Anyone who suffer from LPR ( reflux )
 
Hello All,

i am having the problem of feeling of mucus or lump in my throat that never goes away and increases just after eating
i was prescribed PPI's, H2 blockers and antacids.
and i have been on these medicines for about 3 months and yet no any change

can anyone tell me if these medicines can really give any effect ??
has any of you suffered from my same symptom ?
and what about the anti-reflux surgeries ??
has any of you tried these surgeries ?
and how did it change your symptom ?

You might wanna have a 24 hour ph test done first to find out whether you have a non acid reflux. According to my 24 hour ph test, it appeared that I have a non acid reflux. So the traditional acid reflux meds didn't work for me.

I made the 24 hour ph probe test and it showed acid reflux or actually what they call lpr
But medicines are not working so what about you
I think I might have birth acid reflux and non acid reflux
And have you done the surgery ??
And much thanks for your reply

I've tried many different meds but none of them helped.

I just had an endoscopy done last week, will discuss with the surgeon whether I am a candidate for a surgery.

Yes, please do let me know how far you have reached ?
and when you discuss this with your doctor please do let me know, on what basis do they say if the patient is a candidate for the surgery or not
thank you
