Avatar f tn Have had sore throat for 3 months now. No itching or coughing. Saw ENT DR. Sent me for barium swallow test . Came back normal. Changed my acid reflux medication to dexilant-that seems good. Next he sent me for a CT scan of head and throat. Sinuses looked ok-only thing they noted was to check for vocal cord paralysis. Dr. thought it looked ok when he scanned me in office. 8 weeks later, throat is getting worse. I try not to talk too much because that worsens the pain in the throat.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old male that has had a sore throat for over 2 months. My tonsils are swollen and it appears to be white patches in the very back of the throat behind the tonsils. My doctor diagnosed me with allergic rhinitis and my ENT diagnosed me with acid reflux. I am currently taking 10mg 2x per day of Omeprazole. The ENT stated that it would take up to 3 months of taking the medication to see any change in the throat.
Avatar n tn I have had a sore throat for over three weeks and it has got much worse and now when I look in the back of my throat I have a red bubble, in the middle back near the thing that hangs down. I had my tonsils taken out about 4 months ago.
Avatar n tn ___________ Dear Bill, Your current throat pain may be related to the inflammation associated with an upper respiratory infection. Causes of a sore throat that lasts two years include esophageal reflux, sinus problems and post nasal drip. If your sympytom is not increasing in severity, investigation at this time is probably no needed. This information is presdented for educational purposes only.

Avatar m tn I have noticed every so often I will have a sore throat. It looks raw and unpleasant. Is it common to get sore throats? I thought maybe this was caused by the acid reflux going back into the throat??? Also I am on 5days of doing the prevpac and am wondering how long it takes to heal?
Avatar m tn Hi, and thanks for sharing. Laryngopharyngeal reflux is the backup of gastric content into the larynx and pharynx. It causes difficulty swallowing, a feeling of mucus or thick phlegm in the throat, sensation of a ball in the throat (globus pharyngeus), chronic sore throat, chronic irritative cough, hoarseness, chronic throat clearing, frequent gagging and post nasal drip. Untreated LPR also may play a role in the development of cancer of the voice box.
Avatar m tn The days following up until today (Sunday), My throat has been hoarse, I keep needing to clear my throat and now today my throat is sore. Can acid reflux be causing all of this? If so are H2 meds like Pepcid and Zantac ok, or are PPI meds like Prilosec and Prevacid better? Thanks and have a great day!
Avatar f tn See if you can get a prescription called omperazole it's for heart burn and acid reflux. I just got on it because of sore throats and it's amazing. Haven't had sore throat since. Worth a shot. It's safe to take.

Avatar n tn I had acid prob about 3month before and was taking aomeprazole 20mg, and had gone for endoscopy, but acid reflex stopped by itself and sore throat and pain it still there. I can advice us as I did, Dont take pasta as its made of tomato sauce, generates too much acid, I reduced rice food, no any soft drink or fruit juices, stopped eating chocolates and stayed away from garlic.I take cold milk soon after dinner or lunch, cold milk help to stop generating or diminish excessive acid.
Avatar m tn It feels like something in my throat and I have a cough every now and then. I was thinking about going to CVS to get some throat lozenges. What should I do?
Avatar n tn Hello, several nights ago I woke up from sleeping and felt my throat closing, like tightening up and I couldn't get a lot of air through. Since I had eaten a lot right before I slept (rare for me), I thought this was acid reflux. I took a Zantac, and this seemed to help a little. Since then (it's been almost a week) I have woken up every morning with a sore throat and from time to time the throat tightening is still happening.
Avatar n tn I have had sore throat for over a month now, with no other symptoms of anything (cold or flu) is there a reason to be concerned? or how serius can it be?
Avatar f tn You may need to undergo endoscopic evaluation which will help to diagnose acid-reflux disease and as well as esophageal pathology. Firstly I suggest you to consult ENT surgeon for possible causes and further management. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Hi, Someone has played mischief on you, there is no evidence to prove that sore throat can be reduced by sucking the genitals. There are many causes for sore throat, like long standing sinus problems, gastric reflux, recurrent infection of the pharynx and tonsils. Get yourself evaluated from an apt ENT specialist and also try taking medicines depending upon the cause. Drink plenty of warm water, avoid smoking and eating greasy food. Any more doubts you are welcome.
Avatar m tn Hi im 20 years old i an occasional smoker and 2 days ago i started feeling my throat right and rough....next day got worse..i started having mucas and a little blood....does this sound like a smokers throat or something more ?
Avatar m tn I burped once, and I felt acid in the back of my throat. Since that moment, I have had a bad sore throat, with the pain centered around my right tonsil. When I swallow, I also feel a twinge in my right ear. Even though I don't feel any bloating or heartburn, I have a slight burning in my throat. I thought that I might have burned the back of my throat when I burped, but there doesn't seem to be any sign of it (ie. sores).
Avatar n tn It has now been just about 5 days since the procedure and my throat (tonsil area) is still sore. I thought it was getting better but today it seems a little worse. I noticed that my pharmacy info insert for the Prilosec says to "call your doctor immediately" if you have a sore throat. How do I know if the Prilosec is causing this or if it still a result of the endoscopy? What does it mean if the Prilosec is causing a sore throat? Is that an allergic reaction? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I really wish that nausea or reflux could be included in the Sleep Tracker list. And even scratchy throat. It would be so much easier than keeping track of it/them in a Sleep Journal. Not everyone recognizes silent reflux or even GERD as a symptom of sleep disturbance but we all recognize nausea and scratchy throat when we experience them.
Avatar f tn d vote for reflux meds for a trial first .. reflux is sneaky stuff and causes sore throat pain as you describe and sounds like they found inflammation .. ????
Avatar f tn I have had a sore throat now for about a week. The sore throat comes on about 8:00 p.m. It is very sore and makes it hard to swallow. It keeps me up most of the night. I finally get out of bed around 5 ish, drink a cup of hot coffee and within about an hour my sore throat is gone until around 8:00 at night again. Also in the morning then I am very hot and sweaty. Any suggestions.
Avatar n tn Few weeks later especially after starting Naui Kriya, I suddenly got a severe cold with a tightening sore throat. I took antibiotics, but the sore throat never stopped. I never had a sore throat before even though I had GERD. My sore throat also comes after I eat or sit down for some time. Now it has been around 3 months but the sore throat continues. I am not sure if the exercises worsened the reflux or I contracted some other illness ( super bug or something ) that is affecting my throat.
Avatar f tn Both acid reflux/GERD and sore throat/feeling like there's something in the throat choking one, can be caused by thyroid inflammation. As already suggested, it's a good idea to see your doctor and ask for some tests to be done.
Avatar m tn For example, I had been having a mild sore throat for 2 months then at last I got a cold/flu and developed a worse sore throat. I took medicine and the flu/cold sore throat went away. The original chronic sore throat went away too! You may say that it was the medicine that helped. But it is not true. I have tried different medicine solely for getting rid of the chronic sore throat due to acid reflux but it never worked.

Avatar n tn I also suffer from muscle pain and stiffness, fatique and acid reflux and heartburn, Dizziness and Vision problems. Numbness and tingling in all extremities as well as face and neck. At the moment on 20mg of Prilosec a day. It does help, but by the end of many days I am also still using tums. Can you offer any sugesstions.
