    Hi. Sorry ure not feeling yr best.

    Pls dont take it as preaching, but smoking is amongst the worst things for acid reflux.

    It could be the leading cause of yr reflux.

    Cut down and try to stop and also follow the life style and diet recommendations for gerd.

    I used to smoke 17yrs 20 a day. It was hard to stop but I did it.

    Good luck and hope ure feel better very soon 😀.

    Yes I get that when acid playing up and j just say smoking probably make acid worse that's the first question my doctor asked me if I smoked which I didn't because I stopped smoking years ago he also said don't let anyone smoke around you I'm not dictating to you just passing on what I've learned

    Hi Karen, I have the same problem along with acid reflux,  I to take med's for it, I don't smoke but have bad sinus's all my life, taking OTC at night when need is the only thing that helps, my GP told me to try it, and to answer your question I think acid reflux has a lot to do with it. xx
