Hey bacon, how did you ever find out about
your allergies? I am thinking about
looking into this after my next ent visit, maybe see a PCP and have him do some type of intolerance/ allergy testing, I really think that our gastritis flares up from something we consume that our stomach does not like allowing the LES to malfunction by sending the food back up (reflux) explaining how I had gastritis and had developed GERD, I also read that once you have gastritis and after it heals the gut never is the same it becomes senestive and that's when GERD develops from the food sensitivities/allergies, I think this is what happened to me. But the thing with the LPR is tricky, why is the UES malfunctioning? cause I know LPR people have LPR is due to malfunctioning muscles, and when it malfunctions either acid or non-gasious refluxes happen such as bile pepsin destroying our airways, voice box, and etc. But it's interesting how GERD can be easily explained and I know LPR happens from pepsin (i got this part down) but why is the UES not working, this is where the nerves part comes into play that I came across with that many LPR people are throwing around, that it's (nerves) so I really believe there is underlying cause in all of us we just can not dissect properly. For me it could be from all the smokeless tobacco (hookah) I had done during my first years of college, I think my diet/smoking weakened my muscles over time and now I am suffering from it, so i really just wanted to write out this gibberish just to see if these odd ideas bouncing in my head make sense? :)
Sometimes I believe for me it can be nerve as well as damage I have done from smoking like for example I could have had nerve problems but smoking had made it worse you know? Cause smoking really affects our brain and stuff. I might see neurologist when all this is said and done, cause it could honestly been something i had all along, and damaged my nerves more without even knowing it.
