He was suffering from symptoms of bloating in the abdomen and chest. These symptoms would come up after eating. He experienced difficulty in breathing due to the abdominal and chest fullness. He was relieved by burping.
He also complained of recurrent throat infections and allergic bronchitis. The physician told him that this was due to the back flow of acid to the airway.
When bloated up, he gasped for breath, while walking. He would also experience chest pain on being bloated up.
If he missed a meal, or if he took spicy food or if he drank Coke or Pepsi, then he would get a burning sensation in the chest.
