Re: Anyone else have these type of symptoms from reflux?
jlgaustin: I have most of these symptoms! Don't get ear infections, but they "pop" all the time and even itch and burn, I swear its the acid in my ears...and I also don't get neck pains, but have pretty much all the other things you described!
I didn't know I had GERD until I went to a different allergist about two years ago. Then he sent me to a GI Dr. I too get a bunch of nasty mucus in my throat after eating and also if I go too long w/out food too, its like my stomach gets mad and throws the acid out there, waiting for the food if I'm hungry. It is miserable! I don't recall having all this until recently. I was on Nexium for over a year. Didn't notice any help until they upped me to two pills (80 mg total) a day. I did then notice it but then I got pregnant and my ob gyn wanted me off those pills and stopping cold turkey was rough! Apparently it was doing something for me because my throat started burning and my reflux got wayyy worse along w/ my allergies when I stopped the medication. Scary.
