I started to have problems 2 years ago - a greasy taste in my mouth in the mornings and a small irritating cough. Doctor thought it was refux put me on 20mg Omezraphole and it sorted all the problems. After 6 months the Doctor made me go for a tube down the throat to check nothing sinister and it was confirmed I had a small hiatus hernia tear,
Everything fine for about 2 years then the pharmacy started to change the brand (previously Dr Readies capsules) and all the symptoms came back with a vengence but much worse. Constant sore throat, feeling sick, cough etc. The doctor then tried me on two other PPIs one known as Zantac and I had massively serious reactions to both (severe cramping and leg pain and throat closed up with the other) so told only option is Omezraphole. I asked to change to tables rather than capsules and for a few days it seemed ok but they just do not seem to work now.
I am highly intolerant to wheat so have to follow a gluten free diet so by the time I rule out most foods then anything dairy or citrus what is there to eat? Root vegetables give me terrible wind and indigestion as does salad items.
Also my throat is so sore all the time it gets you down and I worry about throat or esophogus cancers etc. What other options are there? Please tell me what you do or take to allievate symptoms etc
