hiatal hernia
I found this video and believe that this hiatal hernia could be the culprit of many of my ailments including acid reflux, bronchitis, and chronic fatigue, and many other symtoms mentioned in these videos:
was able to pull on my own stomach, but I am a trained therapist. If you have the intuition to massage your own stomach I recommend it, it gave me a great release, and elimintaed my popping noises. in my throat.

popping bubble sound
I have popping bubble sound from my throat & recently coughing a lot. I thought it was from my excessive coughing, but since I was sick (mostly coughing) for 1 1/2 week, I went to see my Dr. They ordered an X-Ray, Blood lab and found that my right lung has water in it called "Pleural Effusion" that where the popping and bubble sound came from.

I then got a CT Scan done and confirmed the same thing. I will see a Pulmonary Specialist soon.

I have the same thing. Sitting upright there is no sound. But within 30 seconds of laying down the popping/crackling sounds start along with the wheezing at the end of an exhale. I see a lot of people complaining of the same sypmtom but has anyone found a cure?

These symptoms described here are produced by aspirated refluxate.

Small droplets of liquid or mucous in the fine capillaries of the lungs can "pop" or produce wheezing etc. as they are moved by inhalation and expiration.

There is no effective medication for this - just the lifestyle advice for reducing reflux:
To reduce thereflux, you may have to make lifestyle changes:
- Lose weight if applicable
- Stop smoking if applicable
- Reduce alcohol consumption
- Avoid tight clothing
- Avoid bending or any exercise that will compress the stomach after eating
- Eat smaller portions - more frequently
- Leave at least three hours before your last meal and going to bed
- Raise the head of your bed 6 to 8 inches on blocks

If you are unable to manage your reflux by following these steps, your other option may be to consider surgery - a fundoplication or the new LINX procedure.

All the best

fizzing and popping when exhaling
I'm wondering the same thing because it can keep me up at night for hours. And mine also happens with a lot of weezing sounds. It sounds like rice krispies popping in your breakfast bowl. It can fizz and pop like pop rocks too. For me it's only when I exhale. When I exhale and hold my breath I can hear it really good and feel the popping in my throat. I think this is so weird. I only have mild heart burn problems and only once in a while and when this happens I dont have any heart burn so I dont know what to blame it on. I heard in a different discussion this same sound can happen when you have edema in the lungs. And since my oxygen levels went way down I am wondering if it is heart burn at all and not something more serious like pulmonary edema.
