I'm 34 and at 17 was diagnosed with GERD. Anyway. For the last 3 years I often lose my voice, get fluid in my chest that needs coughed out and sore throats along with the constant need to swallow and just that thick feeling in my throat. In July I woke up one morning to a headache and a blocked inner ear and that horrid feeling of pressure. I automatically assumed it was my ETD but after over a month went by it was still there. Was prescribed a water pill, steroid by my ent. After 2 months is finally went away and afterwards I had he silent reflux flare up. Last week I noticed my ear getting that way again and had yet again another "silent reflux flare up"
I'm curious, could these things be related? Anyone else have this issue?
Also hoping to get some advice on how to make this silent reflux be a bit more bearable. If my pcp didn't point it out to me, I would just have continued thinking I got sore throats and colds all the time.
She precsibed me the usual stuff but does that even work? I read somewhere that it doesn't.
I did eat pasta and I'm assuming that's what caused this flare up so I'm done with all saucy stuff becuase these flareups are miserable. How do you help yourself feel better?
