i do have a question , my lungs are hyperinflated have been for awhile but after i eat certain things i get gas so bad it feels like i cant breathe and it hurts really bad i literally keep pepto bismol in stock at my house it happens whenever it wants even in the middle of the night it doesnt matter my chest balloons up and i can feel it . any one else have this problem often ?
