What is the cause of shortness of breath and feeling of lump in the throat in one with a history of duodenal ulcers ?

hello 2 weeks ago i started to have slight asthma symptoms (i live in an area with a lot of cedar trees which are pollenating) felt like i couldn t catch my breath. after a couple of days it stopped, but then i have this feeling like there is a lump in my throat all the time (except when i eat) accompanied by a lot of tiny burps. not painful, exactly, but uncomfortable. I especially worry because I have a history of duodenal ulcers caused by h. pylorii and bad acid reflux . I am taking a round of Prilosec but it is not really helping. Im 27, eat pretty healthy and dont drink a whole lot or smoke cigarettes. Wondering if i should be worried about a possible tumor? I dont have health insurance so dont want to shell out the money if they are just going to put me on more prilosec or nexium .

Hi,Thanks for query,
it seems that you might have some allergy to as you said Cedar trees where you stay.Allergens produced by trees may give you allergy and some swelling in your throat giving you asthma type effect.
You make note that whether this problem is there if you are out of your town for few days.
If you feel better when you are away from your present atmosphere then it is confirmed that you may have allergy to cedar trees.
Another possibility is that due to duodenal ulcer and acid reflux you may get this type of sensation.
Ok and bye.
