Real Sore Throat vs. GERD sore throat

Hi - for those of you with sore throat issues, can you tell if it is GERD-related or if it's truly cold/flu related?

I've had a scratchy throat for the past few days and don't think it is related to GERD b/c my daughter had an ear infection she got from a cold/flu..now I think I might be trying to get what she had.

Anyway - I'm not completely sure though because I haven't gotten sick yet...any thoughts?

Re: Real Sore Throat vs. GERD sore throat

Hi

I am wondering the same thing. This last episode of reflux began while my daughter was sick. I chalked up the sore throat to that at first, but when I became conscious that I was refluxing at night I realized it was either the reflux or a combination. It has been a month now on Prilosec and I still (or again?) have this flaming red sore throat that goes up toward the roof of my mouth. To complicate things, I think I was feeling better but then (ah, life with a toddler) she got a cold and I believe I really did get another sore throat. That was about a week ago, though, and I don't remember viral sore throats lasting that long.

I wonder if a really raw throat from gerd just takes forever to heal and that on top of that, true sore throats are much worse since the tissue is also inflamed. I plan to ask my dr next time.

Are your lymph nodes also swollen? Mine continued to be the whole time, but got worse after I got that last cold.

Take care
