Reflux Oesophagitis :: Acid Reflux/Heartburn - Throat Itch And Deeper Voice
Aug 2, 2015
I am a 22 year old male. Along with my other issues I also suffer from the above. My endoscopy showed (Mild G1 reflux oesophagitis and minor duodenitis. Some bile reflux in stomach). I am currently taking Esomeprazole 40 mg per day which I believe is not helping. Everyone has said how my voice sounds much deeper and different than before, and the top of my throat is always itching. My teeth feel really bad, I know over time Acid can make them really bad. I have had several appointments cancelled by the Gastroenterologist at my local hospital and I am due to see him in September. I have tried all remedies etc but nothing seems to help.

For the past while I have been experiencing issues after eating. After eating it feels like something is stuck in my throat and I constantly have to clear my throat. This lasts about 20 minutes and it slowly goes away. However, in addition to this I also experience my voice going hoarse while it is occurring. This only happens after eating, not during. I have no issues during meals, but about 5 minutes after I get the sensation in my throat and my voice will go in and out. It bothers me and causes me to avoid going out to eat because I feel rude constantly clearing my throat. It is quite irritating, but I am unsure if it is something I should bother my doctor about. For the record, I am 25 and I have been experiencing this for 1-1.5 years.

I am 42, male and overweight
Recently I have had the most frightening experience of waking up in the middle of the night choking and unable to breathe. It lasts about 60 seconds but feels like 10 minutes
The doctor says I could be inhaling acid whilst asleep.
Has anyone information or experience of this and know what can be done about it - its VERY scary.
Okay, so here are the facts: I have a 1 cm hiatal hernia and reflux. This I have been diagnosed with. I changed my whole diet - very bland and eating next to nothing. For about a week or two I was feeling better and eating all the same foods. However, last night I ate the same meal I eat every night -my chicken and apple sauce at 5:00. At 8:00 the intense pains started in the chest and went on and off until 1:00am with feeling like I was having a heart attack. Pains in the back and chest and under my breastbones. Finally took my spasm meds (docs thought I was having esophageal. spasms) but that didn't work to help the pain. Any thoughts - does anyone experience this horrible chest pain. It is horribly painful feeling like my esophagus is being pulled, stabbed, and crushed. Its excruciating!

I have various back problems I have posted about in the back section but due to this I'm on 500mg of Naprosyn 2x a day. I also take 20mg of omeprazole 2x a day at the same time as the naprosyn as it was giving me heartburn. I started on 20mg but went up to 40mg because I was still getting the heartburn which is now acid reflux bringing me close to vomiting.

I've told my doctor about this and the latest thing I'm on is peptac liquid at bed time but I'm also taking it after meals if I have to.
It doesn't seem to be improving. My doctor said if it doesn't improve soon she will have to take me off it. The only reason she hasn't done yet is I am already in so much pain and the naprosyn is one of the few things that has helped.
I also have noticed I'm beginning to have difficulty swallowing hard or dense foods. Soft ones are fine but now I'm kind of afraid of and completely avoiding anything hard or dense. Could this be to do with the acid reflux?
I am going to ask my mum to help me raise the head of my bed (as due to my back problem propping myself up on pillows just makes things worse) but is there anything else I can do?
I'm really worried about developing a peptic ulcer.. it's the last thing I read right now. Can anyone tell me what the symptoms are I need to watch out for? If this carries will I end up with permanent acid reflux as well does anyone know?
I see my doctor again on the 4th of November so will discuss it all with her again then but I just am worried in the meanwhile.
having new symptom now... Along with Polymyalgia, Prednisone I and other RA drugs, I'm now experiencing extreme thirst. Water just doesn't quinch. I drink atleast 8 cups a day. Nothing else.

I was diagnosed with having severe acid-reflux problems at the hospital. I was told that nothing can be done for me....? How can that be?

Plus, I have to wait 12 weeks for an endoscopy to check for a hiatus hernia!
My main issue is that I feel as though I am choking after I eat any food. It is incredibly severe. I cannot function because of it. But, I don't have any acid in my mouth or burning. Do you have any choking?
I'm on nexium 20mg, and have tried 40mg. I've also had lansoprazole and omeprazole, but none have worked.
Is there an op that can be done to prevent the acid reflux?
4 weeks ago I had a heartburn for 2 days and friend thought I should have it checked out. At the time I slept well but was a bit sore. Dr prescribed PPI straight away which I took without checking the implications. Since then my life has been terrible.

