I turned 40 in August and had my 1st baby in March. Toward The end of my pregmancy I would get a strange sensation of a tingling feeling in my chest and throat as I put it down to Braxton hicks. I've had acid indigestion and acid coming up into the throat off and on through the years but never enough to warrant meds as it would disappear with otc tabs. I've had a cold feeling in my throat off and on too and sometimes have had a feeling of a tight chest and coughing plus sinus, phlegm and feeling bunged up. I have also woken with a sore throat quite a lot over the years. The only time I can remmember not waking was when I did a juice detox and a paelo style diet for a period of time. So a month or so ago I got a bad cold with a horrible cough then a week later after binging on chocolate I got acid reflux since then i have had the weird sensation I had during the latter part of pregnancy which is worse at night and waking with a sore throat. My chest feels tight and asthmatic (I'm not asthmatic), cold feeling in throat and lots of gurgling in my tummy. I find it a horrible feeling. I have been researching and kind of come to the conclusion this is silent reflux and I have had it for years but never treated it. So I'm so scared now. I'm trying to get healthy again. Have lapsed since baby takes a lot of my time. I prefer natural healing and have looked at supplements but all advise against use when breastfeeding. I've ordered dropping acid book, started cutting processed food, sugar, dairy and spicy and fat foods (ar triggers for me), have had kinesiology session, osteopathy for back which I think bf has put out of whack, doc has prescribed omeprazole (although would rather not take given side effects), drinking lots of alkaline water of 7.8, drinking ginger and manuka honey tea, chamomile tea and gaviscon.
Have read various things this could be related as to why I have had this latest attack so bad which could be eostregen low due to bf, vitamin b low, hiatil hernia from pregnancy, stress and lack of sleep from a demanding baby, also, was having numerous rows with partner!
It's been 2 weeks now and I have had no relief. Will try the DA book diet when it arrives. I'm just petrified i have had this unknown and it's been slowly killing me. I'm a new mum and want to see my daughter grow up! Have a doc appt but not until the 21st oct. Just want to feel well again. My body aches with the hormones plus I'm getting anxiety each night when I get the stinging feeling. Feels like i have acid vapours in my airways.
