Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


hello! I have been dealing with LPR/Gerd for quite some time.
The first time I got the symptoms was 5-6 years ago and i didn't know what was it. I had breathing issues, swallowing problems, sort of asthma, sleep apnea during night time and a lot of mucous in my throat. I got much better and one day i even actually stopped taking meds. I had a relapse few months ago. I have been started taking Prilosec twice daily (one morning and one night). I know that Prilosec might not be strong enough for this disease, right? I remember that the very first time I had this problem i used Nexium (twice daily).
I don't really have a lot of other problems besides the swallowing. day are better than others. Does anybody has swallowing difficulty? Mine is also bad as I was diagnosed with a narrowed esophagus.
Any suggestions on meds? any comforting words on the swallowing?
Any suggestion on GI or ENT doctors in NJ or NY?
Thanks for your help!

Hi there! I have used prilosec and it helps with heartburn, but I don't believe ppi's help with swallowing...they don't for me. You were diagnosed with a narrowing in your esophagus, did your doctor mention it needing to be dilated? I had a schatzki's ring that caused narrowing and it had to be dilated. I had it done in January this year and am starting to have swallowing issues again. Have you had a barium swallow which is also called an upper g.i.? Or did you have an endoscopy also called an egd to diagnose the narrowing?
