Hi everyone, I'm so glad I found this forum while searching what I thought were my odd GERD symptoms. I've had trouble off and on for years, and was told about 20 years ago I had a hiatal hernia, since that time I've had what I would call some classic symptoms, of burping, occasional chest pain, and fiery heartburn. I took Nexium for years and then went off it for about 5-6 years, I'm recently back on it, I got myself completely freaked out, by my ear pain, and swollen gland in my neck on left side, I consciously sleep on the left, to prevent my reflux, I was convinced it was a horrible nasopharyngeal cancer, because that's what came up while searching the web. My pcp gave me ear drops, that made it worse, further confirming my diagnosis! Then I noticed that my right ear was bothering me after I had to sleep on my right to drain left ear, that's when it dawned on me, when I read all your posts with similar symptoms I was so relieved. Was wondering if any of you experience the swollen gland? Mine will go up and become painful, and then subside some, same with the left ear. Sorry for the long post, would love to hear from any with similar problems. :)
