I was diagnosed several years ago with COPD and was given Spiriva. At that time I really had no overt symptoms and felt the medication wasn't necessary so never really went very far with that treatment. I am now 74 years old and am experiencing extreme belching which immediately precedes breathing difficulties. I've had all kinds to gastro testing and nothing has ever been found to cause the belching. I suspect that now by COPD has progressed from the original diagnosis and may be manifesting as this belching problem. I wonder if others have related experience and, more importantly, if there is some recommendations that they have experienced that reduces the problem. From what I read of others, Spiriva may well make the problem worse - which would suggest I shouldn't take it. I would appreciate any comments or observations.
I have been on Protonix for gastritis for a problem of not being able to burp and everytime i ate my stomach got very bloated and felt like it was going to burst! It was scarey cause i could not burp and had to walk around the house for 3 hours trying to burp Im still suffering from feeling uneasy after i eat n sometimes struggle to burp however after 3 weeks of being on Protonix i have now progressed to burping to much to the extent i have to stay home cause its so uncomfortable. Is this ever gonna get better Or is this a life sentence😫
