    Yes, I get awful post nasal drip as a result of reflux. I also get thick blockage and a dry runny nose that often bleeds. Reflux can cause sinus symptoms that resemble allergy symptoms.

    I can feel the drainage in my nose going down my throat, causes excessive throat clearing and irritation. It often makes me gag. I have to keep swallowing in an effort to clear it.

    Ditto on the post-nasal drip...it's disgusting. It's bad enough we have to go through all this stomach/gerd/reflux stuff, but do we also have to be tortured with sinus problems?

    Post-nasal drip is my primary symptom. It causes the throat clearing and is very annoying!!! I've had this now for 14 months and not sure what to do. Nexium and Zantac caused bad side effects, so I feel stuck right now. UGH!

    I too have that! Its emabrrasing when your talking to somebody and you just suddenly sound like a recorder on slow mo! So it means that when you have GERD it literally affects all your insides! from head to the back door is that it? do you guys take medication for that?? and does anyone of you feel like your throat is rawafter drinking water? I seem to feel that

    chikkie14:

    It would seem that yes, GERD does affect us top to bottom! I currently take Prevacid 30 mg once a day. I also take a digestive enzyme with my main meals. It seems to have taken care of a lot of the discomfort, though most of the time I don't feel like I did pre-GERD! I have had the raw throat feeling, so most of the time I drink warm beverages such as cammomile tea. They seem to make my throat feel better...but it's never long-lasting.
    Awful thing this is...hope to be rid of it soon & permanently!
    Good luck to you,

    Dee
