PPI's make LPR worse?

Interesting study I was reading. It said two doses of PPI greatly reduced acid coming up while sleeping but it also made the non-acid (bile, enzymes) reflux increase while sleeping. Thinking is regular acid reflux will hit your throat and make you wake up, but the non acid may do more damage by sitting in your throat and not causing you to wake up. Just something interesting that I read.

Re: PPI's make LPR worse?

Can I ask what LPR means? I am reading that everywhere and have no idea what that is. Thanks!

Re: PPI's make LPR worse?

Thanks for your interesting post, Neddy. It seems that we can't win.
So what is it that makes us wake up choking? Acid or bile? I guess it does not matter. The end result is the same. I don't think we have a choice in what comes up. It just doesn't seem possible that we could influence it by either doing or avoiding certain things or activities. We don't get to choose.
Wouldn't you think that acid should taste acidic? I never taste anything acidic. The stuff seems to have no taste since I don't get a funny taste (or any taste) in my mouth. It could be just plain water, for all I know.

Re: PPI's make LPR worse?

Well, when you upchuck suddenly some liquid that seems like water, it probably is. When I do that I have just drunk water, sometimes.

What is wrong with us anyway? I am very sick of this.

Re: PPI's make LPR worse?

Yeah I'm confused also since I wake up with a bad taste but it certainly doesn't taste like acid, but I know it's bad because my throat hurts (especially if I wake up and down some orange juice).
