Hi there, I started with lpr back in November. After the ENT discovered inflammation in my throat I had a gastroscopy which showed oesophagitis and gastritis also Barretts. I was put on ppis - ending up on Nexium 20mg twice a day and Domperidone 4x per day and Gaviscon Advance. This seemed to work, and despite having stomach pain my throat symptoms got better and I was discharged from ENT. I had a follow up gastroscopy in April and this was also clear. Even though I don't like taking all the tablets, I thought that it was worth it for the healing.
At the beginning of June my throat and mouth started burning again, and I put this down to the fact that I had cut back on the Gaviscon. I upped the Gaviscon and things got better. Over the past few days I've felt the burning again and also felt really bloated.
I'm so depressed and scared. Just looking for similar experiences. I know it sounds overly dramatic but I'm terrified I have stomach cancer or something so any similar experiences will be greatly appreciated toout my mind back in order.
