After being on the PPI for almost 6 weeks my heartburn has gotten better
But it's not completley gone... sound familiar?
Now All I have is refered pain and the following symptoms:
1. If drinking liquids sometimes I can here what I think is reflux after I swallow.. I can hear little burpee sounds!
2. I have pin prick sensations on my chest.. sometimes on the right and sometimes on the left upper chest
they last for little time.. like seconds.. they don't feel like anything if I touch the area.. and I can't exsaperate them with movement. they seem to be random events... they are not particulary painful.
3. Sometimes I feel like my esophogus is DRY (especially in the morning) like it dosen't make mucous on it's own?
does anyone have any tips or know of nutrition to help this feeling beside just hydration?
4. Can anyone who is relativley symptom free comment on referd pain.. and tips on keeping the esophogus well lubricated
Besdes water... (Water is not really a lubricant) I have used Aloe Vera GEL liquid and that seems to help a bit.
I have also used Laughing cow Cheese.. and that seems to really help sooth it.
