Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I have left 3 months untreated for GERD. My doctor recently diagnosed me with GERD because the stomach acid went all the way up to my nose which was burning and painful including my throat. I took omeprazole (prilosec) 20 mg twice a day for 3 days and had a side effect tingling feeling so I stopped using it. I switched to Protonix 40mg once a day, this is my 2nd day on it and no side effect so far. I heard you need to be PPI for 8 weeks (2 months) to see improvements. My doctor put a camera inside me and saw (red bumps on my throat) due to acid burning and told me taking PPI medication will help my throat heal and erosive esophagus. I had the acid reflux at night during bed time lying down and my stomach was bloated it was horrible and scary. I am scared of stomach ulcer. Do you think i should have a endoscopy and see a gastroenterologist to check further inside my stomach, because so far my ENT doctor saw red bumps on my throat with the fiberoscope? Or should I wait a month while I am on PPI (Protonix) to see if my throat improves or not before I go see a gastroenterologist? I need to change my diet because I ate unhealthy before and mostly spicy, acidic, junk foods, coffee. My throat is itchy now probably because of the red bumps, but before it was burning so bad. I always have a feeling of lumps in my throat whenever I swallow empty. Please help. Thanks, and yes everything I described is real. Anyone who has red bumps in throat due to stomach acid burning please tell me how to soothe it or how you healed it? Any information will be great. My doctor told me GERD is chronic and I was thinking of seeing a nutritionist for GERD so I can eat healthy. Doctor told me stress can also cause more acid too since I am in school.

did the ENT give you a report? those red bumps should have a specific name, you should go to a GI doctor, i hope you respond to the ppi's cause a lot of people (myself included) don't, i don't think a nutricionist will help much you can just follow a GERD diet which you can find on thousand sites online so it's a waste of money imo, you mention "erosive esophagus" have you had an upper endoscopy before? cause for what i know that's the only way to know if you have erosive esophagitis, good luck with everything take care :wave:
