See a Doctor, they have a lot of good stuff now for that. And do it before it does some serious damage.

Ive suffered from it for years. Been sipping off a Mylanta bottle for years. Had an endoscopy done and they said I had no signs of erosion on my esophagus or duodenal valve at all. Dr told me if Mylanta had been working for me all those years. To keep on using it.. Ive got a bottle in every vehicle I own.. Even the hotrod.. HA HA

I have had 7 surgeries for eshpigel dilation . I have been on one form or another of acid reducers for over 12 years . If I go more than a week without protonix or an equivalent I begin to loose the ability to swallow foods and the GERD is so severe that I actually get acid blisters in the back of my mouth and throat . There is no fix , only the ability to keep it under control with the proper medication . Bobby

If you decide to take medication try Aciphex first. I used it for years before having surgery to fix a Hiatal Hernia. If changing your diet doesn't help you really should see a doctor though.

I had this and had surgery performed call a NISSEN(sp). They actually pull the stomach up around the bottom of the esophagus and do a full or partial wrap around the bottom. The stomach then acts as the muscle to move the food down. I had this done 15 years ago and no more problems.

For the OP, over the counter Prilosec works well.

See a Dr. It may be just a change in diet or you may need some serious medicine. My brother is going through this now, was eating Tums like candy. Changed his diet a little and most of it was gone. You need to find out what is going on in there to treat it properly. It usually isn't serious but it can get out of hand and phuck you up. Why take a chance?

I got my nose broken awhile back. After that came a series of sinus infections, and I started clearing my throat alot. The sinus infections went away, and a neti-pot helped me alot.

However, the throat clearing never went away. My sinus doctor is sending me to the gastrointestinal doc. His claim is that I have silent reflux, potentially GERD. He stuck a scope up my nose and down my throat and says my esophagus is irritated and seems to have some extra skin, causing the post nasal drip type feeling in my throat.

I see the doctor in about a month and am anxious to see what he says. I have been clearing my throat for over a year now and the feeling is always the same, very annoying. The worst part is that sometimes it gets worse for a few hours and everyone thinks I am sick at work....

I took Prilosec for a while. Worked awesome but the damn migraines it gave me now and again would bring king kong to his knees so I had to stop and go back to the mylanta.

I did have a 3 month stint where I didnt suffer from it while I did the Atkins diet several years back. But my fat ass likes to eat stuff that aint good for me so I deal with the cherry mylanta.. ha ha

Just be careful. More than 3 or 4 mouthfulls in a day and your shitting like a goose the next morning..:p

I will definately look into that . Sometimes I envy folks who get (normal) heartburn . At one point I was down to 112 pounds from starving to death from not being able to swallow foods . That was about a year after the first surgery . SUCKED balls . Thanks , Bobby
