Had Grade 1 GERD but weird reflux symptoms after coronavirus what should I do?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hello, I'm 20 years old, I've had minor reflux for about 2 years, but I've been having weird and significantly worsened reflux problems after COVID for a while now. I had covid 3 months ago, I was vaccinated with sinovac so it wasn't too serious. I've had fevers for a long time like a little more than a week but mostly low fevers like 37.1-37.4 Celcius. On the third day of my covid I started to feel a very uncomfortable sensation in my throat, like there's some kind of lump or something stuck, it was also burning. After that 3 months have passed, I've already been to three doctors, everybody says I'm fine, my blood was fine, I've also taken Nexium and Pantodenk for a month, with maalox and a few other medicines. I've also had endoscopy and the doctor said that I have grade 1 GERD, he said that it's nothing serious, just something that needs attention time to time and generally good diet. Then I went to another doctor who basically told me that Coronavirus sometimes leaves such long term problems that need approximately 6 months to resolve and are generally nerve problems.

Now I realize that I COVID leaved heartburn problems and so on, and that it most likely is a post covid complication, but this is really annoying and worrying me. I've read up about reflux complications and am a little worried now. I'm worried that I might have LPR and I'm also worried that I might need a surgery to fix it if it doesn't resolve on it's own.

I've just interested if anybody have similar experience and if you can give me an advice of some kind.
