Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Dear Zoe....bless your heart. I am so sorry you are going through all this. Expecially at your age. You are so young and in your prime. You shouldn't be feeling like this. Most likely I would think it would be some depression and anxiety. Even when you don't think it's going on in your life, sometimes it is and your body is just telling you that it's under pressure. I also think you might have silent acid reflux. I have that too. A good indication of that is the lump in the throat. I have alot of reflux where I don't feel the burning sensation but I will have this gunk in my throat and a little cough. It is a post nasal drip thing that comes from the reflux and come back down your throat. All of this can make any of us depressed.

If you were old like me ( I am 44) I would say you might be going through perimenopause. Ugh! Believe me you won't like this at all. I am totally confused with my symptoms right now to be honest. I feel so crappy and also wonder if I am dying....and I am not sure if it is my pms, low hormones,perimenopause and low thyroid issues, or if I am depressed and needing medication for that and then it will treat all my aches and pains. It's like which is causing which? I don't know which thing to treat or to treat them all. I don't want to over medicate. I am sure you don't eithor.

Today is rough for me. I am curled up on my bed with my heating pad just feeling like my good life has been robbed from me. You may have to look at your circumstances too. In my case...my husband and I are close to losing our house in a few months to foreclosure, we are barely paying the bills, I am sad because my two daughters and grown up and in their early 20's and moved out, so I have the empty nest syndrome. I am kind of having a midlife crisis. I don't know where to go with my life and I feel all broken down.

You on the other hand are just 29. I don't think it's hormonal. Maybe you are under stress. Regardless you will get it figured out. Don't let this rob you of this happy time in your life! Hang in there! Find all the help you need.:angel:
If I have silent acid reflux or post nasal drip, then why isn't my SEVERAL MONTHS of taking nasanex, allegra, and nexium or kapidex helping? How can you be on such high dosages of medication for months and see no improvements?

What makes post nasal go away? Can acid reflux literally just not go away, ever? I don't understand how people can live with this.

I can't go out, can't eat, can't be happy really. I know people have bigger problems in their life and thank god I apparently don't have some sort of life-threatening illness, but I feel like my life has literally stopped anyway and I can barely find any happiness during any point of my day. It just gets worse and I hate feeling physically nauseous PERPETUALLY every moment of every day.

I've done probably everything everyone has come up with and nothing works. I'm young, healthy, thin, eat right...I just don't see how this can suddenly pop up and never disappear and apparently doesn't happen to anyone else in the world cause all my doctors are stumped.

1SUNNY1 - Should I go back on the nortriptyline as a way to just mask my symptoms or do you think it's taking care of the CAUSE of my symptoms?

By the way, THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who is providing their 2 cents. Greatly appreciated.
