Constant phlegm

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi all over the last few months I have had intermittent indigestion with the odd bout of a burning sensation in the throat and sometimes a little bit of sick coming up! (Sorry) 

Over the last month I have also had an intermittent sore throat and a need to clear my throat because of mucus at the back of the throat. It’s teally getting me down.

My uncle who is a retired ENT surgeon says it sounds as if I have reflux and the phlegm is as a result of the acid from my stomach 

Has anyone else experienced this and what can I do as don’t really want to take medication xx

    Yes, I have is reflux!

    I am not sure it is acid though...

    I had a phmetry test and the findings revealed that I have non acidic reflux ph=7 ( much saliva) and a little bile reflux.

    I am taking occasionally riopan gel , it helps me.. it is not a PPI drug, it is considered safe and mild for protection of stomach

    Me too!!!!!!

    Struggled with this for years - constant clearing of my throat.

    I have a salt pipe which is very soothing. 

    All PPIs upset me & give me a pain in my side & nausea - what else is there that can possibly help?  I’m not sure doctors have any answers.
