Mouth and throat pain with GERD
I have a few ailments which I feel are connected, but am not sure

Hiatus hernia (with tear and inflammation)
Acid reflux

My main problem at the moment is sore (ish) throat with ear pain, sore hard palate and sore on lip. My whole mouth feels kind of dry and sore, made worse by mainly cold things (they irriated the roof of my mouth and throat. Then when I have swallowed whatever I am eating I get pain from the hernia and then the IBS kicks in.
I have tried loads of meds including Nexium, Zoton, Gaviscon, Ibuprofen, Tramadol etc etc.
Has anyone else experienced this sequence of events???
Jane :eek:

Re: Mouth and throat pain with GERD
I have acid reflux and specifically I believe LPR.
My throat lately has been raw and I'm coughing alot. I also get tongue and mouth sores, and burning in mouth and tongue sometimes. so yeah, I can relate. The meds haven't helped me much...just trying to live one day at a time...:yawn:

Re: Mouth and throat pain with GERD
Thanks for the reply - what is LPR? My mouth sores are sometimes like blood blisters and sometimes like white ulcers - the same??

Re: Mouth and throat pain with GERD
LPR is laryngopharyngeal reflux and is more specific to the upper part of the neck and head. you can look it up on this board there's lots of discussion on it, or google it. The treatment is higher dosage of PPIs for it from what I've read but both doctors I go to don't think it's different than GERD. I'm going again tomorrow and will ask the Nurse I'm seeing what she knows about it.

I've had both sores in my mouth, mostly the white ones which are canker sores and very common, I've also had the blood red ones. I think the jury's still out on what causes them, virus or bacteria, or autoimmune or reflux?:rolleyes:

Re: Mouth and throat pain with GERD
yeah, blisters in my throat for a year and a half now. white open sores when it's worse but now mostly just bright red spots all over.
