Kept treating with antibiotics thinking it a sinus infection. both my G P and and E NT here in MI
It took an E N T in Fl while on vacation to go down my throat through my nose and quickly say you have acid reflux known as L P R which differs from GERD. I took various PPIs for awhile which did nothing so i live with itView Thread
have been diagnosed with L P R, i questioned this as my symptoms do not fir acid reflux. Th E N T said only 30% exhibit the classic reflux G E R D symptoms like waking with a mouth full of acid, having to sleep sitting up, etc.
Have tried all the over the counter and prescription P P I s taking one hr before eating, nothing works. You said your Dr changed your meds
