    I am experiencing the same thing except no blood. My acid reflux RX had to be increased to taking 2x a day.

    I also changed my diet to complete acid free food items and I take apple cider vinegar with water. ( read about this on Google), it is great for acid reflux and many other things in our bodies.

    I pretty much had to figure out what was causing these problems on my own, due to doctors lack of concern and knowledge. It has been a very slow process in helping me, but I am on the right path now.

    I hate the phlegm it drives me mad too! Herbal teas seem to help break it down, luquorice or pukka night time are really good. I always chew fruit gum too which helps x I'm sure anxiety makes it worse though x also using a decongestant which helps too. Avoid fatty food and ant ly fruit juices or acidic food and drink. Melon is ok as is banana x x but try not to worry if you've been checked out. I'm waiting for ENT appt for throat scope xx

      Before you try all these mucin ex, etc,

      Read about the side effects. I used mucinex for months, did nothing. I read everything. It can actually make the mucus. I stopped everything.

      Antihistamines are also bad for acid Reflux. Go acid free diet and apple cider vinegar

      I use apple cider vinegar. The dr. Told me to take it first thing in the morning mixed with olive oil. He said in a warm glass of water or it won't work

      If you use olive oil with the apple cider vinegar, you are defecting the purpose. Original olive oil is high in fat. Extra virgin olive oil is lower in fat. I know most doctors tell us a lot of things that are incorrect. I just giggled info on olive oil. Before you trust your doctor, read about the items first. Of course this is my opinion. Just my 2 cents.

      Thank you Jane. I haven't used the olive oil yet. I just use the vinegar. My ent Dr. Said I shouldn't use the vinegar because it burns the throat on the way to the esophagus, but she understood y he said to use the vinegar
