228936 tn?1249097848 Hi, I have some reflux problems and swallowing /throat problems that my doctor said could be from long term untreated reflux. Could this make it difficult to sing, ie, making my throat feel irritated while singing? This is a problem because I am a musician and am expected to sing sometimes.

Avatar m tn HI I am samir from canada. I have been suffering acid reflux problems. Since i started my acid reflux tablet which is 20 mg rabeprazole i am having problems in mouth. I am having ulcer in mouth, white lining on cheek, sore throat, sore ear. Can somebody tell me about these problems. Can it happens because of this tablet?
Avatar f tn But, I was diagnosed with lpr which is acid that comes all the way to the top of your throat, your mouth, etc. so...the sore throat at least in my case is from the acid constantly burning the vocal cords which causes swelling and inflammation. Makes sense when you think about it. Anyhow, there are a variety of different ppi meds other than nexium, and prilosec. There are also other drugs like zantac, like tagamet and pepcid that may help.
Avatar f tn I know it sounds crazy but it's the only thing that soothes the acidic burn in my throat and prevents me from choking on acid again. Again, people who only have mild reflux during pregnancy may be different idk. I get reflux film everything..even water.
Avatar n tn But there are a lot of medicine which can help you out from this acid reflux problem. You know millions of USA people are suffering from acid reflux problem. And Yes if you don't want to eat medicine you can go for natural therapy its called acid refux pillow.

722661 tn?1230928883 The videoscope they did before Christmas does show irritation in my throat from acid. i am on prevacid, which is a proton pump inhibitor. If you are having problems, you have to follow the reflux diet faithfully and it can take a year or longer to heal. Some things that I don't have anymore thanks to this diet - coffee, soda, any carbonated beverage, alcohol, chocolate, fruit juices except for cranberry. Forget tomato based products, including the beloved salsa.
Avatar n tn moved away) told me to stop all the asthma meds (albuterol, qvar, seravant, and sometimes prednisone) which were not really affective anyway, and put me on pepcid (acid reducer) a couple of weeks ago saying it was Acid Reflux causing the problem. Like you, I am still concerned because I still have pain, but I was told it may take a few months for healing of the esophagus to occur.
Avatar n tn I too have been told I have acid reflux and I don't suffer from heartburn. After doing some research and reading what other have said, it's possible to have reflux without having the classic symptoms. Were you diagnosed with laryngopharyngeal reflux? That causes problems with your throat and can affect your voice.
Avatar f tn My ent dr looked down my throat with a scope and said my throat was irritates behind my vocal cords and said since I don't smoke it is acid reflux. He placed me on Prilosec and I have been on this for almost 2 months and I don't seem better. Is there something better I should try? Or could my voice changing be caused by something else?
1230912 tn?1273496370 I was very curious as to how many on this forum suffer from some type of Acid Reflux and whether or not it is related to MS or a problem of it's own? I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago and thought I was done with heartburn after getting rid of it, but I have had horrible problems lately.
Avatar n tn i had my lapband done almost a year ago. since my last two adjustments i have been having problems with acid reflux. i have nexium and prilosec and neither have really helped. i am considering having my band loosened unless someone has found something else that works?
Avatar n tn I've never really heard of bcp correlating to acid reflux. I have acid reflux and I was on the pill for 10 years, but I had acid reflux way before I started the pill. I have burping alot when my stomach is empty, does that sound like when you get the burps, like right before lunch time or dinner, or do you have it all day? The sore throat could be from anything, especially this time of year. It could be drainage from sinuses/allergies causing it, I know I have it right now.
Avatar n tn episode often happens while sleeping (lying down), but can also happen while standing or sitting! (Reflux can be acid reflux, or alkaline reflux--both are irritating to vocal cords). We use the DGL INSTEAD OF ACID BLOCKERS, because, as several of you said, you are getting NERVE DAMAGE ("PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY") AS A RESULT OF USING ACID BLOCKERS! Peripheral nerves are outside the brain & spinal cord.
