Acid Reflux Symptoms Driving Me Crazy

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm looking for some advice, i'm a sufferer of acid reflux due to a sliding hernia. Ive been managing the symptoms for several years. Over that time i have been a bit slow to fully address the issue.

i gave up smoking once diagnosed with the sliding hernia, i gave up drinking alcohol a couple months ago and finally started taking reflux irritant foods seriously a month ago.

over the last few weeks i've started experiencing new symptoms that have me worried. for the last 3 weeks ive been hyper salivating and when i eat any food im generating phlegm. when im drifting off to sleep i find myself involuntarily swallowing, i think this might be the excess saliva.

im waking up feeling nauseous.

I occasionally have soreness or dull ache in my throat.

despite these symptoms im not having any issues with eating, neither am i having stomach or chest pain, ive had those symptoms before but since ive changed my diet these have passed.

my query has anyone suffered from hyper salivation or water brash and as anyone had the constant phlegm even when eating non acidic foods

this is starting to worry me, any advice would be greatly appreciated

    I have the problem with phlegm after eating, It makes me want to cough and it is full of small bubbles! It happens in the Winter when I am prone to coughs anyway but the Doctor states it is a reflux problem. When I do get a cough it makes it twice as bad.
