Hi, everyone.
I am 60 and I have been diagnosed with GERD and LPR. I had grade A esophagitis that healed on repeat endoscopy. The symptoms however persisted. My gastroenterologist put me on omeprazole double dose but no improvement. My symptoms are funny as well: bad taste/irritation on the sides my tongue and heat/cold sensation, sometimes on the chest, sometimes in the back. This comes always with the bad taste and is relieved by eating something (immediate improvement). Symptoms are worse in the evening and I also have a 'lump in the throat' sensation when I wake up.
Does anyone have similar symptoms? Any ideas-what could help? I wait now for a pH measurement.
Still hopeful.

Hi 3+4,
Welcome to Healing Well! There are quite a few members who suffer from LPR, and I' sure they'll be by soon!  I had atypical symptoms as well, but mine were lung related.  PPIs controlled it all for quite a few years, but as I got worse, my lungs started being very badly affected.  I ended up getting a Nissen fundoplication, and have received amazing results.
Glad you've joined us!
Best wishes,
