Cough, lack of breathing and burping
I have cough for about one year and it's on and off. Also, I have shortness of breath which happens along with cough. The cough has increased 5 months back because I stopped smoking. Been to hospital and nothing was helpful. Finally went to a hospital and they did PFT and said it was because of smoking which I stopped. So they did put me on Nebulisation for 15 days in June 2020 (Forminide repsule) and I did and I was fine for 1 and half month but later it again started. I was coughing a lot and along with burps. I get lots of burps. Again did a teleconsultation with a doctor who asked me to use a Formonide inhaler and montair 10 at night. Also, I cannot eat normally as I was eating. If I eat like normal i find difficult to breath. Doctor prescribed me with a tab Razo D before my meal. Now I'm worried if I have a problem with my heart or or lungs because of lack of breath. Kindly suggest which specialist I should be consulting for this.

Did u have any relief with the inhalers or Razo-D? How is your appetite? Have u lost any weight? Any fever or night sweats? Do u get any sputum with cough? Sonu get any choking? Any hoarse voice? In chronic, dry cough, acid reflux and asthma are sometimes responsible. To treat acid reflux, avoid spicy foods, avoid smoking and citrus drinks and alcohol. Give 3-4 hrs gap after dinner before sleeping and use extra pillow. Use acid blocking meds like Sompraz 40mg once daily before breakfast for 1 month. Avoid certain pain killers. If the inhalers or nebulizers didn’t help, then asthma is unlikely. If no improvement, u need further evaluation like blood tests, CT chest and other tests as mentioned below.
Next Steps
Use medicines to reduce acid as mentioned above. And diet as mentioned. If no improvement, then you should get CBP, ESR, sputum tests, CT scan chest, ECG and 2D echo. Endoscopy may also be indicated if u continue to get burps and cannot eat.
