Hi, can anybody with LPR let me know if elevating the bed has helped with the sore throat and the burning at the back of the throat. I hear everybody with geard talking about it, but I wonder if it would helps us, because acid reflux affects us in a very different way. The specialist never said anything about it and I don't wake up at night or in the morning because or with a burning throat or sore throat .The soreness and the burning happens during the day . By the way I comply with the diet but I still burp a lot even by drinking water. Thanks and I hope a lot of you will answer with ways for all of us to learn to cope with this.View Thread
It is a few days now that I am experiencing palpitation, they come and go and feels like my heart is trayng to race but than goes back to normal. I have high blood pressure that has been under control, for many years now with medication. the only other time I had this problem was three years ago it started all of the sudden and after a few months of doctors and tests went away. I have now been diagnosed with acid reflux and I'm on omeprazone, It has been a 1 1/2 month and have just started having this problem. Could this be the acid reflux or the medication? I don't want to go to doctors just to have them tell me that it is all in my head , but I guess, if this continue, I will have to.View Thread
Today I am more depressed than ever. It is 1 month 1/2 that I have been taking omeoprazole 20mg. twice a day and I still have symptoms of LPR. It still hurts when I swallow and the back of my throat burns after eating I have to clear my throat ,still coughing and having post nasal drip. I am still waiting to have an appointment with the gi doctor. I have been eliminating more or less all the offending reflux food and I am miserable because I dont see any major difference. Am I being impatient ? Is anybody in this same boat and tell me how they cope?View Thread
