Hello everyone my name is Lancie, I'm a female and 59 years old.
I begun to have problems with my throat over a year ago. I did not say anything to my doctor until 6 months ago, because I keep clearing my throat and it is always horse, but the last 6 months it has gotten worse, I hate to eat anything or even take my medication, it seems to hang in my throat.
So after eating, or taking meds, I keep clearing my throat and try to bring "something" up. Talking makes it worse. Finally I talked to my doctor and he looked at my throat and told me he saw a lot of sinus drip, I got Clariton, it didn't do anything, than Allegra, no results. After googling my problem I saw that many people seemed to have the same problem, and Gerd, Hiatal Hernia came up. I have had these problems in the past so I bought Pepcid AC, I take it twice a day, but nothing, it is getting worse. Yesterday I tried to clear my throat again after eating and suddenly
some "digested" food came up, it looked like "slime". After that my throat was burning and I just about lost my voice. I gave up cold water, drinking luke warm water now, it seems better. I do not drink Sodas of any kind, no Alcohol etc. I am down to 1 cup of coffee, because of the acid, eat less, because it bothers me and have lost about 15 pounds this last year. I am not over-weight, if anything need to stop loosing weight.
I am thinking of trying "The Purple Pill", but will make an appointment this Monday with my doctor. I have been reading everything from all of you, some of the terms I don't understand, but likely as I get more involved, I will understand everything you share.
Thank you for having me, I'm so glad I found this group.
Have a wonderful rest of the day,
