Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

I have been scheduled for a 24 hour probe test for non acid reflux. My problem is that I wake up at night choking. My doctors have explained that the reflux from my stomach is causing my vocal cords to go into spasm and that I am indeed choking and without air when this happens. I also have sleep apnea and also use oxygen at night. My doctors say the non acid reflux is a seperate problem. They have prescribed a drug called Reglan but I have had a very bad time with it. The 24 hour probe test is being called the definitive test prior to surgery. The test worrys me as I am very hypersensitive to anything in my nose or throat. Has anyone had this test.
What can I expect? Thank you.

Re: Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

Did you have non acid reflux? If so, did you manage to cure it ?

Re: Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

seems like non acid and weakly acidic reflux have no cure, i have weakly acidic according to the impedance test, it's been like 9 months now, the only "cures" i can think of are a nissen or baclofen, btw google lesogaberan is a new drug for reflux that astrazeneca (nexium ppl) is working on, is the same as baclofen but without the side effects.

Re: Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

Thnx for your reply. Manometry showed as if everything is normal, how could a surgery fix my non-acid reflux? I have no idea why it is happening and it is hard to believe that nothing can cure. I will lookup that drug online and read more about it.

Re: Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

bimik i have a normal manometry too, normal LES, except for a nonspecific motility disorder, was your manometry completely normal?

with a normal manometry you can still experience transient lower esophageal relaxations those dont show up on a manometry, there's gotta be some sort of anomaly on your GI tract though.

What are your symptoms?

Re: Non Acid Reflux 24 Hour Probe Test

Thnx for your reply. When I go home, I will lookup the details of my manometry. But as far as I remember everything was normal including swallowing. My ENT thinks I have an acid reflux, although I had only 3 acid refluxes during the 24 h ph study and the other 70 were non-acid. My GI thinks I have no acid-reflux and non-acid reflux shouldn't give me so many symtoms, especially related to throat pain. So he thinks it is throat related. My main symtoms are throat pain or weird feeling/taste. A few months ago I had severe indigestion and also couple weeks of mucus feeling in my throat and acid taste. But those are mostly gone now. I sometimes have feeling of chill and fatigue ( as if I have a low grade fever) and throat issues. I also have a lump sensation which comes ang goes for a few years ( its on the upper part o fmy throat in the left side, I feel it with my tongue). But I am feeling better now. Hope someday this will go away. Sauna is what makes my throat feel good while heavy icecream with milk makes me feel not too good, although I digest other milk products pretty well. I had an excellent digestion before but this year I have been having problems so I reduced consumtion of coffee, chocolate and spices.
