Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi everyone!
For the past 4 or 5 months I've been feeling horrible with constant nausea and the feeling of mucus in my throat that just wont go away no matter how much times I swallow. It's completely miserable! Anyway, I went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago and all he did was have a feel at my abdomen and then prescribed me Omeprazole for acid reflux, although he didn't say I had acid reflux. He didn't mention anything in particular that may have been wrong with me. I didn't think it could be acid reflux since I wasn't getting a burning sensation in my throat although I did have a slight sensation in my stomach from time to time. It was mostly just the mucus and the nausea that were bothering me. I've also been reading some of the threads on here and have discovered LPR, which I think I may have.

Is there anyone who has LPR that is also experiencing this constant nausea? There's been no vomiting, although I have been close to it a few times but have managed to stop it from happening. I also have emetophobia and wasn't sure if that's what was making me feel sick. I haven't ever been this bothered with it in the past though. Also, I've heard that PPIs such as omeprazole take months to take an effect, is this always the case?

I've also noticed a lot of orange lumps in the very back of my throat, behind the uvula and was wondering if this may be associated with my other symptoms?

Any help would be appreciated,
Hi Robyn. I have acid reflux, and I too have been having a lot of mucus in my throat lately, which drips down the back of my throat, also known as "post nasal drip" I hear that acid reflux can cause mucus in the throat from the reflux, but this could also be something going on with your nose or sinus, which I think is going on with me. the best way to get it evaluated is to see a ENT (ears, nose, and throat doctor) I am seeing an ENT next week for some other problems I'm having with the reflux, but also going to mention my mucus problem. good luck.
Acid reflux can cause other problems such as ENT problems too (Post nasal drip, sore throat, ear infection for example)
