Welcome new members...I would like to suggest that you start a new thread and introduce yourselves, as you are likely to get more responses.

It is great to find help off of old threads, but it is best to start new when you are looking for help.

Welcome aboard.

Hi - this is "kathincan" and I've never been in a chat room before, but I just woke up (5 am) and regurgitated a mouth full of burning bile, drank several mouthfulls of water, nearly died of the throat pain (exaggeration) and immediately Googled "Bringing up burning bile", and there it was, all you people with the same thing.  Previously I may have had a tiny bit of bile but never this much.  I take "Losec" for other stomach ailments so I took one of those and now, about 1/2 hour later, I'm registered into this chat room, and my throat is feeling some better.  I'd be scared to take vinegar!  I'll be calling my doctor first thing in the morning and will update you on what she tells me.  Actually I ate some Valentine candy last night and I think that must have caused it.

I have also had burning a burning throat after waking up from a deep sleep. My usual problem is GERD. I take Prilosec for the whole course and then the burning in my stomach returns. From reading your posts I will probably give up my tea drinking.

This is so nice to have a group that I can relate to about this GERD.

I was diagnosed with osophagitis with a moderatley large hiatel hernia about 15 years ago. I am a white male age 45. about 5 years ago at my local VA hospital I was diagnosed with barrets osophagus. I was asked to comeback once a year because I had abnormal cell growth in my osophagus and they wanted to test it every year.
I havn't been back but latley I have been waking up in the middle of the night with a burning throat and it doesnt seem to be because of stomach bile in my throat which i have had a lot of in the past. it feels like it is in my chest and throat I am assuming some type of inflamation.also I seem to have some type of irritable bowel it gets so bad at times that if I drink a small amount of water or eat a cracker i have to run to the bathroom. I heard from the gastrointestinologist that diagnosed me with osophagitis 15 years ago that upper GI medicine eventually damages the lower GI. Has anyone else had these types of problems?
I have an appointment with a gastrointestinologist in 2 weeks

New here, first post so go easy on me...

I started having stomach ulcers when I was 16. Actually let me rephrase that; I started before that but was only diagnosed and treated when I was 16, thereafter I was having hyperacidity and reflux so by the time I was 23 I was taking Losec 20mg daily and it's been doing wonders for me, I've been taking it for 15 years and it's been pretty consistent although there are still a few foods I have to stay away from. The oddest ones are mustard and ketchup, some tomato (spaghetti) sauces, anything spicy with any heat like even mild chili sauce.

I really have no questions for now, all I wanted to say was that there is hope, Losec changed my life, my appetite is better and I can eat a lot of stuff that I couldn't. I can even drink alcoholic beverages with little or no problems.

Oddly though, on the odd times when I've had mustard or chicken wings, and I wake up in the night with hearburn, I take a tums and it goes away but then it keeps coming back for as long as I keep taking tums (sometimes several days) to treat the symptoms. On the other hand if from the beginning I don't take any tums even though I have heartburn, the next day I'll be ok.

So I'm kinda wondering if calcium tablets nullify the effects of Losec.

Gallie, I've noticed that when i have a burning in my throat and i take a tums it seems to relieve the pain temporarly and then it seems like for days after i am suffering, I was wondering myself if tums is doing temp relief but giving me pain days after.

Hi everyone! Like most of you, sitting up late at night, stomach acid burned throat, pissed and in pain and looking for some answers. I have had this for about 10 years, Doctors just dance around the "Acid reflux" fire and their pills never make a big impact. I actually have been able to manage it and deal with it pretty good on my own. I read some people mention Vinegar, I am totally afraid to add an acid to an acid problem. I do an old fashioned heartburn remedy - Baking Soda and water! I get a small cup, put about a half a cup of water and a teaspoon of baking soda in it. Mix well, drink, then pace the room for about 10 minutes. When you’re done burping the ABC's forward and working your way back down you'll notice the pain is gone and your stomach is MUCH better off.

