I've been suffering from reflux for nearly a year now but it's been on and off and hasn't really responded to PPIs. I'm now off the PPIs altogether (and haven't noticed any worsening really) but in the last 3 months my symtpoms have changed and i'm getting a dull ache in the centre of my chest, which gets worse when i bend over. It's not much of an ache at all really but i do notice it. I still get occasional flare up for my reflux (which i seem to feel on one side only) and i feel as though i'm only able to swallow on one side of my mouth (but i think this is psychological because nothing is getting stuck). When i first got the dull ache i went back to my GP and she put me on 40mg daily omeprazole and i stopped drinking alcohol for the month. Then Christmas came and i'd finished the course of PPIs and i was drinking over Christmas. I only drink at the weekend and it's usuallyy a glass of wine on a friday and a sat, and 4 single measures of spirits over the whole weekend at most. I've now stopped drinking again and will see how it goes. does anyone have similar symptoms? I avoid food well before bed time and chew slowly, etc. but don't know what else to do.
