Known as SILENT REFLUX, causing your voice to become deep and sometimes can only speak in a whisper. Common Symptoms are; a lump in the throat; post nasal drip; feeling of choking and sometimes chronic irrtating cough etc.
I have been on SOMAC for 7 years and when in UK this year I expereinced the severe post nasal mucus running down the back of my throat and loss of voice. Continually spitting and 'snorting' out the clear fluid I sort help with a UK Doctor who told me it was a 'virus' and to let it take it's course. Chemists suggested it was sinus.
On returning to OZ I sort help from my doctor (Asian) who entered into his computer "Sticky Throat" - and put me on antibotics (worse thing for reflux) after numerous blood tests, xrays, scans, and ENT specialist and an endoscope they now say it is Silent Reflux: Remedy: 40 mg of Somac a day!!! This is what I was already taking!!!
The internet and forums like this have helped me stabilize the condition and I have sort help from a German born Chemist and a Naturopath. The chemist suggested to take a tablet containing Betaine Hydrochloride 650mg and Pepsin (1:10000 Parcine (31.5mg) The prescription medicines have stripped the body of my good enzymes and bacteria causing the food to still be in the gut fter 13 hours of fasting.
I refused the alternat prescription medicine (another ppi) my doctor prescribed and have altered my diet. The medicines the Naturopath has also help.
I now eat mainly vegetables and fruit - definately nothing fried and no sugar/coffee/tea/milk etc
I'm open to all suggestions of help to keep my voice normal and acid levels down;
Would also like any information regarding if an A Negative blood type does not produce very much HCL; where as a positive blood type produces more???
