Just trying to figure out the issue I really need to address with this LPR/GERD issue.
Before I got (or was aware) of my LPR symptoms, I had, on occasion, retching (when tired/stressed) and, sometimes after eating, waves of intra-abdominal pressure that would subside after 20 minutes.
So, I believe my gut needs to be healed more quickly than my upper airways, at this point, as that seems to be root of issue.
Today, after eating lunch (maybe I ate too much?), I felt fine for 20 minutes. Then my stomach got bloated, and it just felt like stuff was not digesting. Felt pressure up towards throat. Then got stuffed nose, throat phlegm. VERY uncomfortable distention of stomach. Also VERY fatigued, dizzy, yucko.
Finally, after a few hours, I felt some 'movement' in my stomach and i had some belching and flatulance. This tells me things are finally digesting. That's when I usually get my cough (phlegm being cleared out?). Now my belly is better and my fatigue/dizzines have abated.
Could it be stomach emptying issue? I should probably take Barium test. Yuck.
Of course, now I"m afraid to eat again. But I do think I need to eat smaller meals. I keep forgetting about that.
Sorry if I repeat myself; helpful just to share, so I'm not keeping this all to myself. ;)
