional examinations such as chest X-ray, ECG, or other tests needed). For now, there are a few things you can try to do:
Try to reduce stress and be more relaxed Do deep breathing exercises routinely Use air humidifiers or humidifiers in your bedroom Clean all potential allergens in your home (such as dust, animal dander, etc.) Avoid smoking and exposure to other airway irritants (eg air pollution excess, certain chemicals)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
