? GERD???: Have several? 's. With Gerd you're having stomach contents come back up your esophagus to your throat. It could look a little phlegm to you occasionally but most of the time I would think phlegm would come from chest. Pantoprozole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor.It tells the parietal cells in the stomach stop producing acid. Should not give you dry nose in AM. ...Read more

Past 3 mornings I've been having GERD gastritis pain and burping for a few hours after I wake up. Seems ok at night. What cause pain in mornings?

It's not unusual: ... To have GERD symptoms in the mornings, considering that a lot of people's reflux is worse when they are lying flat in bed. If you have heartburn upon awakening, I would try antacid such as Tums (calcium carbonate). If you find that you need this more than 2 to 3 days a week, you might want to see your doctor for a trial of a medication. In the meantime, avoid any things that brings on your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

GERD symptoms. Taking Prilosec OTC/20mg every night at 8pm. 5 days passed & not working. Can I double up and take at morning & night for next 10 days?

See an MD: I think it is reasonable to treat run-of-the-mill heartburn with something like OTC Prilosec to see if it helps. When it does not, the problem needs to be discussed with a physician to gain assurance that it is heartburn and not something more serious. ...Read more

Is it recommended to take Prilosec in the morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at night for complete acid relief of GERD?

Is it recommended to take Prilosec in the morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at night for complete acid relief of GERD?

See your doctor.: If you are initially treating presumed acid reflux, Prilosec 20 mg once each morning about 20 minutes before eating any food is a good start. If it does not completely relieve your symptoms after two weeks, however, or if they recur after stopping the Prilosec, then I would seek out treatment long term through your family doctor. Anti-reflux measures are important too. Good luck. ...Read more

But stomach pains and gern usually do not cause left shoulder pain. So you need to inform your doctor about this. ...Read more

I've read gerd/heartburn is often caused by low stomach acid and not too much. Is this true or more of a holistic/natural type point of view?

I've read gerd/heartburn is often caused by low stomach acid and not too much. Is this true or more of a holistic/natural type point of view?

Not true: GERD is caused by contents in the stomach coming up through the esophagus, which in turn has a poorly understood cause. We think it is probably due to too many random openings of the valve. Certain medications can also cause the valve to open, as can stress, obesity, & problems with the stomach emptying to name a few. Hope this helps! ...Read more
