Does anyone else have a crackling/popping candy sound in your throat when you breath? I only hear it at night when i am in bed.

    I use to get just a touch of crackling noise at night when I was lying down I could also feel just a touch of conjestion in my left lung. I also had breathing problems from the reflux in fact that was my main symptom, I took Prilosec for 1 year and weined myself off it took a few months to get my stomach back to normal but I am much better off the medicine then I was when I was on it. my breathing is better to no more crackling at night.  I still get breathing problems but it has been ever so slowly getting better

      Sometimes I feel like I can't get as deep a breath as I would like, especially if I hsve had coffee, coffee seems to really bother my reflux, it is hard to give it up completely or if I over eat then I can really feel it, also sometimes I can feel nose congestion at the same time

      Thanks for clarifying Debra. I have similar symptoms although I pretty much have symptoms all the time. It is better when I eat a low carbohydrate diet but still trying to figure out what I can and can't eat. At the moment I can eat only 8 different foods. Very annoying. It's good that you know your triggers. Why do you think you've been getting better? Was it the prosilec?

      It all started when I went on a 10 day water fast only water no food, a few days after the fast was done the breathing problems began, I noticed I was taking  more deep breaths and from there it got worse, I put up with it for about 2 months before I went to the doctor, To make a long story shorter the lung doctor told me he thought I might have silent reflux tp go to a ENT, he stuck the scope down my nose and said it was silent reflux, he gave me a few options, one of which was prilosec, so I started slowly only 1 pill which helped but I still had problems so after a few months of that I started 2 pills a day, then I noticed I was having some stomach issues and I could feel something come up my throat once in awhile, so i thought let me cut back to 1 pill, when I did that it eased my stomach issues.  So I stayed with that for a few months then it started coming up my throat again more and more, the breathing was still a problem, so i decided enough of this, so I weined myself off, when I did that I noticed I slowly got better all the way around.  Also a biggie while I was taking the prilosec every morning I would wake up with my tongue plastered to the roof of my mouth and my face was so dry, after getting off the pills I noticed my face was no longer dry and my tongure wasn't plastered to the roof of my mouth anymore, my mouth in the morning s is a little dry but nothing like it was, it was just awful before.  So I think maybe when people have these problems the pills might be ok for a few months but then they start causing to many problems and it is time to stop.  it took a good 3 months for my stomach to get back to normal, I still have the breathing problems but it is ever so slowly getting better

      That's interesting. I have been wondering about proton pump inhibitors for a while as doctors keep wanting to give me them. I tried them for a few weeks but they really didn't work for me. Although I only tried them for a few weeks. Due to the fact that PPIs decrease stomach acid production and I have low stomach acid, I didn't want to make my problem worse but then I learned that once you come off PPIs the stomach acid would actually increase. So it's food for thought (excuse the pun). Thanks so much for taking the time to write your story. I noticed mine every time I drank white wine. I felt like I had asthma symptoms but by the next morning they were gone. A few months later though after binging on chocolates and wine and champagne coming up to Christmas and new year I found myself not being able to take a deep breath. Since then I have been really struggling with my breathing and have even had to stop working as it got so bad. That was 14 months ago. I am trying to figure out all the do's and dont's and have had many tests which have come back negative except for having erosions in my stomach and the SIBO breath test showing a slight bacterial overgrowth. The specialist won't prescribe me with RIFAXIMIN (the drug of choice) as too expensive compared with metronidazole although I said I would pay for it. On the nhs there is no way of doing that though. However, you can be treated with natural antibiotics which I have been doing. It worked amazingly well for a while and then symptoms returned once I stopped the treatment. I believe that my diet wasn't quite right so now I have to treat it again and get the diet but right. Plus yeast overgrowth is an issue did me too and gut Dysbiosis. So as you can see I have a very complicated case but I know healing also takes time. I can follow any protocol to sort this out, it's just knowing which one to follow!
