Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi everyone! I have posted plenty of times on the reflux thread. I do suffer from the on and off. I thought I had done better since summer. I have some questions. First let me say I got a cold a month ago from the 3rd grade class I work in. They are CHRONICALLY sick! Round and round it goes around the classroom. So it's been 4 weeks and I went from a cold to sinus infection and now in the midst of 2nd round of antibiotics. These seem to be working. But I have had a chronic cough for 3 weeks. Mostly late afternoon and evening and most take cough syrup for that. It has never been in my chest. Just drainage down my throat. No wheezing. I keep listening to my lungs with the stethascope that we have. I feel like I get more and more nervous like I have a nervous cough. It's gunk coming down. But I get hoarse in the throat. even got into a coughing frenzy on my birthday a couple of nights ago and about when to the ER....my questions are....

Can you have an acid reflux cough??
Can it be a tickle or goopy?
Can you feel like you can't get a full breath?
Does it feel tight in the throat or chest?
Which should I see, an allergist, ENT, regular doc?? Who??

I am confused and frustrated and tired of the worry. I feel like what if I choke to death from the cough and my lungs swell shut? I have never been diagnosed with asthma.

Can I take my prilosec while on a Z Pak antibiotic? Anyone who wants to respond...thank you kindly!:)
