Sore Throat for 3 months?

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I found this forum as I was googling about my sore throat (I hope I live long enough to post this, as it says I am dead already, haha)

I saw an ENT PA last week and he said the cause of my sore throat for the last 3 months is silent reflux and started me on Omeprazole twice a day, 40mg.

It's a week tomorrow and there is no change.. does anyone have any experience with this?

My throat hurts, my ears feel 'full' and uncomfortable and this sucks.. could it really be just silent reflux? Blood work is fine, and he did stick the little camera up my nose and down my throat..

I was drinking water with lemon all day, every day for the last few years and I have stopped since last Wednesday, to see if that would help, but nope. 😦

Anyone have any input?

Thanks in advance.
