Does anyone else have bloating and gas, especially when your breathing is bad? Inhalers only help a little. I’m on 3 of them.
I was originally diagnosed with asthma and told cigarettes did not cause my problem. (I did not really believe this doctor, but got a second opinion where the second doctor had assistant do a breath test and then agreed with asthma. 🤨) I’ve always had dogs, cats, etc. and never had a breathing problem until about 10 years ago (I’m 63 now), and then only upon exertion.
Later, lungs showed signs of emphysema. Now my records indicate asthma, emphysema and COPD.
In the meantime, I’m always bloated and full of gas, sometimes bad stomach pains. Gasterologist did endoscopy and declared gastritis. Gave me pills that do nothing. Then changed it to more pills that do nothing.
Nodules in lungs, nodules in thyroid, nodules in pancreas, etc.
I’m not getting very far with doctors who simply sit in front of a computer, type in symptoms, and pop out a prescription.
I believe my gut problem and exacerbated breathing problem are related (although I do believe I have a slight lung problem, but that it is exacerbated by some other issue). Not at all sure what I actually suffer from.
I made an appointment with a dietician, hoping I might get someone with a curious mind who will actually investigate my symptoms.
Anyone else have gut problems along with breathing issues?
