Gerd symptoms

I was diagnosed with Gerd last spring and was put on Ranitidine 150 mgs twice daily.  Later found out that I had H. Pylori, had this cleared up after suffering with it most of the summer.  I figured that was what caused the GERD, was later put on zantac 150 mgs, however, haven't really been taking meds.  However, of late noticed that I've been coughing and find myself always clearing my throat, of which is starting to get annying.  Also notice that at times feel I have a hard time catching or getting my breath, especially after exercise, but at certain times I'm fine.  It's like I take a breath, but can't seem to get enough air or something, find myself trying to yawn so as to get my breath.

I've noticed this more of late.  Are these symptoms of Gerd?

...hmmm, I would like to ask if u have post nasal drip?It can affect the acid in ur system.
Some meds do cause ur system to be more acidic and it may not b mentioned as a side effect, but everyone is diff...so u may experience a side effect that no one else has.

Have u mentioned this to ur dr?...if not, it may be helpful to do so.
