Good morning, I would just like to get a little info on some other long term effects of reflux other than the usual heartburn from anyone willing to share their story with me. I have had horrific acid reflux since tge start of 2016, I mean I get bad heartburn minimum 5 times a day. I never bothered with the doctor until later on in the year who put me on Lansoprazole 30mg (which have killed the heartburn completely) and have had an endoscopy I have a hiatus hernia. I am fine with all of this but there's something that I would like to know if anyone else is experiencing. A short time after I started to suffer with the heartburn I started to develop the urge to cough upon exhale. Not every exhale, but some, sometimes seems to depend on position I am in. Anyway, shortly after that developed I started feeling like my airways were restricting towards the end of a breath out. Now what I have after all the time with untreated heartburn is a slight wheeze, a minor whistle when I exhale, all the time. It's never not there. My breathing in general is fine, the doctor sent me for a chest X-ray of which I had 2 in 2016 both normal and says my chest sounds clear but the wheeze is there. Also tried me on an inhaler which did nothing. I'm just wondering if anyone else has this wheeze and cough at all? Any input will be greatly appreciated thank you
