Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index




Mountain Reader,

I was concerned because I have this knot in my nose sort of like a pimple but Dr. said not mess with it other than use hot compresses on my face and put some neosprian on it with a q tip. This PND is so thick that I feel like drilling a hole in my head. I believe this is allergy related although I can tell some difference in when I eat or drink, but guess that would affect swollen nasal passages too? Right? I'm out of any acid meds and can't decide to go back on Nexium twice a day again or what. I was using OTC Prilosec but honestly I'm not better on them. I did get 2 nasal sprays and one is not a steriod. I also asked for Allergra this time since I remember it helped way back when. He did say that your body becomes immune to different meds and you sometimes need to switch around. I believe that too! I'm so bummed out that I feel like not even pursuing the trips to all the "new Dr's and surgeon." Like you mentioned in earlier post, he probably won't do surgery if my test are negative and I have this feeling that they will. Hate going back all thru test again, which I know that LPR is hard to pin point with test other than 24 hr ph and I am not looking forward to another one of those. If I do continue, I will certainly demand the double probe.

Sure hope you get to feeling back to 100%! I would be happy to even have to still take meds just to be out of this misery. I'm having IBS symptoms again too and do feel maybe I should have the colon thing. Sure hate the thought of that too! I never had asthma until the GERD. Did you have asthma before finding out about the GERD/LPR. I was sure hoping that surgery would take care of that problem! I've been told that I didn't have asthma but when I go to the emergency room not able to breath that's what they treat me for. I don't take any medication for asthma anymore because it didn't help me breath any better and I felt like the inhaler caused me to become hoarse. Do or did you have problems with your voice? Sorry if I'm asking same questions over. Are you satisfied with your surgery or think you will be once things get straightened out? I would expect to have some problems so soon after surgery although I've heard some say none at all while other's say nothing was different.....or even worse. I still think if the surgeon would Ok it, I'd give it a try! I've said couldn't make things worse but then been told that it could! I suppose that since I tested negative to allergy testing that these symptoms are related to GERD/LPR. I did show to be allergic to some molds and you know mold is everywhere. I just want to feel good again and normal! Well, as normal as I could get anyway. LOL.

Keep us posted since you are the only one I've had contact with before, during and after surgery. Not only for answer to my problems because I'm most interested in your health too now! I wish you only the best and a FULL recover and good health, my friend.
