For the past few days I get a runny nose every time that I eat something. Can it be because my throat is irritated, I also feel more pain in my throat when I eat, and I feel like is more irritated, although I take a ppi in the morning and zantac at night.

I also started to use gaviscon after each meal. I've been using gaviscon, carafate and maalox for the past nine months every day, 1-3 times a day. How dangerous is to use these for long time with my ppi.
I've read that they damage your kidney, anybody has been using them for so long?

I can't answer about your meds but i have reflux that goes up to my naso-pharynx. This means it shoots even past your throat. I don't think the runny stuff is reflux but I do think our bodies respond to it by creating extra mucous as a defense. I've always had a "flooding" sensation and have to blow my nose after each coughing attack.

That would be reflux/LPR post nasal drip. I go through a box of tissues each week.

Hi dany,
Before my surgery my nose plugged up whenever I ate.  My GI at that time told me it wasn't possible to get nasal symptoms from reflux.  He told me what I was experiencing was not happening.  I didn't stay with that GI doc for long.  It's frustrating to work with someone who doesn't listen and has a preconceived notion of what can and can't happen.
Thankfully, it doesn't happen post-Nissen.
Good luck!
Best wishes,
Denise

If its reflux, why I get the runny nose only when eating. and it stops after I'm done eating. I don't think its acid that comes up only when eating, I think its because of esophagus the irritation. This would be really scary if the acid comes up every time that I eat :(((

well i have cobble-stoning in my nasopharynx (behind my nose) and that can only come with reflux.

I don't honestly know what causes it.  I'm just saying that it's better.  I agree...it's not likely that EVERY time you eat you'd get reflux.  Do you have any allergies?

I have no allergies, so I'm sure is because of the reflux, but its really hard for me to accept every new symptom that I get with this crappy diseases. I realized that if I eat creamy soft food my nose doesn't run that much

dencha thank you so much for helping me figure this out, so your runny nose stopped after you got the surgery?

Hi Dany,
What stopped was the immediate stuffiness that occurred when I got a reflux episode after eating or anytime. 
 
I did a little searching, and this sounds more like what's happening to you:
gustatory rhinorrhea:
n. Watery nasal discharge associated with stimulation of the sense of taste.
 
Here are some links with information:
 
 
Check them out and see if any of it seems to fit.
Good luck!
