My husband has had these problems for all his life as far as I know. He does have a smaller left lung that was a birth defect from his mother smoking while she was pregnant. Almost every time he eats his stomach hurts, I can't find any connection with the food. He has never had a normal guy appetite; he always eats in small portions. If he gets too much exercise he starts having trouble breathing, and coughs up a clear pink acidic liquid (we have assumed it is lung fluid) If he drinks or eats anything too late he will wake up in the middle of the night choking and I don't know if it matters but he has never been able to belch. Does anyone know what this is I hate to see him suffer so much.
