The more I read about
all this GERD and LPR stuff the more confused I get. Why does it take so much longer to see results when it is LPR related. Also, I keep finding sites that say TOO LITTLE acid can cause the same symptoms!
I am on the 2 week diet and my lump in throat is better but I still have alot of stuff in my throat and hoarseness. I have been on nexium for 10 years and added the prilosec 3 weeks ago after having LPR symptoms since around March/April 2011. Before that, I had no GERD or LPR problems. Was diagnosed with GERD 10 years ago when I had a scope done and had to have my esophogus stretched and also found out I had hiatal hernia. I was able to get by on 40 mg nexium every other day until last fall had some GERD symptoms when I would exercise so Dr. told me to take nexium every day. It was a few months after that when I got a pretty bad upper respiratory infection and then the LPR started.
Could I be contributing to my problem by taking MORE of the nexium and now the prilosec 20 mg added in?
