Hi all, My names Nancie, heres my story...

3 years ago I had an "incident" Oain in chest, all of my insides were spasming, my chest closed in and I had a hard time breathing..trying to breath through Pain is no fun, no position helps, gasping for air sucks, it really does. Then after 15-20 minutes I vomit and all of a sudden my airway opens and I feel myself able to breath again, and about 10 minutes after that my insides feel better. Weird huh..well That happened and 5 months later i had it for a week straight everyday like 2-3 times a day..In and out of hospitals etc.. Get tested ..they think its my gallbladder ( since it was in bad shape) so I get it removed..Nothing happens for 3 years and BOOM Yesterday same thing happens, Chest gets sore ( although i had heartburn and acid indeigestion all week, i get that all the time anyway) My breathing is hard, my lips go purple. face white, feverish and trying to breath...I though the gallbladder cured this, but it didn't.

Now I am think serious ACID REFLUX..SEVERE!! Do what ..DO I need to go on pills, Is this like 3 years all over again, I am so upset, scared etc..

But i do know Once I VOMIT, my airways open up again and I can slowly breath better...Has this happened to anyone else?

Please let me know, cause no one seems to write about the "vomit" part when I read about Acid Relfux. I know when I am having a Sever Adic Reflux attack that Vomitting does relieve me.

This pain is like being punched your hardest in the chest ( like having the wind knocked outta ya) and having to find your breath, it really is scary.

So please write if we are kinda alike, Thanks
Nancy

I have not actually vomited. But, the acid from the stomach does come up into your throat and can come out your mouth. That has happend a lot to me. But, never really vomitiing. I would advise you to take to your doctor about this and maybe have some tests done on your digestive system. Can't hurt ya know.

Me too!!!
I have SEVERE acid reflux and I throw up too. I experience the same symptoms as you. The pain in the chest, the difficulty breathing and inevitable vomiting. My only difference is that it only occurs during my menstrual period. Weird!! Have you seen a doctor about it? Have you gotten any relief?

Acid Reflux and Vomiting
Hello,

Have you ever tried drinking aloe juice? The great thing about aloe is it helps to heal the damaged lining of the esophagus and stomach. Also don't forget it is natural. Aloe has been used for a very long time to heal various ailments. I have alot of testimonies on aloe and how it helps with acid reflux. Feel free to contact me and I will be glad to help

I have severe acid reflux and a hiatal hernia and I get very ill at times and throw-up because of it. If this is what you have, there are medications available that can help alleviate the severity of your symptoms.

Hello

Most any illness or disease is most likely caused from the lack of proper nutrients in your body. A good nutritional program can usually reverse all kinds of ailments.

I am involved in such a program and I can put you in touch with someone I personally know who had the same illness as you. Before you go to your doctor about your health problem and he puts you on a prescription drug, let me
encourage you to spend the time talking to someone who has the same ailment
as you and reversed their health condition. Believe me, you will be glad you did.

SEVERE acid reflux
I am experiencing similar symptoms except I have yet to throw up...though I think it would be a major relief. I am experiencing it 2 - 3 times a day. Initially, my chest begins to hurt and quickly gets severe, then, I can literally feel the acid moving upward and at this point, my mouth produces loads of saliva, like it would if I am gonna vomit. If I am lucky, I will have a slight burp, though I am trying hard to create a bigger burp and then, after a couple of minutes, it starts over again. My throat is burnt and pains most of the time. I am going to have to go to the doctor, because this is BEYOND miserable.

Gulp a table spoon of apple cidar vinegar, or any type of vinegar; that helps alleviate acid reflux, in most cases; your body is lacking acid.

I have the same issue. I have been trying to get answers as well. The other night, and not the first time, I went to lay down for bed. I was somewhat hurting but as it got later the pain got worse. I try to fix my pillows so that I can be lying in the incline position, no help. So I got up and went to down some tums. All of the sudden my chest begins to hurt as if someone has laid a ton of bricks on it. I was in so much pain and you seriously think you are going to die. And at the same time I was super nautious and hot/sweaty. Then I finally went in the bathroom and threw up. The pain stopped and I was able to go to bed. But of course later I started hurting again. Just not as bad. And by the way, I had my gall bladder removed over a year ago too. I would love to find out what is going on.

I had acid reflux and allergies. I was throwing up when I had them both. I had a hard time breathing because I had so much mucus in my nose and I believe when I was lying down I was getting acid coming back up into my nasile cavities. I got on an acid reflux medicine and started using salt water which the sell in the store. Saline made by the Ocean brand worked better than any nasile spray they gave me.

Several years ago something similar happened to me. Finally one night it lead to me going to the ER where they were finally, after 6 hours, were able to get the pain and vomiting under control. They did all kinds of test and finally after releasing me 24 hours later sent met to a specialists. My specialist told me that while acid reflux is very common in rare cases it can be so extreme it becomes deabilitating to the patient. I was told most the acid reflux medicines wouldn't work on cases this extreme. I was given a very strict diet that I follow to this day (3 years later). If I step out of line just once it flares back up. The pain is so bad I have a perscription of hyrdocodine that I have to have in those cases. I recommend the diet because so far that is the only thing that really works for me.

I have problems breathing in general due to a panic disorder. Anyway, I have a stomach ulcer and as of lately acid reflux on top of it. Moments ago I vomited for the first time in like 4 years and had difficulty breathing afterwards and still difficult now. Mind you I have been suffering through upper abdominal pain.
