My anxiety and gerd makes me feel like I can't breathe

I try to keep my anxiety down but sometime things that ache or certain pains that are sudden in my body sends me into full blown attacks because I swear something major is wrong. sometime I feel like I can't breathe right and I'm suffocating especially when I'm in heat or the shower.... does anyone else feel this way

I feel that a lot with my anxiety. I'm to intune with my body so every time I feel "different" i get anxious, heavy chest and feel like I'm suffocating I hate it... I just remind myself that I'm OK and breathe deep 3/4 times and think positive knowing it will pass

I got Gerd and more anxiety from taking Cipro--so avoid that and the related fluoroquinolone antibiotics because they can make those things a thousand times worse. I have found that taking a daily probiotic pill helps with Gerd as well.

I take a brand called Renew Life, which doesn't have to be refrigerated. They come in many strengths, and I take a pretty high one because I'm compromised after having taken Fluoroquinolones. They are not cheap, but it's worth it and does a lot for general health.
