I've posted here before but for an entirely different reason so I'm hoping to get help with this. My boyfriend suffers from GERD from what we are told after a nose scope. But the thing is is that it's not a daily thing. Its like every 3-6 months he has like 3-4 days with really severe reflux. Today is day 2 and he's been coughing and just overall can't eat because his throat is so irritated. I've been giving him 2 zantac every 4 hours which seems to be the only thing to clear it up, but it never works quickly. He's drinking aloe juice but I don't really think any of this stuff works. It seems like there is no onset. He loves spicy food and can eat it all the time. This just seems to happen at random.
Does anyone else have attacks like this? I just want to make sure that's what it is. The ENT said it was but didn't do much past that. If so, is there anything that can help this severeness? I even took him to the hospital once and they gave him a prescription antacid and lidocaine and it was just a waste of time.
Hoping tomorrow is much better. I have anxiety myself and I am so worn down worrying about him but sucking it up to do what I can.
