Trouble Breathing, Headache

My son has had these symptoms for months now and has seen several specialists but not a gastroenterologist or a neurologist  yet and I'm not sure which direction to go.. It doesn't bother him all the time but a lot of the time. I don't always notice the bloating but he says his stomach hurts in the middle (center bottom rib cage) and he gets very short of breath and complains about having headaches. He is type 1 diabetic but his blood sugars have been good. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

Hi,
I think you should consult a gastroenterologist at earliest. You should get a milk scan or a Barium swallow study or radio-isotope study of lower esophagus. Your child's symptomatology suggests that he has got Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). There is definitive treatment available for this cause. Treatment success rates are high.
Hence you should consult a Pediatric-Gastroenterologist at earliest.
Hope this helps.
Bye.
