I just received the resukts of my rapid spit tests, manometry and impedance tests all at once. They're all clear, but my LPR continues and is worsening greatly. I figured out something important. My symptoms can change in a matter of minutes based on whether or not I use Gaviscon Advance. They're equally distressing, but I keep bouncing between them, I just have no idea why:
With Gaviscon Advance:
- Extremy tight throat (much less mucus)
- More burping
- Hurts/hard to swallow
Without Gaviscon Advance:
- Thick, heavy amounts of post nasal drip
- Difficulty breathing
- Tight chest
- Some difficulty swallowing (no pain)
A single gulp of alkaline water can bring in the mucus/tight chest/breathing problems on in seconds, but Gaviscon Advance sometimes takes a few uses to make things change. Why would 2 things reknowned for LPR treatment make me worse in different ways?!
Also I wake up perfectly fine in the morning, until I swallow, which kick-starts the symptoms. No clue why, especially since the evidence says I don't have reflux. Please help me!
