Gastric acid reflux disease (GORD) can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, and an asthma-like syndrome. Ask your doctor to put you on a trial of high dose antacid therapy to see if it helps. The diagnosis can be quite tricky, so you may need to consult a specialist. The latter can also decide on the cause of your shortness of breath. Sometimes 2 or 3 conditions can co-exist.
