Mouth and throat feel burned/corroded

Posted , 4 users are following.

Lately i've been feeling throat hoarsness after eating, no matter what i eat or how much i eat. Also the back of my mouth and throat feel corroded (idk how else to word myself) by the acid. As if the acid is slowly "eating" the back of my mouth and swallowing even my saliva feels awful. It seems to get a bit better after i eat though. It's especially horrible after i wake up.

Does anyone else get this? If so, any tips on trying to soothe it?

     I would suspect that acid is coming up Into your mouth when you Are sleeping.

    Try eating less for supper and

     stop eating a few hours before bed. 

    I also sleep on a recliner. I sleep sitting up and usually start laying all the way back at two or three in the morning.

      Thank you Steve smile

      I used to try to sleep like that when i had nighttime sickness associated with GERD, but i couldn't go through it. I'll try again though. Thanks for the advice!

       You need a nice big lazy boy recliner  that  is soft and comfortable. And that you can sit straight up or laying flat in any angle in between. 

       Also sleeping with an empty stomach helps a lot. 

      Good luck.

       I don’t think three hours is long enough if you lay down right away. 

       That’s why I fall asleep sitting up in recliner. I begin to start laying flatter At two or three in the morning.

      I tried sleeping sitting up. It helped a great deal! I also take a little bit of sodium bicarbonate with water before bed and it also helps.

      thank you!

    Do you have chest pain and or a sick stomach accompanying this? Sounds like classic reflux, but maybe still go to the doc to rule out other possibilities? 

    For immediate relief I mix baking soda with some water and it helps greatly. Over the long term, diet change has been known to help drasticlly. Dairy, sugar, caffeine drugs and alcohol and acidic foods are horrible for reflux. Research diets for acid reflux and maybe see which one you feel would be most beneficial to you. There is medication for reflux but it’s often a short term bandage and not a permenant fix. Hope you can find some relief soon!

      Yes. I feel chest pain mostly down my breastbone, but it happens with other parts as well.

      My stomach gets upset at times too, but it's usually just pain or discomfort, no vomiting or the classic nausea.

      Do You, by any chance, know if fat has anything to do with worsening of GERD symptoms? Like when you buy a product and at the back it says how many grams of fat there is in the product

      I’m not 100% sure, but I do believe that if you are consuming a high fat diet (especially the fats found in processed and fast foods) that would definitely contribute to the worsening of symptoms. Iike i said, trial and error runs of diets would be beneficial to you I belive. Take care!

    Sorry, I don’t know how fat will affect gerd.  

     I kind of think that fat  in your diet satisfies your hunger, which means acid gets diluted as it works on the fat.    So maybe it would make things better.

     But who knows everyone is different. 

     You could try your own test to see how it is with a high fat diet and then try with low-fat diet.
