Hi and thanks for using the forum.

It is great that your tests came back OK.  Since your doctor diagnosed you with reflux are you taking any medications?  YOu may notice a difference once you have been on an acid reflux medication.  It is certainly possible that the gas in your chest is giving you that difficulty breathing feeling.  Anxiety can cause it as well.  YOu can try reducing your stress level by exercising, meditaing, yoga, etc. and seeing if that helps with your symptoms.   There are also anti-anxiety medications that you doctor can prescribe for you if you need them.  Good luck.
