I've just finished week 1 on lansoprazole after trying 5weeks of omeprazole with no change. I thought I'd noticed a little improvement but yesterday and today I seem to have gone downhill again. I know its early days especially as my symptoms are more like LPR which don't always react so well to PPI's (if at all) but what's really getting me down is how tired I feel all the time. I'm having some blood tests tomorrow, mainly to check for iron deficiency but this tiredness started with my reflux symptoms, before the PPI's, so I cant blame it on that. If I did have a deficiency it would be a big coincidence for it to have started with the reflux so I'm not holding up much hope. I've had a sore throat now for months so I'm not sure if my body is just wiped out having to deal with constantly trying to repair my throat or if this is triggered by the anxiety this is giving me. I seem to sleep ok (no insomnia etc) but I'm at my wits end for what to do. Does anyone else with LPR get the tiredness? If this is a fairly normal symptom at least it might ease my worry!
