Hi, I have today seen an ENT surgeon who has confirmed that i have LPR (silent reflux) which is giving me a sore / burning throat and roof of my mouth.
My gp had me on ppi drugs but they hadn't been doing anything for my symptoms which the surgeon said they probably won't do a great deal for your throat as such which is why you’re probably not seeing much change in your throat problems, he has asked me to still keep taking them as he wants me to try and keep the acid build up down.
I don’t have any other symptoms apart from my throat / mouth issue.
He has asked me to just take gaviscon advance 3 times a day as well as the ppi drugs, the ppi half an hour before i eat and the gaviscon about half an hour after i eat and last thing before bed.
My main question though is when i am best taking my ppi drug, up to now i have always been taking it first thing in the morning, i am starting to think that specifically for my throat issues its probably related to night time, meaning i maybe best taking the ppi before bed to try and limit the reflux at that time?
Can anyone tell me what they think?
