You do need to be talking to your Doctor. Hernias can cause havoc with breathing,but you need a professional opinion! xx
You definitely have gastric reflux and that can make breathing problems worse. The hiatus hernia will also be making things more difficult. The black swollen tongue, I have no idea about. You should see a doctor.
I have for many years had a problem with gastric reflux and have been prescribed Lansoprazole and Omeprazole and the problem went away. These are protein pump inhibitors and they stop the acid at source. I have seen comments that gastric acid that spills into airways can cause many respiratory problems.
I also have a enlarged tongue which causes Sleep Apnoea. But it is definitely not black and if it were I would be visiting the GP for an opinion quickly. I recently had a sore throat caused by a new inhaler and after it persisted for three weeks she put me an anti-biotic. This did not help so was sent for an immediate referral to an ENT specialist who gave me the all clear. It stopped hurting after another two weeks.
If you suspect that you might have COPD, speak to your GP and a Spiro-meter test will show whether or not you have COPD.
Hi I have Chrons and COPD I know you have said your tongue is not black but I have severe black tongue and thrush badly when I am on antibiotics. I have been the doctors twice this last fortnight with my mouth. As I am on antibiotics again he has given me a paste to protect my mouth really seems to work.
Go to the doctors you need his advice.
Hope you feel better soon.
