Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I had a dry cough and hoarse voice for ages before I was sent to ENT to investigate. They found it was acid reflux. Back to GP to find the reason, they just want to give gavascon and other stuff to lessen the acid production. Eventually had a breath test and it was being caused by helicobacter pylori.

Bad news was that the treatment, strong antibiotic dose, damaged my ears and caused vertigo. And the acid is back again after just six months. Have a look at the link, its most informative.
good luck
Thanks everyone! It's been one month and the last 2 days I have finally found a bit of relief. Thank God! I think it is because we had a good frost that killed off some of the outdoor irritants and I finished my last z pak pill today. I am crossing fingers that I have this thing under control. It is a fine balance with my allergy meds and acid reflux meds. ugh! Funny thing with me too. I have vertigo for 2 days now and I am wondering if that is from the antibiotics. Hang in there all!

I held off on my last script for antibiotcs since seems I'm on them so much. Too much. I've had this awful PND, throat full of mucus feeling for days now and beginning to think maybe allergy related except that it gets worse after eating or drinking anything. Even sucking on a sucker and cough drops make me 10 times worse. Chewing gum helps me more as the Dr. said to keep the mucus flowing. I treat both my GERD/LPR/ and asthma/allergies but sometimes it just gets the best of me no matter what. So glad you are feeling better! Any of this stuff can make you flat sick when in a bad flare.

That vertigo is awful too! Have had it for entire days. Learned it's caused by some kind of build up in your ears. Like calcium crystals? Something like that. I take meds and go to bed usually waking up fine but there are simple exercise (movements rather) that will eliminate the vertigo. Going to try them next time around if it starts. I can't do a darn thing when that strikes!
