GERD/Silent reflux?
Nov 21, 2014
I've been diagnosed with mild chronic gastritis and hiatal hernia a few years ago after an endoscopy performed. I was on Prilosec and antacid for about a year and the suddenly all the gnawing and bitter/sour taste in mouth are gone and I did not have to take any drug for about 2 years. During this this time, I was not that good in controlling my eating habit. The problems now seem to hit me hard this time with lumpy throat feeling, shortness of breath with excessive gas, I can no longer eat large meals or play sports due to shortness of breath, stuffy nose seldom happen after meal. I've been back to my doctor 3 times in 2 months and he said that because of my stress that contributes so much to it and asked me to continue with 40mg of Prilosec a day and not to worry since so many GERD sufferers reported same symptoms. It's been 2 months now and I know that the only thing that gets better is the excessive gas in my stomach. The lumpy throat feeling and shortness of breath disappear when I have a good bowel movement (last much longer then a loud burp). The shortness of breath tent to happen toward the end of the day, I I've never had a heartburn so I guest that I have silent reflux. I've been worrying so much since I can only do some yoga or short brisk walk. I've been really sad and worry wondering when it will be healed. Please share your story and experience as it help calm me down so much. Thank you and God bless us all.
