Hello all, I'm not sure whether I chose the correct category to post my question in, but I have an issue that has been persisting for a while. I do plan on going to the doctor next week, but it just has been weighing on me. I recently (for the past couple months) have heard the occasional wheeze when I take deep breaths, also, I had some coughing and pain in the chest as well when I would breathe in. I decided it may go away on it's own and to ignore it (CLEARLY the smartest decision). As of recently (1 month or so) I have begun to notice after I belch, a cough follows after and I do still have the occasional wheeze and cough once in a while. The cough after the burp though, happens after every burp. I understand I may be worrying about nothing, and probably should calm down, but I would like some opinions as to what people may think it could be. I thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you all for the responses (if I do get them that is).

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your question has anwers in it. The reason for the cough and wheeze inability to subside is the Belching and burping also called GERD. Until and unless you manage it with diet and lifestyle modifications and medications etc, these collateral damages will be unavoidable.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
