So over the last 2-3 weeks i've started to get acid reflux.. it's not affecting my chest and i'm not getting heartburn but everyday i have had the strong taste of acid in my mouth, along with what feels like a burning tongue, dry mouth and constant need to cough. It's also caused my asthma to kick in which hasn't happened in about 20 years. A week and a half ago I was put on PPI to reduce the amount of acid, I 've been taking one a day but it's just gotten worse on these and this taste is making me feel constantly sick. I didn't take them this weekend (fri/sat)... and this weekend bar a tiny acid taste in the morning I was fine even after eating. I went to the docs and they've referred me for a test in 3 weeks to see if they can see anything, but advised me to stay on the tablets. So I took them on Sunday and again today (Monday) and by midday the full strength acid has kicked back and is making me feel dreadful.
I've been advised that the symptoms for high amounts of acid can be the same for low acid production. So was wondering if anybody had the same reaction and wether or not it's worth coming off these until I have my appointment?