The problem I have been having lately is that I always went through stages. Noticeable upset stomach from heartburn that slowly gets worse (best time to take the baking soda), then I'll lie down (without taking the baking soda) and end up with a mild case of burned throat. Now I skip the first two and if I eat late (spicy), stressed, or anything else that would normally cause heartburn. I'll wake up with an advanced case of acid throat and it will hurt 10X worse than the good old days.

Baking soda still works best for me, even these bad outbursts are only manageable with Baking Soda (that I can find so far, always willing to try anything else - may try the vinegar just to see).

I hope my advice helps some people and maybe someone has had the evolution and discovered a better treatment than baking soda.

My throat was killing and I was willing to try anything. I was headed to the kitchen to do the vinegar thing when the word "pickle" popped in my head. Pickels sit in vinegar and probably are better tasting than a spoonful of raw vinegar. So I popped open a jar and ate a pickle. Instant relief and a nice late night snack. It worked for me, I'm off to bed now. Worked so well I registered to these foums so I could share. So if you're sitting there with a burning throat and an awful taste in your mouth... go eat a pickle. G'night and God bless!

Unfortunately I have suffered from acid reflux and the burning throat at night for years. I take 40mg of Nexium every night at dinner time and it does wonders for the heartburn. As long as I remember to take it I don't get any heartburn. As for the waking up with the burning throat, I have never found anything that helps. I try to take 2 tylonol or advil as soon as it happens and it does relieve the pain within 20 minutes. It is a very long, painful, 20 minutes but at least I do end up getting relief from it. Before doing this I use to suffer with it for hours. And if I went back to sleep I would wake up with it again in another hour or so. The tylonol or advil usually stop it from coming back in the same night. Hope this helps!

Hello everyone.  I'm new to this forum, however so far I finding this thread to be very helpful.  To be honest, I'm not sure what I'm experiencing.  I'm a 28 yr. old female who loves spicy foods, red wine and an occasional cigarette after a couple cocktails. Anyway, what brings me to this site (and hopefully this would encourage feed back) is tonight I experienced the worst burning sensation in my throat.  I'm prone to strep throat and losing my voice, but the burning sensation in my throat when I exhale is a feeling completely foreign to me.  Literally, I'm almost in tears.  At first, it felt like a cooling sensation as I inhaled through my nose and eventually it began to burn and the feeling got worse and worse especially when I breathed out.  How long does this burning sensation last? Also, the past couple months I've felt unusually nauseas after meals.  In posting my concerns with all of you, I am aware of the obvious- that I should consult with a doctor.  In fact, I plan to tomorrow morning because whatever this burning feeling is in my throat is pretty scary.  Am I alone in this feeling, is this acid reflux, am I going to be okay?   I'm greatful for any information and advice!

Welcome,
It does sound like you've got some acid troubles.
At the doctor's they'll ask you alot of questions about your symptoms.
If they need to do further testing you'll have these procedures done:
1. Barium swallow
2. EDG
3. Bravo
4. Stomach emptying (maybe)
5. Manometry test

I hope they find a solution for you.
Stick around, others will be by soon.

Just passing through.  Just found out from doctor I have a gerd problem.  All this seems complicated.  I've had burning throat for a long time.   I wake up flat on my back and soon my throat starts to burn.  It also happens at different times during the day.  I don't know anything about all the medicines used for this.  To cool the burn, I eat ice cream.  A spoonful  will usually do.  I keep ice cream in the frig just for that purpose.  Because when it starts to burn,  its unbearable.

Jack,
They usually give Nexium, Acephex, or prilocet(?) for the acid control.
Please ask a doctor about giving you medication for this burning feeling. If you let it go on too long you can damage your esophagus.

The doctor gave me OMEPRAZOLE 20mg and it seems to be very effective.

