I have had wicked acid reflux for the past 2 months now. For 1 week I was unable to eat anything...I thought I was losing my mind. I have since cut out caffeine completely and am taking the PPI Prevacid which has helped a great deal. I also take a digestive enzyme with meals. I recently started a bit of a cardio program to relieve the stress that all this has brought on. (One can't help feeling stressed when a new symptom crops up every day!!)
I have to say my chief complaint now is the 'lump in throat' feeling. It isn't as bad in the morning, but progressively gets worse throughout the day. It sometimes feels fizzy and other times it feels like mucous. I seem to have developed a sinus condition as well, so don't know if this is more reflux or sinuses or a bit of both. It would seem all this is part and parcel of peri. I hope yours doesn't last very long and that you feel better soon.
