Hello! My LPR started about a month ago. Started having numerous ulcers on tongue, then sensation of lump in throat, post nasal drip, funny sensation in sinuses, sore throat, more ulcers on tongue. Doctor prescribed PPi pantoprazole 20mg once a day. No life style recommendation. Thank god I did my research! I did MAJOR life style changes, small meals, no more coffee, tomatoes, onions, citrus, actually, nothing under ph 5 for 2 weeks, elevated bed head, you know the drill (lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks...I was 120lbs, so I'm quite skinny now)
All symptoms were pretty much gone after 10 days, I decided to quit the medicine. Slight rebound effect but was expecting it. Have been treated by old indian lady, doing major acupressure work on my feet, encouraging me to clean my digestive track.
It's been more than a week now since I quit the meds and I seem to be having some symptoms back: post nasal drip morning and evening, occasional hoarseness and sore throat, and mostly, many small burps, or bubbles that come up my esophagus...Never had that before.
But no real feeling of reflux.
How does it feel when you reflux? Can you feel it? Taste it? How long after a reflux would you start feeling a burning sensation in the throat if any?
Please let me know how it feels for you and how you can tell whether what you've eaten has caused you to reflux.
