Possible hiatal hernia
Your symptoms may indicate specific condition called hiatal hernia and this means that stomach is protruding through diaphragm muscle. It may cause breathing difficulties,nausea, swallowing difficultires and irritation of stomach.
To diagnose it you should do gastroscopy and contrast xrays of stomach.
It will also be aggravated by certain food or medications, stress and smoking. You need to avoid fried food, carbonated drinks, coffee, alcohol and spicy food. You should eat more milk products, vegetables and boiled food.
Also, certain antiacid medications may be required and as last option, it is possible to perform surgical repair of hernia especially if there are progressive respiratory discomfort and pain.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
