Can the effects of reflux/LPR/GERD even be felt in the nasal passage? I feel like nose is narrowed and feels like a mild burning irritated sensation
Possibly.: However, there can be multiple other explanations for these kind of symptoms also.

Could reflux/LPR/GERD etc. cause water to feel cold running down the esophagus? I have had reflux symptoms. I have now noticed this with the water.

Stress not by self: Stress may worsen gerd symptoms, but unlikely to be only cause of your chronic heartburn. In the past stress was thought to be the culprit in a variety of gastrointestinal problems, including ulcers and inflammatory bowel diseases such as crohn's disease.

Why would somwone 37 be diagnosed with GERD LPR diverticulosis chronic gastritis tublar adnoma and hyperplastic polyps. Did my system just give up?
Clarification: Diverticulosis is very common, and most people live with it without any problem. Gerd is very common, just try to understand what triggers it, and take medication when you need it.

Tubular needs follow up. ...Read more
