Is it because of Asthma that I feel breathless and nausea ?

Hello, I have been diagnosed with Asthma two years ago. Recently I have been feeling breathless, nauseated , no proper appetite to eat also . My GP said that i am suffering from indigestion and prescribed my lansoprazole for two months. Could the breathlessness be the result of asthma starting again or could it just be acid reflux?

Hi welcome to Healthcare Magic

By the above history loss of appetite and nausea suggestive of gastritis... avoid spicy foods, coffee, tea, chocolates, .. good sleep is necessary... but for breathlessness you need to be examined clinically...

Thanks for the instant reply.. I havent had any relief from using the Lansoprazole tablets. Could I also take Rabicip - 20 mg in addition to the Lansoprazole tablet? Will ther be any side effects of using both?

i am feeling breathless condition from last two day?2 days before i was cold.. right now i am feeling breathlessness

doctor1 MD

I wake up at least once a week early in the morning throwing up/nausea which is a very queasy feeling along with hot flashes. I visit my primary care physician regularly. I have anemia and low hemoglobin, as well as athletic induced asthma besides this nausea those are the only problems I have ever been diagnosed with besides depression. The causes are unknown of both. Also I am not over weight, and I am a Caucasian white female in my teens if that matters. I have high amounts of stomach acid. I take an antacid twice a day but I still wake up sick. I often feel bloated, even when I haven t eaten anything and it is usually followed by a cramping pain in my abdomen. My regurgitation frequencies fluctuate, it started two years ago and was awful but last year I had no noticeable problems or nausea and now this year it is back. It is hard to go about my day when I start it off sick. I have an appointment with a GI next month. He will be performing a EGD to try to figure out what s going on inside of me. I d like to have a general idea of what to expect. Do you have any thoughts of what could be causing this?

Hi, I started with breathing problems on Friday night and continued to be breathless all weekend. It was like an asthma attack but felt different. I have asthma and I know it was not an attack as I ve had them before and been hospitalized and the last time was approx 4/5 years ago. My breathless has settled but I now have a different symptom. I feel like there is something there but can t cough up, it s as if the muscus I should bring up is stuck inside my lung. My cough sounds do different also. I m not coughing all the time but as a smoker I always bring up at least a tiny amount which is very normal for me but that s not happening even though I can here/feel a small rattle now and again. I also have a cold feeling in my lungs when I m breathing. Hope this makes sense. I m a nurse but this might not come across as educated but there s no other way to explain it. Help

I have been suffering from indigestion, bloating after eating and a mild IBS and have been using prebiotics and probiotics for the last over a year. It did not prove effective and my condition continues. It will be much appreciated if you would be good enough to prescribe some supplements which could be available in U.K. I live in London.

35 yr-old male, police officer, overall good health.

I'm reporting chronic dyspepsia. More precisely noisy gurgling and rumbling that seems to be coming from my stomach, loud gastric noises. Probably worst 20 minutes after lunch and dinner. Its a semi-constant discomfort.

It has been a constant problems for years.

Two or three years ago I was tested to have H. Pylori after a blood test after a routine police medical exam. I took the medication regime prescribed. During the treatment, it did not seem to really help. However, at the end of treatment, I was free of gastric discomfort for abt 4 months. I was so happy. Then, it slowly came back insidusly.
Lately, it seems to be coming back even stronger. Stress and poor sleeping patterns seems aggravate it.
I just realize that its worst if I sleep on the left side.
Food releaves sympstoms until discomfort starts.
Ranitidine appears somewhat effective. But I don't like to take medications without knowing what exactly I have.
Anti-Acid not so effective.

I take:
Only take about 25 pills ranitidine per year.
200 anti-acid a year (Magnesium/calcium)
I take about 20 pills of NSAID /year
Does not eat bad food more than 2 times a week. Eat well to very well.

What do you think is my problem?
