when I wake up I have mucus resting in my throat
when I wake up I have mucus resting in my throat... also when doing exercise or eating alot I also get tense muscles in the throat at times.. I tried Nexium for Acid Relux,, I felt there was nothing and went to Somac 40mg. It started to work after a month. My acid reflux can't be felt and I believed at a stage that the Thick White glue like mucus was not connected to it, and also I found large amounts of doctors are not very educated when it comes to acid reflux at all.
After I thought I was cured which took a while, meaning; I could swallow again and not have annoying white mucus chocking me up, I thought, I must be cured and I never had acid reflux. After 2 days of stopping Somac, I began to experience my symptoms again.
Now that is proof that I have acid reflux to myself. Yet what is very very frustrating is Doctors have not told me (and I've been to alot) of what can happen with Acid Reflux. It seems that some people have acid reflux and its no problem for them, they don't get that glue white mucus. But after seeing so many posts of people who have been confused like me, "is it acid reflux or allergy?,, why the hell can't my doctor explain?? or warn me of other effects of Acid Reflux,, why can't they tell me how its connected...)..
So many of us with Acid Reflux are doubting because Doctors are not doing their Job correctly,, just giving someone a Pill won't work, especially if you believe in the Placebo effect.
Anyway, I'm back on the Somac 20mg,, and things are seemingly curving back to my way again.
So has anyone else had this same experience and have they also felt the same frustration I have had ? Please tell.
