First off I'm having trouble swallowing, saliva only swallowing water and food seem to go down fine but saliva seems to travel slowly or get stuck or something. It feels like the bones in my throat are all wrong, I really don't like this feeling, it's extremely uncomfortable. But my biggest problem is just recently as I was lying down to sleep, I realized I wasn't breathing and that breathing had become difficult, well not really difficult.. I could take full breaths, but they required much effort, like trying to gasp nearly. And breathing full breaths would make me dizzy because of this, but I can't establish a simple breathing pattern to sleep by. Whenever I just try to let my body take over and breathe natural, I don't breathe at all! I have to will myself to take breaths. And they're generally very short since I don't like the light headedness associated with the full breathing. There's a slight dry wheeze whenever I exhale with strain, and making myself belch seems to be an easier way to breathe than breathing. There's also a pain in my left ear. I've been told by my doctor before that I have some acid problems, but I've been taking Protonix for more than two months now with my acid still strong. But this breathing problem I haven't had since I went to see the doctor in the first place. And it was only once then. It just happened so suddenly, I was breathing find and then I lie down and immediately begin experiencing problems. I also have terriible posture and spend 5+ hours a day using the computer, sitting not up straight in a chair, not sure if that has anything to do with it either.
