Can acid reflux cause ear pain, shortness of breath and abdominal fullness
Reflux would not cause ear pain.
Reflux may be closely associated with irritation that may be felt as abdominal fullness. It would not itself really be the cause of this symptom but the conditions would frequently be felt together.
Reflux would not be a typical cause of shortness of breath but it is possible. It may be that fluid from the stomach makes it's way to the top of the esophagus and may be aspirated into the respiratory tract. This may cause wheezing , cough and shortness of breath.
I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions. Best regards,
