So for the past 7 months I have been experiencing acid reflux symptoms, it happened out of no where but has been a pain ever since. It started off with chronic back, chest and neck pain and i was prescribed nexium 40mg which did nothing. I also ended up eating next to nothing as every food seemed to trigger it. I was later reffered to a Gastro specialist, had an endoscopy and found a small hiatial hernia causing acid to back up into my oesophagus..long story short the chronic pain symtoms got alot better so i went back to eating normalling thinking i was fine...turns out this build up of mucous at the back of my throat was acid reflux all along. And now for the past 11 1/2 weeks i have been experiencing blocked ear, right side headaches and facial pain. my ENT says it is inflammation and congestion in my nose that could possibly be from acid reflux (no definitive diagnosis yet) I have also been experiencing lightheadedness/wooziness due to this. Has anyone ever experienced this?? also what are your tips for keeping the acid reflux at bay? my main concern in the mucous and it seems to happen regardless of what i eat and also in between meals I have been on Somac 20mg once a day for past 8 weeks now just upped it to twice a day.
