And about 10 days ago you developed breathing issues that sometimes can go away for a couple days.

I wonder too if you have an allergy.

So you have pain, a knot, between shoulder blades when eating (could be the acid issues)
You have acid problems for which you are taking a -prazole

You might have GERD. Stomach acid irritates the lungs causing breathing issues. Tell the doctor you experience that discomfort when eating and you are having trouble taking a full breath. Ask doctor about trying Omeprazole.

That's the worst part, when I get these bronchospasms it's like I can't get a deep breath down. The Advair has made them MUCH more manageable so I can actually function. It's awful not being able to take a complete breath. Never had this stuff before the heart issue.

I was tested for everything, and nada. They think a virus got into my heart and caused inflammation. They also found heart scarring that they thought looked like myocarditis…. I feel like the doctors ultimately looked at me and shrugged. But at least I can function now. I get heart flutters which worries me a bit. I've had a little bit of trouble paying off my medical bills so I'm trying to avoid the cardiologist until I can.

Only thing that has helped me is Advair and emergency inhalers. I get bronchospasms apparently. But I don't have asthma. This has been going on since I was diagnosed with pericarditis in February, 2019. I never had these types of breathing problems at any time in my life.

I asked my doctor about a hiatal hernia but he said nothing showed up on scans. I'm supposed to have an endoscopy next. The only thing that has really helped my breathing is Advair.

Nope. They lessen the intensity of attacks though. My doctor kind of explained it to me that the anxiety medication may "break a habit" of the SOB. So, he put me on Xanax for a while. I still get attacks though.

My pulmonologist told me that acid can get into lungs causing inflammation and thus SOB. Also, did they check your gall bladder?
