I suffer from extremely serious gerd . I was not following the correct diet & drinking entirely too much when I went to Vegas . The night before we left, I had extreme difficulty breathing, dizzy and couldn t stop belching . I was also taking a very strong antibiotic for a cold, and the walk in clinic that gave me the prescription said I could drink. The next morning I was In such bad shape my daughter took me to a clinic in clinic Vegas . Dr told me to stop antibiotic...way too strong, gave me a special cocktail for gerd , and did blood work which showed liver enzymes toohigh. I have since gone to my m.d. who sent me to hospital to have ultrasound on liver,gall bladder & pancreas also ct scan on lungs...all normal. I am still eating soft foods and now am strictly following gerd diet, but no one can seem to explain why I am still having shortness of breathe and dizziness. I have no energy , which is not me...just don t feel right since goneVegas episode. Please what should I do next? Thank you
