Bad reflux during a twin pregnancy. Was diagnosed with a small sliding hiatus hernia

Hi all. Had h pylori 10+ years ago. Started suffering bad reflux during a twin pregnancy. Was diagnosed with a small sliding hiatus hernia after pregnancy when symptoms didn't go away. Put on Nexium for several years. Came off the Nexium symptoms are non existent UNTIL... I get a cold?! EVERY time gauranteed on day 2 of a cold I get TERRIBLE reflux symptoms. Burning throat burping constant waterbrash where I have to constantly spit salavia into a bucket. It's gross! Nausea.. upper tummy pain/bloating. My question is all the doctors think it's strange associated with a cold. No meds give any relief with the flare up and it normally lasts for 2 solid days no sleep. etc Day to day I'm fine. It's literally just if i get a cold. DOES ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCE THIS PLEASE?

My symptoms are strange too. I have times where I feel like I'm cured and other times when I feel like I can't even handle plain water. I've noticed that a wide variety of factors such as being stressed and having a viral sickness make it worse. Is it possible that you're more stressed out when you have a cold? I know stress plays a big role with my reflux.

Like me today... I cant even drink water without it burning. And I just feel so nauseous. I don't know if it's the nasal drip? I have bad sinuses too. I'm always stressed and anxious lol. It's so hard to understand!

Courtney Desiray
Same that's why I'm trying to work on being less stressed to see if it helps. Its hard to say when it could be a variety of factors causing flare ups. It could be your cold, mixed with stress and gerd.

Kerrin Barnes
Yes. Completely symptom free but the last 6 colds over a few years I always get it bad. Trying to figure out if anyone else gets the second flare up.. good luck to you 🌈

Courtney Desiray
Thank you good luck as well ☺ I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you :) the good thing for me is I know it only lasts a couple of days... Thank goodness. But while it's here it's horrible. X

Courtney Desiray
That's really good that it only lasts a few days. It is horrendous though >.< I feel your pain

I have excess mucous too. I constantly hock it out.
