Hi i was diagnosed with Gerd 2 years ago

Been on and off ppis since.

I have decided to have the surgery .

I was told i had short segments baretts of 3cm

I had a demeester score of 20 on my ph study

I am asking anyone thats suffers the same

have you had a tongue symptoms

Since all this started for me my tongue has been white with a yellow coating at the back

With a tingling burning sensation .

This is my main symptom now .

Is this maybe from the ppis or frim the acid coming into my mouth

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks for the reply Dean.

      The tongue symptoms panicked me at first i also gotbadly depressed.

      So for me i am putting it down to a combination of ppi use and the acid #]

      Because before i had a normal tongue until i got sick with this .

      and not matter what i do scrape or anything it comes back .

      I drink a bit but not much and dont smoke
