Tonight after eating really healthy the whole day..I am experiencing headaches...ear pain...temple throbbing..throat burning...and tightness in my nose...not to mention stingy eyes:(
 
I go to my new GI on wednesday..I'm bringing in a list of my symptons and questions to ask him and to see how knowledgable he is with reflux and sinus/asthma being connected together.
 
If you guys have any advice on questions i could ask him..including this..and how to word it...i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much..
 
 
ps..does anyone else get these feelings..even when eating healthy?

yes,  I do, my ears get clogged, my jaw makes clicking noises, my nose gets dry and burns

my GI, said that those are not reflux symptoms and that he doesn't know what else to do for me and that I should go to a teaching hospital

hope you have better luck with yours, let me know what he says

The flu season seems to be peaking early and the clinics here are overloaded with people with upper respiratory problems. Just a thought as to what else maybe causing your symptoms.
 
Good luck on Wednesday.

Stacey the only thing you mentioned that I haven't experienced is the eye stinging. I wonder if that's related or you don't have a co-existing condition.

Also you are eating healthy but are you also eating very small portions? I can eat healthy but if i eat a lot I still get symptoms. Good luck!

Stacey I don't think PPI's can give you GERD but if you change meds frequently you'd probably suffer some serious rebound reflux whether you started out with it or not.

Who actually diagnosed you with LPR?
