New kind of shortness of breath - now with bloatness
« on: June 08, 2014, 07:57:17 PM »
When I first started having anxiety issues, I had a well known to all of you symptom, the shortness of breath.
I could breath quickly and deeply and feel "air hungry" as if there wasn't enough air and oxygen on earth for me.

When I learned more about anxiety and panic attacks, and understoon that it isnt going to kill me,
(of course I went to the doctor and had checks done)
I just started riding it out, letting it pass.. but sometimes I had whole days I needed to time my breathing to not hyperventilate.
And it went away..

Now its back, and its different.

I get shortness of breath but my stomach is all bloated, it tends to happen after I eat.
I feel so bloated I can't take a deep breath like I used to.
When I try I can feel my diaphragm pushing against my stomach.
I get up and stretch my body reaching with my hands, that makes me feel I can take more air in.
Any advice?

Thank you for reading ;*)

Bloating in your stomach can cause shortness of breath. Acid reflux, or simply gas, can cause it. Try antacids, and see if they help :)

I definitely know what this feels like! Try mixing like 1/2 tsp of baking soda with some warm water and drink it (or tums work also). Works great for me!

Easiest way to deal with it is eliminate foods which can cause acid reflux.
