I recently started feeling a fullness in my stomach, accompanied by the feeling of needing to burp (and not always burping) along with some trouble breathing (feeling as if I need to inhale deeply to get full breaths). Also I seem to be yawning alot but my sleeping patterns have not changed (sleep about 7-9 hours a day all through the night). Before this started I have been eating alot of spicy food and thought that information may be important.