I have not responded to single, double PPI doze and now ranitidine added. Today a mobilum added. My symptoms have actually hugely deteriorated. Huge reflux, constant heartburn for a week - no sleep longer than 1 hour per day on now elevated bed. I went to GP again (they are fed up with me) and ended up in A&E with pain yesterday. Now on codeine painkiller.
I had endoscopy at the beginning (privately) - week after PPI, which revealed some gastritis but I have not stomach pains or symptoms (no nausea, etc.). But since then symptoms have become so severe . GP is organising another endoscopy in a weeks time, but I am becoming desperate in coping with the pain (reflux and heartburn). No sleep, no respite...
This has been going on for about 3 months now, sometimes worse and sometimes barely noticeable.

I'm 24 years old, male.
I have no known allergies and i have tried different foods if possible for periods of time to no real effect.
The symptoms do not seem to point to a specific condition - it always lacks something to link it to a certain disease or problem.
Constipation/gas (usually feeling of fullness and the need to burp - which seems to help a little).
When worse, lumpy feeling in throat.
Sometimes feel as if its harder to breathe, tho actually i can breath just fine.
Eerie, empty feeling in left chest (seems to be generally wide spread hard to localize). Sometimes the feeling can click and get stonger suddenly.
Heart palpitations (not really sure if its actually due to skipping beats or just being strongly aware of heartbeat).
Rarely iv had pain radiate to my arm (can last longer, change location), or feel sharper pain in the left chest when breathing in (wont last for long).
When it gets worse, i seem to get some nausea - feeling the need to puke.
Rarely i may have mild heartburn.
The arm pain was worse during the first few weeks, haven't noticed it much anymore.
I do have somewhat "sitting" lifestyle and less physical exercise, i am not overweight, tho i may have few extra kg but overall its ok.
I gave up on coffee(for 3 months now), avoiding foods that might irritate stomach( acidic, spicy).
The arm pain, palpitations and eerie feeling in chest could be due to vagus nerve getting wrong signals together with potential anxiety (possibly developed early on - after all weird feeling in chest sends subconscious thoughts on heart).
I don't have any real pain - so can't be ulcers.
I lack constant heartburn - not a common GERD.
Gastritis of some kind? Tho no noticeable pain most of the time.
OH and PS! i am nonalcoholic 100% so alcohol cannot be the cause. Nether do i smoke. I don't eat junk food often.
Something very odd is going on with my body of late...

I am a 35 year old man whom most would consider to be generally healthy. I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and currently weigh in at 217 pounds. I enjoy weightlifting and mountain biking but spend a lot of time sat down in the office and at home. I probably exercise about 3-4 hours a week at present. I stopped smoking nearly 5 months ago and rarely drink alcohol.
Over the past 5-6 weeks I have cut out bread, refined sugar and refined salt from my diet and started to attend the gym on a regular basis. Over the past 3 weeks I have cut out all processed foods, GM meat and have introduced organic veg and fruit into my diet. I'm still eating meat but am very selective. Overall i've been feeling good about my change of lifestyle and people have been very complimentary as to the change in my appearance.
However, there has been a strange twist. On 2 occasions now i've felt ill after my favourite curry dish (a treat I would have once a week). At Nando's last week I experienced the most gut-wrenching and crippling stomach cramps 5 minutes after i finished eating - never experienced pain so intense before. Even when I tried to have my favourite rum n pepsi last Saturday, I didn't really enjoy the drink and also noticed a bit of discomfort in my esophagus. It seems that my body is rejecting all forms of junk food and sometimes violently so...
Last night I yet again had heartburn which prevented me from getting to sleep until after 2am. Sunday I didn't sleep until 3am. All in all I think i've had heartburn/reflux 7-8 times in the last 2 weeks... Today I'm at work n all of a sudden the pond water (spirulina) I drunk this morning has just come up to the back of my throat and I now have the sensation of this foul tasting liquid in my my gullet. Despite coughing, drinking and trying to clear my throat I can't get rid of this mucus-like liquid.
I've been super healthy of late. I'm eating extremely nutritious whole foods, I'm exercising regularly and sleeping well most nights. Generally I feel great, my skin is clearer, I've lost weight and I have more energy. So why the reflux?
What's weird is that I could probably count the number of times I've had reflux historically on one hand...
I'm wondering if this is just a temporary side-effect as I go through the process of cleansing my body. I am taking apple cider vinegar and probiotic yoghurt shots (not at the same time) so I wonder if the symptoms I am experiencing are a side effect of my gut flora coming back into balance...
I am 36 years old, I am suffering from heartburn regularly with a sharp pain under my left breast close to my sternum. I have been following a low carb diet for 3 months and started cycling regularly. I experience the pain and heartburn while cycling, bending and picking stuff up all the time. I went to the doctor in December last year who had put me on proton pump meds for a month and never had any symptoms. when I finished the course it came back. I do have a bad taste in my mouth all the time and my teeth als feels rough almost.

