I am not sure whether i have lpr or gerd. maybe i have both. My story started on july when i constantly was feeling a lump in my throat, this feeling started after i had a round of antibiotics to treat strep throat. so i went to my regular doctor and she said that maybe i was having silent reflux so she told me to take a 14 day of omeprazole. I only took it for 7 days and stopped because that cause me digestive issue which i didn't had before, I was bloated after eating, burping all the time and actually start having heartburn which didn't have before taking omeprazole. 4 days after i stopped omeprazole my stomach was burning, nauseaus had a sour stomach , I couldn't eat anything, now i was having acid reflux symtoms, The nauseous, sour stomach and burning last 3 months but my acid coming up into my esophagus didn't went away. I am now regurgating up to my throat every day, i feel something sour/bitter taste in my month and burning throat minutes after eating, but don't have the normal heartburn, but i do have chest pain. in the middle of August i had an endoscopy and show i had esophagitis level I. after that endoscopy doctor told me to try zantac, that made me dizzy so i stopped the doctor told me to just do a diet. i did the diet , no spicy food, no acidic food, low fat food , no coffee, alcohol, cocholate. but nothing worked. I wast still regurgating after every meal. then last month i start even having sore throat alot so i went to another doctor and he gave me dexalaprazole i took it for three weeks and didn't feel any difference, it even make my throat more sore and was having for chest pain. So i switch to nexium and i been on it for almost 3 weeks too but is not helping me with the regurgation i get after eating. i don't have sore throat anymore but still have burning throat in the mornings and checst pain sometimes. had anyone had similar symtoms and what helped? could this be jsut lpr or both(gerd and lpr) i don't get the usual hearburn, i mean once in a while i do get it but not every day. my issue is more regurgation after every meal but not food is feels like a bitter/ sour feeling and sometimes burning inmy throat. please anyone who had this or know someone who had it what helped?
