  • I had a similar problem, when this stabbing pain would flare up under my left rib cage... It was also hard for me to inhale. I had an endoscopy and my doc says it's reflux. He put me on nexium.

He put me on nexium. cheers I have been put on lansopazole,the tablets are not helping.I have salbutomol inhaler that was doing nothing .I have never had breathing problems in my life.I dont no why this is affecting my breathing.I was told my exray of my lungs was normal the question is why is my heart racing.It might be developing in to panic attacks because it gets to me when I can not get full breath.When I eat it makes the problem worse ie my breathing.I am going to docs next week I dont think I can put up with this much longer thank you for responding
    i hope it is reflux hopefully they can get this sorted.I had to go for peak flow but I could not get enough air in to get a reading.

  • Hi thanks for the reponse I am still finding it hard to take a deep breath,
    i have stopped smoking for 10 month and still have stomach pain.I did have a ulcer been on the meds so far camera down tried differant tablets nothing has helped.I have been put on rabeprazole this seems to be making me worse.It has all started since I stopped smoking,so much for making me better.I was losing weight now I am putting weight on and not eating have a much falling to bits.Still can not take full breath stomach feels hard all the time like a football.Told I had panic attacks on top I think it due to the pain heart still going fast can not get my breath I could breath no problem before this stomach problem.Hope some one out there got an answer my doc thinks I am mad :(
