Hello everyone, sorry for bad typing grammar tired atm please read, i used to never be able to burp sense i was a baby. However, last 8 months had chronic indigestion mucus and fatty greasy stools. Been tested for every other possible disease came back negative.  I was tested for chronic severe low vitamin d which i read can cause LPR. mine was 14 recommended is 50 ng/ml. after taking 4000 iu of vitamin d i finally got normal stools again well way closer and solids after months.

My main thing now is i keep burping worse after eating just when exhaling even when mouth closed i feel burps and i started burping after my life of not being able too now i get small burps then feel like air is still trapped also throat soar irriated at top near uvula feels like its sticky and i notice it like i feel it hanging there or im hypersensitive but i get burps and that ues muscle vibrations just from breathing an hour after eating or so too. i also have tinnitus and ear pressure which i read can be caused by GERD/GORD which can be caused by vit D difficiency. Wondering if i take them for a month all my symptoms will vanish but been dealing with these stomach and throat problems for a long time i even thought i had candida overgrowth as i have exzema and dry skin worse than i had b4 also tested h pylori and negative and stds negative  and ct scan of abdomen to pelvis no ulcers.  every time i close my mouth when its open it burps and throat feels like bubble in it when i lay down and breath through mouth i get throat popping sensations close it i dont had nasalscopy said it looked fine everywhere too 

my chloride level is 105 and all other blood test results normal just tired of this constant tinnitus head pressure i get 24 7 and burping as well as feeling im chocking on uvula sometimes i never have a BITTER taste in my mouth or regurgitation which makes me think its not REFLUX if i dont have acidic taste or regurgiation. i was getting bronchospasms for a  short time in that 8 months too but those stopped around when i started taking vit D supplaments and drinking vegtable juices like kale 

also worried though because mt urine has particles that are white in it too yet urine tests showed normal and healthy along with the no stds

Other symptoms i stillhave after 8 + months irritated bubble feeling in throat ENT said i have deviated uvula. but no abscess etc was formerly diagnosed chronic laryngitus and rhinitus. not allergic to anything

my uvula always feels irritated and nothing makes it go away  too  i did

    Do you get tired during the day if you stop your normal activities?

    Do you get tired when driving a car after an hour or so and have difficulty staying awake?

    Do you get a headache sometimes especially in the morning?

    Do you snore?

      I am always tired even after 10 hours of sleep. I never snore been told by family even now. I wake up and throat is at sorest. Let me guess you think sleep apnea? Can I have it without snoring? I don't snore at all. Also esophagus makes vibrating sounds when opening my mouth or just drinking water or breathing I never drink alcohol, coffee , teeth , carbonated drinks , only drink water and gaterated g2 for electrolytes. I thought I could have sleep apnea to was supposed to get tested but it would cost 1500$.

      I have sleep apnea and I don’t snore. The omly significant symptom is daytime tiredness. 

      SA can make easily managed lower relux into unmanageable upper reflux. I can count at least 6 doctors and 1 reflux specialist that assured me that it is not possible for refux to get into sinus sreas and affect your ears and eyes. And yet it does if you have sleep apnea. 

      My guess is that everyone with upper Reflux has SA. 

      I am waiting for rhe medical industry to discover this!

      A sleep study is very cheap. The SA machine is probably up around the price you quote. 

      The gasping that happens for people with SA pumps up the reflux material and gives sumptoms like what you have. 

      My guess is that doctors have no idea with SA and reflux and you need to make it happen yourself. 

      80%of SA victims don’t know they have it. It can easily reduce your life span by 10 years. 

      10 years of untreated SA does more damage than 10 years of chain smoking cigarettes. 

      Elevate your bed head, take ppi’s, don’t eat brfore going to bed, use a Cpap machine and life will be good.

      We just got new insurance and my uncle is actually Director of Sleep nih told him my symptoms he referred me to sleep study. i have it next weekend. to be honest i did some research and now think all my symptoms are from Sleep apnea i am overweight too which causes SA. i will let you know if they say i have SA then how long does it take for LPR gerd gord and sinus issues take to go away with treatment of cpap? i also feel like bubble in my throat all the time kind of like mucus but when i move my mouth or breath i can make mucus popping sound or its UES i dont know however i do not have bitter taste in my mouth nor regurgitation just constant excessive burping. and never used to be burp i am also chronically tired as i mentioned above. sorry if i repeated anything

      Also if you treat SA properly if your overweight lose weight and use CPAP if needed can you make it so that 10 years of life span reduction is null back to normal if reduced only had symptoms 8 9 monhts and had many ct scans etc all fine

    Oh boy! You make me feel good my friend!!!!  If its any help? Theve been treating me for acid reflux for years! Only to discover I have low acid!!!!!, I burp, a lot, my throat is always sore, green mucous in the morning, no appetite! Because scared of eating, only feel hungry after a beer. There's a big debate at the moment regarding CBD ( pure legal HEMP / Cannabis) people are campaigning for it to be Perscribed on the NHS. But the big pharmaceutical companies are trying to shut it down, Google it! Simple CBD! Draw your own conclusion.
