I am 54 yrs old, male, hypertensive and hypokalemic. I take Norvasc daily for my hypertension and Kalium Durule (potassium) for my hypokalemia.
Since 2007, I have been experiencing stomach problems and chest/breathing problems.
I frequently have gas in my stomach, and also feel like gas is trapped in my chest and windpipe area, affecting my breathing pattern. I massage my upper left or right chest near the armpit, and sometimes I burp after doing this, and feel relieved. Gas trapped inside my chest area cause discomfort and pressure in my breathing, sometimes feeling like air I breathe also goes to my stomach, instead of my lungs, making me feel bloated inside my stomach. Sometimes, I am relieved from feeling bloated when I ***t or burp. At times, after eating, I feel discomfort and pressure in my stomach. Like food is not moving and got stuck inside causing a bloating feeling. I get relieved sometimes when I drink Yakult or yogurt drink.
