That could be caused by a hiatal hernia, do you have any signs or symptoms like reflux ??

I recommend you to do echo , liver function tests and kidney function test ,
Do you feel this uncomfortable sense when you lie down at night only?
Or if you slept any time in the day ??

What do you do to overcome this feeling of shortness of breath , do you raise up your head and sleep in 30 degrees position or you feel it in the very beginning only and once you enter your sleep everything becomes okay??

Hi
My opinion This is acid reflux , I recommend that you see an internal medicine doctor

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

It can be related to acid reflux but it is appearing more like cardiac problem only,.
You should get a 2D Echocardiography done for confirmation..

As for now you should sleep with head raised as compared to feet by keeping pillows and avoid lying on your back and prefer lateral positions
