I think the drugs make us work. I'm drug free of any acid reducing meds. My opinion is to start trying natural stuff like DGL licorice. Try sleeping only on your left side as heartburn won't come in your throat if you sleep that way.

There are many other ways to get the help you need naturally. I had mild heartburn over a year ago. I took Prilosec for about 9 months and now I'm cursed with nasty awful GERD!

i though that drugs make it worse from day one as when i stop taken ppi i get 5 times the full sha bang, but i dont get heart burn cause of ppi,s but i get all the other stuff that comes with it acid burning which is driving crazy. i went for a kinsology test months ago and she said i am allergic to wheat and chocolate and some other things so now i,m thinking it could stem from eating so i might go back and see her if she can help. as i eat cereal every day now for 2 years but i never bothered before. i wish i woke up tommorrow and it was gone :(

I find drinking aloe vera good for a burning throat. I also find that getting nervious or stressed makes things worse so try to relax.

i know its not good getting stressed but when you have a acid taste in your mouth, and when you swallow its like swallowing acid it kind on starts getting you down, a bit, i been fine on ppi,s up till last week it started with the odd acid in the throat on the afternoon but all this weekend it has been really bad from friday through to tuesday, its been a bit better today. :-) i,ve been drinking that aloe vera since last week

Hi everyone, I found this place today. I have suffered with throat problems for years and it was about 2 years ago that my doctor thought it could be due to acid(dont know for sure) I get this awful burning/damaged like feeling at times this is the worst symptom. Im also on allergy meds. I have post nasal drip, am shattered alot of the time. They sent me for the 24hour probe but I couldn't tolerate it! eyes   I have in the past had H pylori, they treated this with antibiotics, I ve had globus feelings, allsorts of different throat feelings over the years but the damage/burning is the worst, can anyone help me please? Im on nexium. Thanks all Michelle