Avatar f tn Reflux isn't an emotional problem, but a medical one, and one that is very common, unfortunately You might want to see your doctor to get medication for the reflux. Does your back pain occur during the night and did it begin after you started elevating the bed? If so that is more reason to find another solution for the reflux!
Avatar f tn Anyway, I had difficulty swallowing, my throat felt thick and even hours after I ate I would have acid reflux burbs. I would get a horrible taste in my mouth at night and in the morning my breath was so gross. Gah! I just read about it here on the Forum and began taking a Zegerid (omeprazole/sodium bicarbonate) in the mornings. I did that for a couple of weeks and the problem just kind of resolved itself.
Avatar n tn A recent broncoscopy showed a lot of infection and inflamation and also abnormal bubbling in the lungs, (she seemed well at the time, no fevers etc) the resp doctors are wondering if this is due to a fistula or connection between the lungs and the stomach however they have been unable to find one (one of her symptoms is a hugely distended stomach) To me this sounds like more of side effects from the reflux problem and ? aspiration.
Avatar f tn Apart from uvula infections, severe allergic reactions from certain medications or allergens also contribute to the swelling. A swollen uvula is also the outcome of acid reflux or tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils, especially the palatine tonsils). Consuming extremely hot food or liquid may burn the uvula and cause swelling. Alcohol abuse, mouth ulcers or a canker sore anywhere near the uvula, may also be included among the many swollen uvula causes.
Avatar f tn You can feel heartburn in your chest with acid reflux you feel in your throat its not the same thing but im exactly the same no heartburn just acid reflux which i got the tums smoothie flavors and only have to take one and it goes away but on the back of the bottle it tells you its for heartburn, acid reflux, and tummy problems
Avatar n tn I started having severe problems with acid reflux. I faced a constant burning in upper chest and my appetite has reduced significantly. Due to this, over last 3 months I have reduced a significant amount of weight. Now in February 2016, I am having severe heartburns and no appetite at all. I am vomiting even small amounts of food. And my oesophagus feels significantly narrowed. I am taking PPIs (Omeprazole) from last 4 months but they are not helping.
Avatar m tn After 2 weeks of healthy diet (no alcohol, little meat, no coffee, no late night meals, lots of vegetables, daily yogurts and probiotics, drinking 1 or 2 daily herbal tea's such as licorice teas, and lots of water) I went to the ENT for swollen tonsils/throat, acid reflux was also the cause, so the ENT gave me an extra 8 weeks prescription of the PPI's for throat and stomach alltogether to really get rid of both problems.
676912 tn?1332816151 Mine over-ate to soothe her throat. Some spit up a lot (typical reflux) others don't spit up (silent reflux). My baby would stiffen and arch her back and scream. Burps made her scream. Hiccups made her scream. It wasn't fussing, but pain.
Avatar n tn While it is possible that your symptoms are caused by acid reflux I couldn't find any information in the literature about verapamil contributing to reflux. The effects of verapamil are more on the blood vessels than on the muscles of the esophagus. Verapamil can cause constipation in < 9% of patients and nausea, dyspepsia and abdominal discomfort in less than 3% of patients. Be sure your doctors have ruled out heart problems with a good stress test.
Avatar n tn My thought is, if it is acid reflux, why am i not feeling the burning? Is it possible to have acid reflux with out the burning heartburn? I am seeing a lung specialist soon and am considering have allergy testing to try to get to the bottom of this. One more question, has anyone heard of clamidia pnemonia? Google it and see what you think. I'm thinking it matches my symptoms , but testing is not covered by most insurance companies.
Avatar f tn I also use Zante for my horrific heart burn and acid reflux. I wished I could still take my Prilosec one a day everyday and I never had ANY problems! But unfortunately it's not on the recommended list of otc meds to take , but I'm not positive it's harmful.
