Unhappy burning mouth and throat

I have had acid reflux for years but recently lost 25 pounds, and now the
acid is worse than ever. I have constant burning in my throat, and mouth, and
it feels as though my breath is very hot coming up from my throat. I'm taking
nexium for about 9 days. I am not sure if it is working. My doctor said that
my burning mouth and throat could be other underlining diseases. I also have
breathing problems from the acid as well. It is my theory that I am aspirating
the acid into my lungs. That is horrible as well. Does anyone else have this
problem with their acid reflux... This is making me so miserable, and tortured.
I willing to hear any advise.....

Re: burning mouth and throat

Yup. My GERD caused sore throats, breathing problems, cough and the whole nine yards. It's NOT fun.

If your PPI isn't helping, you can try another one. But if that doesn't work, it's worth trying some other meds, like carafate or domperidone.

What tests have been performed? What have you tried so far? Is there a particular time of day when it seems most bothersome?
