breathing problem all day, GERD?

Can GERD caused difficulty breathing all day?
Ive been searching for the cause of my breathing problem for years. Did chest x-ray when i want to try hyperbaric oxygen therapy and the doctor said my lung seems fine, but during my hyperbaric oxygen therapy i feel very breathless and it was a really bad experience, but the other people felt ok. I've gone to cardiologist but he said its not my heart and sent me to a gastroenterologis. I went to the gastroenterologis and the doctor just gave me drugs. Anyway, im not really sure if my gastro problem that bad. I often feel lots of gas in my stomach and heart racing after meal. (but when my breathing problem doesnt occur, lots of times i didnt feel difficulty breathing when having lots of gas in my stomach) My question was, can GERD caused difficulty breathing all day? (This usually happens when i dont get good quality of sleep but a couple of times happens for unknown reason) And what i mean by all day is, as in, from when i was sleeping untill waking up then untill go back to sleep again and try to sleep and it happens even when not after eating meal. My breathing problem feels worse when i was in a relax position (even sitting and try to relax) so when i move around it get better a little while but when i try to relax again like when i was trying to sleep it got worse, could it be muscle problem maybe? I do have sleep apnea but they happens randomly and not often. But sleep apnea only occurs when sleeping not when im awake. Anyway, i know i should go to a doctor to get this checked but i feel kind of lost since i already went to cardiologist, gastroenterologis, and get chest x-ray, i dont know what test should i get to find the cause. So, i was hoping if anyone could give me some input or maybe knows some information that could help me or maybe experience it too or similiar or knows someone who experience it, let me know cause i will truly appreciate it, please help, thanks.
