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 am female age perimenopause-recently had a period after two and half months. Daily experience of feeling bloated and look like I m pregnant(I am not), bowel changes include urgent need to move bowels several times during the day yet urgency doesn t match quantity-stools are soft to loose, often feel indigestion, bloat, occasional heartburn. My diet is relatively healthy, exercise 1-3 X s wk. Can t seem to beat the bloated, gassy feelings I experience daily. Have had gastritis in the past but didn t last this long, but I m not ruling it out either. Concerned symptoms may be a gastritis, food allergy/sensitivity, or perhaps a diverticulosis. Suzane
