I was getting a lot of heartburn, and so my doctor put me on Omeprazole for 2 months, 40mg for 1 month and 20mg afterwards. I had awful pains in my leg on the higher dose but stuck it out, and to a lesser extent on 20mg. I finished the course 2 weeks ago and have not gone back to the doctor as I would like to manage this myself, however I have been getting heartburn again, and also a lot of mucus and throat clearing, which I now understand can be caused by reflux. (I have post nasal drip and use a prescribed spray, but this seems different). I have adjusted my diet, am not overweight and drink alcohol only occasionally. I haven't had any investigative procedures and would like to avoid them if possible. I have heard of alternate treatments to PPI with no side effects. Can anyone advise on natural and medication treatments other than PPIs? Thanks
