34 yro male, healthy lifestyle. Symptoms: Daily regurgitation of meals, some reflux, difficulty breathing, coughing up phlem only when the weather gets cold. Stomach pressure located approx. where the sternum ends. Soda does not bother me. Alcohol is the worse. To the point I do not drink at all anymore (beer, wine or spirits) because the next day is so bad. Diagnosed with gastroparesis 10+ years ago. No history of lung disease. Had the flu last winter with unexplained blood saturation issues; but after tests, no blood clots existed in the lungs. Medications: Just came off of 50 mg of Zoloft for panic attacks, approx. 1 month ago. Zantac 150 as needed. Struggling with difficulty breathing, which leads to panic attack, which leads to reflux or some version of this chain of events.
Questions: Why am I regurgitating / coughing up phlem everytime the weather gets cold? Why am I regurgitating every single day? Should I look at going back on the Zoloft as the anxiety has become 10x worse since I got off? I'm concerned about the long term affects. I don't take a Xanax or Valium except for when I fly. Again, concerns about addiction problems with these. I was on 10 mg of propranolol this summer for flight anxiety and really worked. Is this a long term solution or option as well?
