Our expert says:
Yes, GERD can be responsible for all your symptoms. GERD is associated with chronic inflammation and this can be related to your symptoms. I do however, suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy and barium meal, as GERD can be treated surgically. You should also consult an internal specialist for an opinion on your lungs, as well as blood tests to exclude arthritic disease.
