Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


This is all confusing for me. I just went to the after hours clinic for my mucus and breathing problem tonight. This particular doctor laughed at me about the acid reflux thing. He didnt think that at all. He didn't believe in the "silent reflux" thing we you get mucus galore but don't feel much burning. I told him that the mucus just starts going to protect the throat.

He listened to my lungs...said they sounded fine. I said what is causing all the drainage?? And my chest feels tight. I feel like I can't get a full breath in without making an effort. It's an uncomfortable feeling. He told me he thought it was all drainage from my sinus's because I wasn't coughing up anything. Hmmmm....then he came to the conclusion that I am having anxiety issues and said that it would be a good idea to go on some xanax. I am up for that. I hope that he has diagnosed things correctly. But I still think I should treat the acid reflux because I do think I have that too. If I treat it all maybe I will get everything back under control. I hope!

Anyone else feel like this?
Every doctor has their own opinion. It is true about the muscus though so he is wrong. I have anxiety and panic attacks - right now I have anxiety because I don't know what is wrong with me - I don't know if I have acid reflux or gerd but it is getting me depressed. I have to wait a whole month before I get tested to find out. When you call the gasterologist, they are so busy they don't call you back.

Anxiety saps the energy out of you like stress does. I guess the best thing for you to do is relax, meditate, and don't worry so much. I am trying to do the same. I just went through what you did a month ago when the pollen season just started. I had a tight chest, mucus, I kept clearing my throat and I felt like I couldn't breath. I went to the doctors twice so they could check my chest. They put me on nasal sprays and a inhaler. I kept producing extra muscus and swallowing it. My stomach felt so horrible. I got through it and when the pollen cleared then I felt totally better. I guess if you acid reflux or gerd you get worse than other people.

I just wish I could wake up one morning and feel great.
Thanks all of you! I do need to see a specialist. I don't think the regular doctors are equipped to deal with reflux and all of it's tricky issues. Mine is coupled with anxiety. I went ahead and went to another doctor at my regular clinic this morning. She also said my lungs sound clear, she doesn't even think I have a sinus infection. She believes I have post nasal drip that comes with allergies and reflux. She has prescriped me a reflux med which I need to go get plus both doctors agree I need to be on some xanax as needed because of the extreme stress I am under. I really do feel like the mucus makes me feel like I have asthma. They don't hear wheezing but I made the first doctor prescribe me an inhaler. I sound like a mess don't I ? I am really frustrated because I just wish I had one doctor to help me with EVERYTHING!

I am right there with you - I wake every morning wondering what will the day bring me. I am getting pretty sick and tired of this whole situation. I swear I just went through the same thing like you just did with the mucus. I thought my lungs were congested and I kept coughing up mucus. It is true what your doctor said about the nasal drip and then you swallow it and what makes it worse is that you have acid reflux. Then your stomach produces mucus so it makes you feel like your chest is tight. My doctor and allergist explained everything to me. I went into panic when this was going on because I just want to feel good for just one day. It will pass and just take one day as it comes. Worrying and panic or anxiety will make it worse. Right now I am going through some anxiety - I can't figure out what is causing all this pain in my stomach. I went to see the gasterologist and I am scheduled for a scope to be done. I am scared to death because I don't know what they will find. Everyone keeps telling me it is gas or gerd but I can't believe gerd does this. I am taking Pantoprazole and it doesn't work. Today I had an episode belching and pain in my stomach. I tried to call my gasterologist but they are tied up in surgery. I haven't eaten anything but oatmeal and chicken broth. Do you go through this?
