After having a persistant runny nose, chronic coughing, excess phlegm in chest, followed by a very sore throat and ulcers, I recently was diagnosed with LPR a few weeks ago.
I've been placed on Nexium for 6 weeks (twice a day) and the generic GERD diet. My ulcers cleared quite quickly after 2 weeks of the nexium, andolex rinse, and a steroid ulcer ointment.
Despite being extremely strict with following the diet and taking my PPI 30 minutes before meals, my symptoms of excess mucus, runny nose, breathing issues and chronic cough have not subsided. I make sure to try and finish my dinner earlier in the day, and I have recently began drinking 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp of honey in warm water before my meals.
I am beginning to worry as despite the throat ulcers being gone, my other symptoms are raging just as bad as they were before i was diagnosed and changed my diet/ started taking nexium. Additionally to these symptoms I have begun to develop a hoarseness in my voice and bowel issues.
my ENT has referred me to a Gastro specialist next week but I'm curious to see if anyone else with LPR has had a correlation to bowel or gut issues and if so... how you resolved it?
Any additional advice for me would be greatly appreciated! I seem to be struggling to fight this awfully depressing condition and could use any small tips from anyone.
Thanks in advance.
