Gastritis Breathing Issues

I'm a 34yr old male athlete. I workout daily and eat healthy but since November of last year I've experienced breathing issues and acid reflux. I had an endoscopy done last week and was diagnosed with Gastritis but I'm still awaiting the results from the Ultrasound of the Abdomen that was requested to be completed and the lab results from the biopsy. My question is when working out on an empty stomach I can perform normal sprinting and running weight lifting activities at peak performance but after having a meal even hours later when trying to workout I experience breathing issues such as chest tighness and the feeling of food traveling back up the esophagus. Is this normal and what can be done to control this? I'm currently taking Omeprazole and Rinitidin and have been using for over a month and although things are better during the day these meds havent stopped the issues during my workout.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that my need to be considered include dietary causes, motility disorders, neuro-muscular causes, causes related to the respiratory tract/ cardiovascular causes etc. I would suggest continuing with the medications and taking frequent small meals and avoiding heavy meals. If the symptoms do not seem better with the changes, I would suggest considering an evaluation by a primary care physician initially  and depending on the cause  diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought,
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
