    Hey again,

    I have been having breathing trouble, constant clearing of throat,hoarseness, etc. I am trying to figure out what this is! Can gerd cause you to have trouble breathing?

    I believe I have Gerd because my stomach burns a lot, but I never have acid come up my throat, and I never have a sore throat.I took nexium for 2 months, didn't help.

    I felt pretty icky this morning as usual, I laid down for a liitle while because I felt the tightness in my chest, after just about 30 minutes I get this sensation in my throat like its closing or something and CANNOT clear my throat. It sort of feels like if I can clear it then I could breathe.

    Anyone else have this?

    and I get acid reflux sometimes things can set it off like a fatty diet or meds I dont get anything else you have described perhaps a visit to the doctors is needed.

    I have had GERD for my whole life. I have never had any of the symptoms you are describing. Perhaps you should tell your doctor about these symptoms.
