Hi! I am 38 and suffering from acid reflux and am wondering if anyone has the same symptoms as me. My primary dr just put me on 40 mg of prilosec 2x daily but it's not doing much. I'm seeing a cardiologist to double check and make sure my heart isn't involved, and I need to make an appt to get scoped. In the meantime, I am going crazy with symptoms:

throat feels very hot, uncomfortable, but not typical "heartburn"
bumps come and go (like a small blister) in back of my mouth
throat pain, raw feeling that goes into my ear
feeling of gas in chest
chest pain, or a fluttery, nervous feeling in chest
feelking of something stuck in my throat
and my new, scary symptom is muscle fatigue. I was tested for anemia and thyroid and both came back OK, so is the muscle fatigue from reflux?? It's scary feeling this way.

Re: new here

Your symptoms relate to AR/GERD and you are on the correct treatment. I have the same and there are some strange symptoms with this. I haven't heard of this one but others possibly have. Also check the side effects of the medication you are on as this could be one of them. If so there are others your Dr could switch you to. In addition to the PPis you can take GAVISCON in between, I checked this with my own Dr and he agreed.
The Scopes are advisable to see what is going on.
Good Luck, Solofelix.