My gosh its 5 in the morning and I can't sleep because of my heartburn. I took zantac in the afternoon yesterday and I didn't take one before I went to bed. But man this is killing me it's horrible. And this baby is so freaking comfortable in my stomach. I feel like she's using my left rib as a blanket. Making mommy in pain.

I am waiting for my ENT appointment. I take Lansoprazole twice a day before food. I also take ginger capsules and enzymes. None of this seems to work. As soon as I have eaten it starts to burn in throat and nose. I only eat small meals regularly rather than a big meal and am very careful what I'm eating.
I don't drink anything other than fruit teas and water.
I don't eat any fatty foods or tomatoes. Only a very slight amount of dairy ie semi milk with porridge in the morning.
So, about three months ago, i noticed my stomach started to feel weird between breakfast and lunch. It's like an anxious, nervous, acid-y almost jittery feeling that's hard to describe. Yesterday was one of the worst times of it yet! I had my usual breakfast of hot quinoa topped with almond butter, a little maple syrup to sweeten, and bananas and strawberries. It was a pretty small amount, but just enough to fill me up. However, a half an hour later, I started to get that terrible acidic, nervous, anxious feeling that feels like i had a ton of vitamins on an empty stomach or something. So I ate a bunch of bagels to absorb any acid, and i felt great. This morning, I had a heartier breakfast of a vegetable tamale and some baked beans. I got that feeling again! So i ate and felt better. I usually don't get this feeling any other time of day, however, a few nights ago, i couldn't go to sleep because i had that feeling, but accompanied by hunger, so i got up, ate, felt great. Most of the time when I get this feeling after breakfast, it's after i had had a HUGE meal the night before. Is it acid reflux? I get heartburn after practically every meal. I don't know, i'm just SOOOOO afraid this is something terrible! Is it GERD?

I've been having issues with burping and bloating after eating. I tried the baking soda test to confirm low stomach acid, so I started supplementing with Betaine HCl. I had one pill with one digestive enzyme supplement at breakfast which was rice flake porridge with banana, ground sesame and ground sunflower seeds (I'm vegetarian and don't eat dairy either). I didn't have too much burping or bloating initially. Then at lunch time I did the same thing (one hcl one digestive enzyme), lunch was vegetables, rice noodles and tempeh. I experienced lots of bloating and upper stomach pains and a sort of tight feeling in my throat. These symptoms gradually have gotten worse throughout the day. Did I not have enough protein at lunch? Or are my digestive issues not related to low stomach acid?

I noticed around 6 years ago that I was getting heartburn on a daily basis, I didn't really know what it was at that time and soldiered for another few months before seeking medical attention.

The culprit at this time was regular ground black pepper so I cut this out.
For a while I hadn't had any problems until I came to Australia and changed my diet which now consists of nuts - Almonds, Walnuts and Peanut Butter and Oatmeal.
Over the last several weeks I have noticed my heartburn getting more worse and aggressive. Just seconds after eating peanut butter I get the symptoms and some 20-30 minutes after eating porridge or most cereals now I get the symptoms.
This change has only just happened to me and I do not wish to medicate, I would rather prevent. I do not want to see a doctor about this until I get healthcare insurance, then I will be happy to pursue medical treatment.
For now I would like to get information from people, preferably ones who are triggered by the same foods to see what I can do for my diet as it seems absurd to cut out cereals, wholegrains and peanuts.
Additional notes: I drink a lot of water, I rarely drink coffee or tea - if I do it is 1-3 cups a day, I drink alcohol a couple of times in a month, I exercise regularly, I keep my sugar low, I eat spicy foods which do not seem to affect my symptoms, I stay away from heavily processed carb or starchy foods, I only eat bananas as fruit and eat vegetables if I have them or they are served to me.
