Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hello all! I'm new to the board, I'm so glad I found this. I'm 33 and I've had GERD since I was pregnant with my first child. After my second child, I went on Prevacid for a bit. I found that I really didn't need something 24/7 so I went off of it and just used Pepcid as needed. Then about a year ago I started having a lot of anxiety and my GERD got worse. My GERD consists mostly of stomach acid coming up into my throat but no burning in my chest but occasional twinges of chest pain. Then I started having a constant tickle in my throat, coughing and clearing my throat. I went on 20 mg of Prilosec which didn't really help the tickle but it did control the reflux. I also have postnasal drip. A couple months ago I started having a feeling that I can't get a deep breath which makes my yawn. Then after a while my throat starts to feel achy, I feel a lump in my throat, I have to clear my throat a lot and my tickle and cough starts again. From reading some of the posts here, I think I might have LPR. Could the breathing problem I have be related to LPR? I was thinking that the breathing problem was related to anxiety but now I'm thinking maybe not. My doctor had given me a prescription for 20 mg of Prilosec twice a day but I only take it once, maybe I should start taking it twice???
