Everytime I get white tongue cause either by GERD or thrush I notice I get swollen lymph nodes on the side of chest that is sore, is that GERD related?

Everytime I get white tongue cause either by GERD or thrush I notice I get swollen lymph nodes on the side of chest that is sore, is that GERD related?

Need more details: White coat on tongue is not always thrush. Do you smoke? Are you sick? How do you know it is thrush? If it is thrush, you need to explore the reason for it. You need to spend some time with your DR. If your Dr fails to provide satisfaction, request a consult with a Dr of internal medicine. ...Read more

I just had a severe GERD episode, I can't talk my throat is like burnt from the bile, also my lymph nodes in neck are very enlarged. Should I be concerned?

I just had a severe GERD episode, I can't talk my throat is like burnt from the bile, also my lymph nodes in neck are very enlarged. Should I be concerned?

YES: That is severe GERD. If you have never had endoscopy to look into esophagus then you probably should consider that. The enlarged lymph nodes would not really be related to the GERD and may represent something else that is going on with you. You should be examined by a doctor. ...Read more

Sharp throat pain when swallowing, turning head. 2 days later sore throat on left w/ swollen lymph node. No fever or cough. I have my tonsils and GERD?

Pharyngitis: This may be Strep throat, viral infection, conceivably due to your GERD, or of other causes. If acute you should be tested for Strep and treated if positive or if the physical findings are highly suspicious. Cannot possibly diagnose this over the internet. ...Read more

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Unlikely: I would see a doctor about the swollen glands and lightheadedness. Unlikely related to hh. Hiatal hernia and acid reflux could cause the esophagus to spasm or even develop scar tissue and narrowing. This would cause the feeling of food sticking or catching. I would see your doctor about getting a test to check your esophagus. If not already taking acid medication twice a day, recommend doing so. ...Read more

Swollen submandibular for 2 weeks. Diagnosed with TMD (limited opening, jaw pain) and GERD (had scope). Is swelling related, or sign of larger issue?

Infection/ inflamef: Most of the time swelling of submandibular glands is related to an infection in the head/ neck area in the side of the head of the swollen gland. From a tooth, gum infection, throat or upper respiratory condition, oral cancer, trauma, ear infection, sinusitis or many other conditions can result in swollen glands. Have a comprehensive oral exam. ...Read more

Tender underarm ribs, no swollen glands. Stomach bloating could it be from gerd/ibs.

Tender underarm ribs, no swollen glands. Stomach bloating could it be from gerd/ibs.

See your physician: It's hard to know what to make of your symptoms without more information. Trying to make sense of disparate symptoms without knowing the the specifics of your medical history, physical exam and specific answers to focused questions is impossible. It's possible your tenderness underarm is unrelated to your other symptoms. For a proper diagnosis see your physician. ...Read more

When my stomach swollen & heavyness then my breast also swollen & become heavy why it happenes. I have small hiatus hernia + gerd.

When my stomach swollen & heavyness then my breast also swollen & become heavy why it happenes. I have small hiatus hernia + gerd.

May be 2 problems: The symptoms you describe may be 2 differnt problems. The abdominal bloating and breast heaviness may be related to changing hormones, specifically the estrogen and Progesterone levels. You should see your gynecologist for an exam and to have your hormones checked. A hiatal hernia and gerd will give you symptoms of reflux-heartburn, chest pain, chronic cough... It does not cause breast swelling. ...Read more

Will barium swallow test tell you for sure if you got lpr or gerd? Ent says voice box swollen but he treating me for allergies and lpr he don't know

Will barium swallow test tell you for sure if you got lpr or gerd? Ent says voice box swollen but he treating me for allergies and lpr he don't know

This is a tough one: Even if the barium swallow confirms reflux it doesn't confirm that its the cause of your any voice problems. It is reasonable to treat both post nasal drip and gerd but it may take a long time to heal especially if it started out as a cold. ...Read more

I have swollen painless uvula, weakness, occasional cold and headache, ibs, gerd. I kissed a girl who had vomited some time before. Do I have hiv/aids?

I have swollen painless uvula, weakness, occasional cold and headache, ibs, gerd. I kissed a girl who had vomited some time before. Do I have hiv/aids?

From that? No.: From kissing? No, you cannot get HIV from kissing. Very very very low risk. However, if you did more with her, like oral sex or intercourse, that risk goes up. Also if there is more personal history there you may be at risk. Most likely it sounds like you may have a notable viral illness causing upset stomach and throat issues. Truthfully the symptoms fit strep more than anything. ...Read more
