DOGG: Yeah I have a lot of different symptoms since i been on the ppi and the endoscopies I had 3 done within 5 month period so can you believe the damage that has been done to my LES? I want to do the 24 hr study but I am scared of having more side effects. Right now my symptoms are very mild but I am going manage it by changing my diet and keeping a food journal I read this book called dropping the acid by Dr. Kaufman who is suppose to be worldly renowned expert on LPR, I am going to follow her induction diet and see if my symptoms subside if they do, it is proven I have LPR and it is all about life changes but if not than I shall make an appointment with my ent for further questions.
What are you experiencing now? MY symptoms are really odd chest pain or more like pressure around my upper body, and some type of thing in my throat but it disappears and comes according to the book the lump is suppose to disappear when you eat and is there when you do not eat, now if you have something like this it is defiently LPR but Lpr is such tricky disease you can not pin it down, I got the heartburn after getting off the PPI I get it sometime or for my case lately all the time, so I think to begin with i must had LPR because I remember getting soar mouth all the time. it can just start with that. Its annoying self diagnosing yourself but yeah. I think our cases our gerd became wrose after the repeated tubes going own our throats.
