I use to have a burning in my chest but that went away....

Only my throat and mouth hurts now....

How can this be?

I had nissen about a month ago. It fixed stomach burning pains but my throat and mouth continues to hurt....

Hey Max,
I wish I knew the answer to your questions.  Do be sure to ask your Dr. this question and share with all of us what his opinion.

Hi max

I wonder if your sore mouth/throat is caused by something other than GERD/LPR since the nissen has fixed your stomach burn. You mentioned in another post that you have a coated tongue & my immediate thought was a yeast infection. Could you perhaps get your DR to take some mouth/throat swabs to make sure that there are no bacterial/viral nasties causing havoc with your recovery.

Take care & I hope you get some answers soon.

Hi Lynda,

That's what they initially thought it was but when multiple doctors looked at it it wasn't as white as they thought it would be. It's red on the side and front tip of the tongue.
