Hi all, brief background about me.
I am a 21 yr old male, non smoker and very occasional drinker. Healthy BMI and phsyically active and fit.
about 2 months ago, I started having this extreme stomach aches, like acid was eating my stomach, after 2 weeks, I went to a GI dr who scoped me and diagnosed me with acid reflux which caused reflux esophagitis. I was put on pantaprazole 40mg twice a day. After that I do not have any acid attacks on my stomach anymore. Throughout, I DID NOT EXPERIENCE ANY HEARTBURN, only symptom I had was acid tummy ache. I also cut down my med to just once a day last week.
However 2 weeks ago, I started having throat tightness at the RIGHT side of my throat, gaviscon advance did not help at all and I was still on my twice a day dose of PPI. the tightness is actually at the very back of my mouth and only at the right side, I also had the feeling like my throat is a bit sore. But that is all, no reflux pain, no heartburn, no trouble swallowing, no mucus or post nasal drip.
Is this LPR? this occurred way before I cut down my dose of PPI to once a day and even now, the symptoms are not worsening. After a full meal, I would experience burping, which I think is quite common in normal people, however it is just burping with no regurgitation.
