I've been struggling with a burning throat/anxiety and excess mucus for a long time now. I've tried 5 types of PPI and 2 H2 Blockers as well as Gaviscon Advance, lifestyle/diet changes, Alkaline Water, Kouffman's Reflux Diet and more besides. Today I completely stopped all meds and while I feel a little worse, I also don't feel too different..! From keeping records over the last 3 months, I've not seen a pattern in what I eat or do being the cause; in fact
sometimes I did the exact same thing for 2 days in a row and would burn one day but not the next! Even lettuce and water makes me burn.
I was wondering if the burning in my throat could be caused by something else, maybe stress or the PND itself? I ask because on an evening last week, I was given a pizza and ice cream by a friend, and couldn't exactly turn it down as I had nothing else to eat. Despite these being A-List reflux causes, I didn't experience any symptoms until I drank some water 2 hours later!
Any help you can offer would be much appreciated!
EDIT: Any idea how long the H2 Blocker Cimetidine takes to work once taken with water? Silly question, but I honestly can't find any answers online so far. XD
