Does anyone have lots of digestive issues with a post nasal drip? I noticed in March, right after I started having seasonal allergy symptoms, I started having to belch a lot. Since April I've had other health problems and I wasn't sure if the stomach issues were part of that or because of a post nasal drip. I'm pretty sure my apartment, which I moved into last year, has a mold problem which might be why my PND has been worse this year than ever before.
I also feel nauseous a lot and food doesn't seem as appealing as it used to, but at the same time I'm having to eat more than ever. I have to eat around every two hours or I'll feel lightheaded and have a lot of gas. Could this be caused by an increase in stomach acid from a PND?

Also every now and then, not so much anymore, I get a waxy taste in my mouth. Anyone else have this?

You might be suffering from silent reflux. Try some over the counter antacids for three weeks and see if you feel better. Then see the doctor if it helps.

Thanks. Actually I was prescribed an antacid back in June and it didn't help, actually might've made me feel more nauseous if anything.

I'd go to a Gastroenterologist and get some testing too.

Yeah, I had a gastro appointment scheduled but they had to reschedule it and said it would probably be after Christmas, so I decided to just start going to an internal medicine clinic. I haven't seen a gastroenterologist but the doctors I've seen have said they don't see a lot of symptoms of any specific GI issue. I have a lot of general symptoms that don't fit in with anything like IBS, Crohn's, ulcers, etc.
The last doctor I saw said I might be getting gas because of a slight case of lactose intolerance, or because I have started eating more vegetables and other foods with fiber. But I also talked to someone on another forum who has a post nasal drip from mold exposure (I had mold in my apartment) and has a lot of gas. Also, a doctor I saw a few months ago said swallowing mucus can really irritate your stomach.
I was taking an Allegra every day and I stopped, but I've started again and in the past few days I haven't had many problems with gas. But I'm not sure if it's because of that or because I haven't been eating as many vegetables.

It does get pretty confusing. I have silent reflux which was set off by a virus. Never heard of such a thing. Hope to feel better soon. Am taking omeprazole. Also have asthma but this is not asthma because of all the belching and feeling of fullness in the stomach. Have some gas pains too.

o vey iz me!

I just saw your post and it sounds exactly like me! I don't notice any post nasal drip, but have the exact stomach issues only during the spring and fall. Sick of it ! Stomach acid and slight nausea that gets worse if I don't eat frequently so now I am gaining weight too. Tried sinus pressure medication, anti-acids with very slight improvement. Did you find an answer ?
Thank you !

If you do have allergies that means you have a lower immune system than most. It is not as bad as some cancer sufferers or AIDs sufferers but it is real. So if there is a stomach or intestinal problem going around, you might be picking it up.

Also eating a lot of veggies can cause a gassy problem. It's pretty confusing. Add veggies slowly, they say.

Hope you feel better.

if you go thru the motions of putting something in your mouth and/or swallowing, your stomach juices start flowing, getting ready for food. this is why you can't chew gum, etc before an endoscopy. so, yes swallowing mucus can irritate your stomach.
