I have GERD, but it's been well under control without meds for awhile. At least I think it has! I've had a little set-back recently because of being on antibiotics, but hopefully that will clear up soon. Here's my question: Can we have coughing and wheezing, because of stomach acid coming up to our throats at night, but not ever feel it, or have any heartburn?? It seems strange that that could happen, but I'm open to possibilities.
Several years ago, when I was on aciphex, I developed a wheezing in the back of my throat, mostly on expiration and mostly at night. In the mornings, I have lots of mucous in my throat, and have to do alot of coughing to get it up. I cough a fair amount during the day too. (I don't smoke and my lungs are fine).
I'm curious if we can have pumonary and throat symptoms from reflux, but not have any real feelings of heartburn? Thanks.
