i would realy value any comments on this subject. :!:
My experience has been as follows:
I am a 47year old female.
I have suffered for years with thinking i must be a pig as every time i eat i need to burp, big painful burps, over the years these have become progresivley worse and includes reflux and hard to swallow food/drink, and finally after much nagging from my family decided to see my GP (made easier because i was seeing him about deppression, IBS[take mebeverine], and kidney pain/blood in urine) i thought i may as well get this seen to at the same time. Even cleaning my teeth will make me burp!
October i had a six week course of Lanzoprazole 30mg felt ok, sore throat and tongue(red raw) a hard cough at night as well, drinking bottles of honey and lemon to soothe the throat, started to bloat in the tummy region, great the acid in my throat had gone still burping horrendously. When the course finished within 3 days my throat was burning again, back to GP as he said. He arranged for a endoscopy to be done on the 21st of December, finding :Hiatus Hernia, Gastritis and Oesophaegitis,
I thought great now all we need to do is get rid of these, HA HA!!
I have been given another six weeks of Lanzoprizole told to take Gaviscon whenever needed and see how it goes. Well i have taken about 3 weeks of tablets and i am in agony, bloated tummy, sore burning red mouth, throat,tongue, i sleep for about 2 hours at night before being woken up coughing, my mouth so sore and dry, i have takent to sucking a honey and lemon anticeptic sweet at night (in the hope i might choke on it!!)
I am sat here now with a cold cup of tea, because i dread drinking it warm as it will burn, i cant tolerate anything in the slightest bit salty, toothpaste burns like mad, ive even tried green tea and peppermint tea. Today i havent taken Lanzoprozole yet and i feel i dont want to, to see if the throat/tongue improves however i dread the acid reflux, sicky burps coming back.
Anyone had similar to this and anyone got any idea what to do to stop it im so fed up with it.
