I am wondering if anyone can offer advice. I have acid reflux or silent reflux as I do not get heartburn, and I have had a sore throat and bloating for a bout a year with bad taste in mouth in the morning. I could not tolerate PPIs they gave me awful side effects, so I take Ranitidine and Gaviscon advance at night as I have bad reflux then Lately I have been getting a feeling of a lump in my throat ( comes and goes,) which is I am told , globus possibly caused by muscles performing incorrectly because of the reflux ( I am having a barium meal test to check this out,dont know when. Also have developed over last few days a slight cough more a tickle but very irritating which may be the acid. Can anybody advise I try not to eat too near bedtime and have slightly raised the bed, Do people find that diet really helps I am still drinking alcohol maybe half a glass a day but probably eating the wrong things although I dont eat huge amounts. I am on a mild anti depressant which has helped my ibs which preceded the acid reflux. I was told the op for acid reflux was probably not a good option for me, my specialist says that it often doesnt work for very long. This is a long moan but its getting me down a bit also crashed my car last week and I think the stress of that is contributing. Hope you all manage to have a good Christmas!
