Re: I am 65 and cannot speak clearly Doc said it is due to Acid Reflux any suggestion

We may be able to help you with more detailed information. When did this start, what do you mean by not being able to speak clearly, can you form your words, or can you only talk quietly, or is it you cannot think to speak clearly? Thankyou

Re: I am 65 and cannot speak clearly Doc said it is due to Acid Reflux any suggestion

Your doctor likely prescribed a PPI to reduce the production of stomach acid.

I would suggest eating/drinking substances that are soothing to your throat. I have used DGL (can purchase at healthfood store), aloe vera juice and slippery elm lozenges to help heal my throat/vocal chords which can be irritated by the reflux.

Try to sleep with your head up and/or on your left side to keep the acid from backing up into your esophagus and throat at night.

Hope these suggestions help.
