Acid reflux: You most likely have a problem with acid reflux. It is often a long-term problem. I would recommend that you avoid any particular foods which give you problems, particularly tomatoes,onions, chocolate, and citrus fruits. Tobacco and alcohol also contribute.

When your trying to heal your esophagus you shouldn't eat more acids? What if your taking meds and your still hurting is it becuz of the acidic food.

When your trying to heal your esophagus you shouldn't eat more acids? What if your taking meds and your still hurting is it becuz of the acidic food.

Correct: Eating or drinking acid things will make the esophageal irritation worse. It may take time for the meds to work. If you are very pregnant, you probably have reflux and should stay upright as much of the time as you can (even to sleep) and take an antacid whenever you hurt as well as at bedtime or if you wake up in the night. ...Read more

No: Although acid reflux has been reported to be associated with sinusitis, I am unaware of any double-blind study to support this link. Even if it does, I 'd doubt that it reaches the frontal sinus area. If this is a frequent problem in the absence of overeating or very tight garment, you may need treatment. ...Read more

Globus sensation?: Do you experience the feeling of a ball or lump in the back of your throat that you have to swallow past? If so, this is "globus." alternatively, you may have laryngo-esophageal reflux without heartburn. Sometimes, the actual swallowing mechanism may be impaired due to "spasms" or cricopharyngeal ;/or esophageal dysmotility. A GI or ENT specialist is a good starting point for evaluation. ...Read more

Sounds likeheartburn: hope your prescribing docs have discussed other lifestyle modifications with you besides not eating acidic foods? alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, late meals etc can all contribute. are you really on two different PPIs and an h2-blocker? you should discuss this in more detail with a good PCP or GI physician. ...Read more
