no any other symptoms
but usually reflux has many other symptoms.
it's my case that is quit different

anyway the pH probe test is a thin tube that they insert through your nose to reach either your throat or down to the esophegus according to your symptoms and type of reflux you have. then they detect how far does acid reach the tergeted area where this end of the tube has a sensor for pH metere and it send signals wireless to a device outside

this tube will keep in you for 24 hours, then you go back give them the device so they see the records of pH during the day

Re: those who had TIF surgery

Doesn't it gag you if it's down your nose and in your throat?

Hi,
I noticed your post as I was doing further research on surgical intervention to remedy GERD symptoms. We traded posts a few months ago. The last time we talked, you were going in for laparoscopic surgery. How did your surgery go? Did it eliminate your symptoms in the throat?

Please a questin if I may can gerd hiatus and lpr cause the acid to affect your sinuses and plugged up ears since there both connected to the throat I have this plus the burning swallowing problem and could this cause me to be swallowing air with severe bloating? Thanks
