Brief Answer: probably related to gastritis Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I am sorry about your current health condition. Your problem is more likely related to your regular gastric problem. However, if this is on-going for long term,we should not ignore it. In such a case, I suggest that you take a plain x-ray of the chest and electrocardiogram of the heart to make sure that your lungs and heart is normal. I hope you are on regular medications for the gastritis. I suggest that you do regular deep breathing exercises, and drink plenty of fluids orally. This is not a serious medical condition. You can get over it soon. Please follow my suggestions. Get well soon. Regards,
