I have noticed recently that when my allergy symptoms flare up so does the gerd.  What is the connection? My nose is like I have just smelled a strong chemical...sort of burns and then I notice the gerd symptoms are stronger.  I wonder if they are related and , if so, how?
I am not on allergy meds...don't feel the need to be, but am on daily zantac for the gerd...doesn't help too much though.....glad to be off nexium even if the burping, heartburn is worse. That stuff made me feel yucky all over....so did every other ppi they make.
 
Any thoughts?

I think its more likely that the gerd is causing your "allergy symptoms" a lot of people who dont actually have the burning first get diagnosed with gerd when they visit ent about their problems.
