Need suggestion on how get rid of Reflux symtoms unitl my Gastro Doctor Appointment ?

I have an appointment to see a Gastro doctor next week on Thurday. But until then what can I do to get rid of the lump in my throat and this burning in the center of my chest. I started back taking the Nexuim I had prescribed to me by my Primary Doctor. But I feel it is not working to relieve my symtoms. Please Help!!!

I'm sorry you're having these problems. Hopefully, your gastro can help. I have experienced the "lump in the throat" feeling for over four months now and it is almost constant. Was on Dexilant 60mg for a month and Nexium 40 mg for the rest of the time. It does not seem to help. Went to my primary care doctor today and he gave me a prescription for some gargle that he said might help me. I haven't got it filled yet so I don't know if it will be successful. Guess we'll try anything that we think might help. Good luck!

It can take several days for Nexium to start working. Until then, you can try some regular antacids such as Gaviscon or Mylanta. You can also try to sit or stand up straight all day, and sleep with your head and shoulders elevated at night. (either prop up the whole mattress, or use a wedge pillow.)

Thank you both. It always help when someone else knows what you are going through. I really hope the Nexium works. My dad says I got the reflux from cause noone else in the family has it. But what kills me is that I work out a lot. This all started after I turn 30 last year. It is crazy and I turn 31 next mouth and it has come back.

Not sure on your history of what remedys you have triec but have you tried apple cidar viniger and honey? I find this works for me in the morning on empty stomach, 1 teasepoon, APV with honey in distilled water, slug it down. Make sure the apple cidar viniger comes with the hoeny already made , it works wonders, and if you are on nexium take it before you sleep!
