I have been suffering from a sore throat since the beginning of 2014, in the last 2-3 weeks it's become much worse.. almost like a very hot burn in my throat and at the back of my mouth. I also have a disgusting taste in my mouth.
During this time I have been experiencing stomach aches. No sickness or bowel problems.
I went to the doctors today expecting to be given antibiotics for something like Strep Throat so I was quite surprised to be told no and given Omeprazole.
I don't smoke, I very rarely drink alcohol and I never drink tea or coffee (water only!), I don't eat spicey foods.. my only vice is chocolate and sweet stuff. I had noticed a link between sweet foods and the stomach ache in the past few days. Oh.. I do eat a lot of tomatoes too.
I am not overweight. I do eat late at night because I work 4.30pm - 8.30pm at night.
I don't have heartburn (only when pregnant!) and I'm not a burpy/gassy person either.
If it matters, I have suffered with IBS for years and years (although this seems to have gone away since I had my second baby a year ago, this could well be temporary relief) and I have sticky blood (Antiphospholipid Antibodies)
So is this really Acid Reflux?
I really did think I'd be sorted with a course of antibiotics..the thought of these symptoms being a long term thing is a little worrying.
