Hi all, could really do with some help.
I've had a chronic cough and sore throat upon waking for 8 months, i also have upper abdominal bloating chest tightness and discomfort along with burning. My Dr has put me on somac whilst i wait for a gastroscopy, i think i have a stomach ulcer. Do these symptoms sound like gerd? Important desperate to find relief as somac is not doing anything, Tia x

It could be a hiatal hernia. Make sure you're not eating late. Don't bend straight over or recline 2-3 hours after eating. Prop yourself up when sleeping.

An endoscopy revealed my issues.
