Re: upper respiratory allergies - question
Acid Reflux. The upper respiratory issues are being caused by gaseous acid in the throat and nasal passages. The stomach pains may actually be lower-esophogeal reflux, caused by regular reflux or a hiatal hernia.
I don't have the energy right now to fight for my point of view, so I'm going to ask you to simply visit the acid reflux message board and post more detailed symptoms. Secondly, see your doctor for a prescription of a good proton-pump inhibitor (a type of acid reflux medication). Since you are experiencing upper respiratory symptoms as well, that indicates you have LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux) as well as regular reflux (GERD - the stomach pain). Since you have LPR, you'll need a double dose of a PPI. So you'll need 80 mg of Nexium a day instead of 40 mg, for instance.
Do a little research on "GERD", "gastroesophogeal reflux", "LPR", "laryngopharyngeal reflux", and "silent reflux" and you may be surprised.
