Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


okay well, a few months ago i seem to remember starting (or contributing to) a discussion here about antibiotics. I NEVER had any LPR probs until, when i had some chest tightness (turned out to be spasms), I went to see a GI. He found h-pylori and put me on antibiotics to kill it. (And there was NO ulcer later when he checked so we killed it for naught - not to mention creating a yeast infection) But then came all this horrible excruciating pain in my throat and chest. My theory is that 1) we need h-pylori and killing it creates too much acid and 2) antibiotics start reflux problems. I wish I could be reinfected with the h-pylori because this is a nightmare. I think LPR is somehow related to bacteria or a virus or something like that. I sure do wish these scientists would read this forum and listen to our stories and put he clues together and FIGURE OUT SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!
yes! that is what i think - the good guys (bacteria) got all killed off and that started this reflux stuff. I have started taking probiotics to try to replace them. not sure how long it will take - i've been taking them for about 3 weeks. also not sure how much quantity I should be taking, but I just got a basic probiotic pill. it just seems very coincidental if I consider ALL the people here and elsewhere on the net that I've been reading about, that have gotten LPR/acid symptoms after a heavy bout of antibiotics. I will be out of town tomorrow for 2 weeks but will check back in with ya when I return. we'll figure this out!
I also was on antibiotics for an upper respratory infection....I finished the full dose and was feeling better for one exception...I dould NOT stop clearing my throat...I NEVER experienced anything like it...I was clearing my throat ESILY every 30 seconds.

This is what prompted me to see an ENT...who in turn scoped me and diagnosed it as Silent Acid Reflux.

Interesting theory that the antibiotics played a role in the LPR.
