Question Relation between sinus drainage, throat clearing and Acid Reflux?

I have had acid reflux disease for several years. After running all the tests they did surgery to repair a very large hiatal hernia. At the same time, he did the "Nissen" surgery. It has only been a few days, but the main reason I sought out the surgery is: I constantly clear my throat. I also have sinus drainage real bad. Been to an Allergist. All the doctors seem to think it is related to the reflux, but really don't give me a good explanation as to how it is related. So if the reflux is fixed... why do I still have the throat clearing and drainage?? One of the doctors finally told me it was 50%/50% on whether it would get better or not. Does anyone have any experiences they would share? The throat clearing drives my wife crazy!

Re: Relation between sinus drainage, throat clearing and Acid Reflux?

Hi there! Sorry you are suffering and I hope the surgery is helping you. I have relfux and allergies and they go hand in hand. I have food and environmental allergies. With the drainage from that it can kick up my reflux and the reflux can make my nose run. I have to medicate both and work on my diet all the time.

Are you dealing with mucus? This is a big factor. I have it alot and am constantly clearing my throat. I am so tired of doing that. It cause more mucus too by doing that. Do you ever get where you aren't sure in the mucus is coming up or going down? It could be both so I am treating both. You very well may have some food allergies. Get tested if you can. I was suprised at all the things I am allergic too. Its going to take some before I get all the things removed and to not cheat. For me one of them is chocolate. No fair huh?

Anyhow...hang in there. Always here to talk! Take care!
