I know this has been discussed before but could not find it in the archives. How many of you out there get remittent heartburn even while on meds. I was in Hawaii last week and no problems until the last day we were driving and all of a sudden it came on. It only lasted about 10 minutes but it gave me major panic attacks.
 
Any info would be great.
 
Thanks
Marsha

Marsha,
Heartburn is not one of my symptoms...sore throat is. I'm taking my meds like clockwork everyday had was feeling much better until a week ago when the sore throat started yet again.

I still can't figure out why...isn't the PPI supposed to stop the acid production...which in turn stops acid from damaging/irritating the esophagus?

Sigh...I'm so discouraged.

Thanks Meryl for replying to my post I have been freaking out about this. I was fine on my prilosec for six monts. On september 1st I felt it coming on and it lasted around 10 minutes. This past Friday its been consistent I feel like my throat is burning. I am so scared its cancer.

I have had this problem off and on for a little over three years. I am so sick of it.

Marsha,
I know exactly how you're feeling. Although the ENT told me I had no inflammation when I was scoped (a little over a month now), now that the burning throat is back, I am also scared it's cancer. The ENT scope only looked as far down as the upper sphincter. Anything lower requires a Gastroscopy...which I'm scheduled for in February!! That's 6 months away! I don't think I can wait that long and will be looking into alternatives come Monday.

Although I do not know a lot about throat cancers, I have heard it's quite aggressive and if you've had burning throat for 3 years, I think it may be safe to assume that it's not...

Have you had a Gastroscopy/Endoscopy done?
