My acid reflux problem is causing me many issues. I went to see the gastoenterologist yesterday and I was instructed to take nexium 24 hour for 8 weeks until I go see him again. I just woke up with a feeling that I csnt take a deep breath. I know that our bodies tske shallow breaths at rest, but for some reason I always worry about this symptom. Like why is it waking me up and its uncomfortable. I think I need to beming my weight back down to 150-55 range. Right now I'm in the 165-70 range. I didn't workout all of last week and I piggies out during the weekend. Acid reflux can really make one feel miserable.