After reading everyone else's posts I figured that I would make one of my own. Unfortunately, I've had stomach issues for a long time now. I have regular heart burn, acid reflux, a peptic ulcer (w/ GERD) and I am lactose intolerant... good times. This morning I woke up with the horrible burning in the back of the throat and a slightly upset stomach, it was bad enough that I almost lost it and threw up, but having done that before I knew that it would just make things a whole lot worse. I had some soda and clam chowder last night (which I found out was made with a lot of milk / half and half mixed in) and I am pretty sure thats what caused this episode. I haven't had this happen to me for a while now. I keep a GI Cocktail on hand just in case of really bad stomach problems (something that the ER mixed up for me), but as bad as this is, its not nearly as bad as some of the other stomach pains that I've been through, so I decided not to take the cocktail for this. Instead I made one of my own, I had some antacids, which I took right away (although the doctor has me taking prilosec, which doesn't seem to help), then I took some left over throat spray from the strep throat I had a while ago and put a topical anesthetic (Lidocaine) in it and mixed well and sprayed my throat... which helped quiet a bit, but not as much as I had hoped. Then I got the bright idea to take some of my subuxone (narcotic pain killer, thebaine derivative, from opium), which is 40 times more powerful than morphine and taken sub lingually (which usually numbs my tongue and part of my throat in a non topical / local way) and finally that did the trick! You can get local / topical anesthetics and throat sprays over the counter, I'd definitely recommend to have something like that on hand for anyone who's gone through the burning pain of having stomach acid or bile rise up to the back of their throats and burn like the dickens...

Sometimes I think that taking all this stuff, like antacids, prilosec, etc, just masks the problem and then we think we are fine and start eating things that we enjoy but used to hurt us and are causing even more damage that the drugs are covering up. Which is something that I found to be true with pain killers in general. (old motorcycle accident), I was on them for 3 years and found that once I FINALLY got off them, things were worse in a lot of ways because I abused my body without really knowing the damage I was doing. That makes me wonder if the same thing applies for stomach medications or all medications, really. I know that antacids and prilosec control the amount of acid that your body produces, which can be a good thing, but then we start eating hot wings, or tomato sauces, or other things that used to bother us until it comes back even more severe... which in retrospect, seems a bit self destructive, but its nice being able to enjoy the good things in life, even if they aren't good for us...
maybe I'm just thinking about it too much... :)

Well, I see it as if it tastes good, it's bad for you.

You sound like you've got a bad case of GERD. Have you discussed surgery options with your GI?
I had the 270 wrap (Hill Procedure) done 12 days ago. It's not a very tramatic surgery. It was my first one and the recovery is not that bad. I needed pain killers for about two or three days off and on and then I was fine.
Best of luck

A GI cocktail is something they used to try in the ER to see if it helped the stomach pain and perhaps give a clue as to whether or not the problem was heartburn versus something else.



It is made of 15 ml of Maalox and Lidocaine gel and is not something that you would take to keep your GERD under control.



I think Joy has advised you well, see a GI Physician and look into the possibility of surgery as an option for your problems. JMHO



Take care,

Kitt

Hello, i'm new to the forum. I've had a burning pain in my throat for years and most of the time the pain progresses to by head as well. I went to many doctors, had MRI and EGG scans but hey couldn't find anything wrong . And because they couldn't figure out what was wrong with me they gave me many pills but none of them helped and some made it worse (resulting to stupor and not being able to walk normally, shuffling my feet like a zombie). I'm happy that I found this forum because I had given up on finding the cause for this awful pain, contributing it to stress, dry air, dehydratation, environmental factors and so on.
I know I have to go to doctor asap but as the family doctors are having a strike these days so I decided in the meantime to ask here - if there's no heartburn symptom (and acidic burps or breath) but still burning pain in the throat could it be GERD or pharyngitis/laryngitis? Someone here said that the cause of this may be LPR but the link she/he posted is dead.
Are the medical tests needed for the diagnosis of GERD the same as for EERD, Pharyngitis, Laryngitis?
P.S. I don't know if this is related but my brother also has throat pain but in his case he loses his voice or feels pain when he talks, while in my case talking/not talking is not related to the pain (maybe it's genetic)
