A little over a month ago I started feeling nausious after eating a meal and had a few dizzy spells. I have also had problems swallowing in the past but really chalked it up to eating too much too fast. My primary DR. did basic blood work, etc and everything came back normal. Went to the Gastro doctor and he prescribed nxium and am scheduled for an endoscopy next week. Ended up not getting the nexium due to the cost but did get a 14-day Prilosic generic over the counter which I finished today. This has helped as I have not had any other symtpoms. However, earlies this week I devloped a slight fever, aches and the chills which all went away pretty much overnight. I did not have a runny nose or cough. The next day I noticed my throat was really sore and seems to have gotten worse thru the week. Today I noticed my tongue has some gunky looking white stuff on it towards the back. Has anyone experienced the same symptoms and is this associated with GERD? Any suggetions to alleviate the pain? I don't recall ever having a sore throat this bad.
