My acid reflux journey started just under 1 year ago.
After 3 or 4 visits to the doctors, him putting me on I think 40mg of omeprazole I finally got it under control and was managing nicely on 10mg.
Then a few weeks ago we had a day at the cricket and a night out and the following week a wedding.Now I am not a big drinker but I did have more than normal and food as well.
The week after I started with dull stomach pains and waking up in the morning with that horrible sour taste in my mouth,something I had when I first started with acid reflux.
After a trip back to the doctors he told me to double my dosage of tablets from 10mg to 20mg for around a week, which I did.This got rid of the stomach pain and sour taste within days. However I have started getting a little regurgitation in the back of my throat each time I eat and a lump type feeling in the back of my throat (Globus) that comes and goes.
When I first started with acid reflux I had the lump in my throat about a week or so into my medication and the doctor told me it would pass,which it did.
I was though on a higher dosage at that point to what I am on now (20mg) and it went in next to no time.This time it has been around for a week, not getting any better and not getting any worse but 20mg doesnt seem to be doing the trick as yet.
Should I ask my doctor to up my dosage and gradually drop back to 10mg as before when I feel ok again or should I wait for the 20mg of omeprazole to start doing their job?
