Bloated feeling in diaphragm, heart palpitations, difficulty breathing. History of asthma, diabetes. Treatment?

Hi, I m 31 years old relatively healthy, I have asthma and diabetes . No medication for the diabetes, just treated with diet. Recently I have had tightness and a bloated/full feeling in my diagphram. Along with that I ve had wind, mainly burping and heart palpatations. The palpatations are daily, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, generally after i have eaten and go as quick as they come. I ve also noted at the time my diagphram has this full feeling, my breathing becomes a bit more shallow. I have no pain anywhere, just discomfort and concerned about the heart palpatations

Pulmonologist 's  Response

You seem to be suffering from Asthma with diabetes. You need to take your asthma medications regularly and get it evaluated at routine intervals from a pulmonologist. Your abdominal complaints could be due to a condition of diabetic gastroparesis. You can take antacids like Tb PAN D for symptomatic relief once in the morning on empty stomach. I would suggest you do a repeat blood sugar fasting and post meal levels along with gycosylated HbA1c levels for your current diabetes status. Also an ECG and stress test need to be done for the palpitations. Thus you need to get yourself re evaluated at present as mentioned above and get managed accordingly. I suggest you visit your doctor and get evaluated as advised above in consultation with a diabetologist and a cardiologist if required.
