Re: Can trapped wind cause shortness of breath?
Thanks for the quick reply and validation. The fact that this has been going on for a few days now was the biggest thing I was worried about, it takes a lot of stress off knowing that others have experienced this for days on end.
I have caught myself swallowing air on occasion, when I'm nervous... and several days ago I had to put my dog down, that's when all of this began.
I've heard from others that trapped wind can put pressure on the diaphragm and cause these feelings, which would intuitively make sense for me, because when I feel short of breath I almost always also feel gassy...
