Re: Burning feeling in throat, clogged ears. Does this sound like acid reflux?
prisolic takes a while i think to build in your system. I use aciphex. Nexium was quite effective as well. The clogged ears is different from acid reflux though. If it is an allergy hopefully it will subside. The other thing i was wondering is the burning can really be uncomfortable are you clenching your teeth, cause that can cause swelling and pressure on the eustaciam tubes too and clogged them. That happenes to me i sleep with a mouth gaurd now. Who knew. If you still have the burning in a weak i would seriously ask your doctor if he would give you diflucan, he might not understand why, but tell him its not unheard of to get a fungal infection in your gut and since the ppi didnt work you would be most appreciative for at least 7 days of 100mg. of difucan. Cause if thats it you will heal rapidly, but honestly the diflucan kills the fungus and then you get to feel like you have the flu for a few days, but it gets better from there..be sure, real sure to drink a lot of water..need to flush your system, especially with gerd or a fungal infection. And if your doctor does agree and gives you the seven days and the burning stops (mine did after six) you need to call him and ask for an extra week of it, cause that grows back rapidly and even in the pdr it says to stay on it for a bit after the symptoms clear. I dont know if it is or isnt, im just saying if the ppi doesnt work it would be my guess. I didnt like prisolic, but i do not remember why, nexium and aciphex work in a day. You defintely need to change your diet. look up gerd and diet and it will inform you on what foods to avoid. The easy ones cause symptoms that day, the others they list. Also, try not to eat before bedtime, three hours before and sleep with your head elevated. They sell a wedge at any surgical supply store for people with reflux. It is a pillow wedge to make sure your all even and your head stays elevated. I use that. It will all pass and before you know it be better. Feel better and good luck. Did you at least buy the pearls of acidophilis and start drinking the water..it will help, cant hurt.
