Gas causing all kinds if issues

I have Gerd and very frequently,  almost everyday, have intestinal gas. Most of the time I can feel it in my stomache and chest. Whenever I am having alot of gas I get light headed, short of breath, and get pain in my left shoulder. I also sometimes begin to feel extremely tired. This can happen a couple times a day. I feel like this is uncommon.. is it?

Yes, those are pretty extreme symptoms.  Are you sure they are related to GERD? What about irritable bowel syndrome.  Those are actually more the symptoms of that issue.  Do you have a regular doctor you see?

I do also have irritable bowel syndrome,  yes.
Okay. I think you are actually having symptoms of your IBS. Do you see a doctor for that?  What do you do to treat the IBS?  That may need to be adjusted.
