Hi everyone. I am a 41 year old male who is not overweight.
I dont smoke and am in good health. In the beginning of this year I took a round of antibiotics for a tract infection I thought I had.
After that, things went all haywire. My throat felt like it was tightening up, I started getting asthma, I was constantly spitting, i had the notorious lump in throat feeling and at one point, my throat was getting so tight I thought I was dying and went to the ER a few times. They said I was fine.
Ive been going to ENTs and had my throat scoped a few times, the 'back' area looked a bit swollen and I have some cobblestones like bumps. one ENT thought it was allergies but I feel very confident it isnt especially after doing an allergy panel that said I wasnt allergic to much except a type of grass that we dont have much of here in Cali.
Now, about 10 or so months after, I still have constant throat clearing but not nearly as bad, I have a sore throat and palate still. My throat is occasionally tight and it feels off, there is a 'lump' but it feels smaller than before, the asthma has gone away for now.
I even bought the biomed pepsin test but it came back negative which makes me wonder.
ive been on ppis for about a month, some say it could take months to notice a difference.
Do any of you have similar symptoms as me? and do you guys think i have lpr?
I have an appointment to see a GI, maybe she will do a further scope down my esophagus instead of just the throat or a ph test.

Hi jay41,

Welcome to HealingWell Forum

Even you are not overweight but try slim your belly completely to not hold any pressure on your stomach that won't effect your lower esophageal sphincter at all.

This also could be related to h.pylori if you, best to see your GP and request for stool tube to make a stool sample as to see if you have. Its also can be related to stress and depression as well that would make your stomach to produce more acid.

Ask your GP Doctor to referral you to Endoscopy as before seeing your GI, when you have seen your GI, ask him to do Manometry and PH 24 Monitoring as they are will be tested in the same day. Also ask to do Barium Swallow as well!
