Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi, I was diagnosed with acid reflux 2 weeks ago, I have drastically changed my diet and raised the head of my bed to help stop the refluxing in my sleep.
The acid has stopped gurgling in my throat so much and has stopped coming up into my mouth as much thankfully.
Although I do have a rumbling all over my stomache in various places and in my upper left ribcage under my heart, is this normal? It was much more frequent before I changed my diet but it hasn't gone away.
Last night I was speaking to my mother and all of a sudden it felt almost as if the right hand side of my tongue had pulled a muscle in itself within my throat.
I had to stop talking and I was in pain. When the pain finally went away I had a burning at the back of my throat so drank some water.
About an hour later I was hungry so got a piece of wholemeal bread with some soya margerine on, when i took a small bite and started to chew, my mouth went instantly dry (almost like all the saliva had come out of my mouth)
Now the underneath of my tongue is swollen and slightly sore, and my saliva is really thick and gloopy, it felt like I had to force the slightest bit of saliva out of my mouth. I went to sleep not long after and woke up with my throat so dry I could barely speak, my voice was so hoarse.
Drinking water helps a bit but not a lot, the back of my mouth / throat are still dry.
I am not on medication at the minute although I did take a "Kalms" tablet for my nerves yesterday for the first time.
Could this have caused anything? Or did the acid reflux cause my saliva to start messing up? If I rub the right hand side of my throat I can feel a small lump (might be swelling) like a very small adams apple.
I'm really worried about this and can't get to the doctors until monday as it's closed.
I don't want to go to the hospital again as I was there a few days ago (the doctor made me go) and they didn't go anything for me..although this wasn't to do with my saliva it was to do with pain in my stomache.
I'd be really greatful for any help.
Thanks in advance,
