Hi all...
I came down with LPR a few months ago.
My main symptoms are an irritated throat and PND.

I took OTC prilosec for a few weeks to a month, but it didn't seem to help. It even seemed to cause a bitter taste in my mouth after eating carbs. Funny how that went away when I stopped.

I took other PPI's, but they REALLY hurt my stomach to the point of going to the ER early one morning.
And now I don't take anything. However, the OTC Prilosec 2x a day did not hurt my stomach.

I came down with LPR after gaining back 25-30 lbs and have been wondering if my weight gain had something to do with it....However....I have noticed PND after eating for years, but it never bothered my throat.

My questions is...did weight loss every really help any of you with LPR?

Thanks so much and I truly hope we all feel better soon.
