      Hey Kate,

      i did endoscopy in November 2019 and reveled H.phyroli..No inflammation. I am not scared as i am living everyday as my last day. Anxiety increases chances of reflux. Age is a matter above when you are above 60 its usually normal as LES weaken over the period. i am 32 years old, married last year and have a beautiful wife. my prognosis is pretty bad initially throat pain then hoarse voice then swallowing issue then heart and stomach burn and pain and clogges ear. PPI is harmful so i avoid any medicine.. I have tried lifting bed, diet, no dinner and keto food which help a bit.

      Yougard will help for sure.. after eating wait 4 hours to sleep..less food..Apple cider will help..

      i am suspecting H.phyroli is still a issue and will consult a gastroenterologist soon.

    It sounds to me like acid reflux. It can affect everything from chest and back pain to ear pain. Have you had treatment for hpylori? PPIs are not harmful, particularly if you just take them for a short time. I have taken them for years and I only have minor side effects like bruxism and a bit of IBS. If I don't take my PPI tablets I also get the symptoms you are having. Have you tried gavisc0n double action? It can really help with heartburn. Also have you heard of a low acid diet? If not look it up and try it to see if it can help. When you eat, do it slowly really chew your food a lot because it helps neutralise the acid. Also try chewing gum but not peppermint flavour as that has links with reflux. Don't eat until you are full and eat small meals but have 4 meals a day rather than 3. So you never feel hungry but never feel full. Foods/drinks to avoid: chocolate, caffeine, citrus fruits/juices, spicy foods, fatty foods, alcohol and sugary foods. If you try all this and your symptoms don't improve at all, then maybe you could have a food intolerance or allergy and there are tests for that.
