hi I need help with my very irritated and sore throat due to acid reflux. I am having 24 h constant pain in my throat and I want to know if there is anything I could take to help me. I am taking lanzoprazole which helps with heartburn but throat is pretty bad. Please help. I don't think is bacterial.

    Hi Leni,

    I have throat problems too - but I severely restricted my diet - and I only get problems when I eat and drink the wrong foods now. You could try this little remedy I found soothing - lemon squash, honey and a little bit of freshly grated ginger diluted with warm water. Worked wonders for me - I would always take it when I throat was sore.

    Hi leni.   I get bad acid burning my throat especially at night it wakes me up hurts so badly.   And for ladt few months had bad breathing problems, doctors gave me four diagnosis, after four months I told them I thought it may be due to acid, they out me back on lansoprazole 15 mg in mornings,  took for month, helped after up just took it, burning went off but few hours later burnt even more, breathing was still a big issue too, like I was trying to draw breath through cotton wool, horrible ....went back yesterday doctor put my dose of lansoprazole up to 30 mg, 15 mg twice a day, I took one yesterday morning as usual, and another last night......I slept well, never woke with burning sore throat pains, took another this morning when I woke at 7,  no breathing problems, no coughing, no burning acid, felt sooo good,    I was beging to worry that I had cancer of the throat, or lung cancer every horror possible, but by taking thus extra dose just proved that it had been caused through this awful acid, felt so unwell since July 6th, and all because of a id, honestly I know how you feel, the pain of the burning us awful, and makes you irritable and unwell,, perhaps doctor could up your dies for you, x

      Yes I am taking for 3 weeks now 30 mg lanzoprazole daily. I am scared that this heartburn and sore throat will never go away. I had gallbladder surgery a month and two weeks ago and that's when it all started. I was feeling better with the heartburn and today it came back really bad. I don't understand this PPI should be helping by now I think. Maybe the cause of this reflux is not acid only. I am seeing a specialist soon and hope I get some answers.
