'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Does anyone suffer from both gerd and allergies (asthmatic symptoms)?

Does anyone suffer from both gerd and allergies (asthmatic symptoms)? And if so, do you have a hard time knowing which one you're dealing with? What are a few things you do to determine where your symptoms are stemming from?

I was reading about this and apparently these asthma type symptoms are due to reflux going into the lungs.

Natalie Tarrant Feagin
I have both. I will say that when my controller med was switched to advir (the highest dose) my gerd symptoms reduced, especially the coughing.

Michele Pratt
Yes.i finally saw,an allergist and got my allergies under control. Now my Gerd is a lot better

Constance Yager
So you're saying its my allergies aggravating my gerd

Michele Pratt
Could be. It definitely was aggravating my gerd

Constance Yager
Last week i was suffering from typical gerd symptom.. heart burn, belching, hiccups. This week its all asthmatic symptoms... coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing at night. I took my inhaler last night and everything seemed to just get worse. I was up all night. Anything health related especially breathing causes me anxiety

Michele Pratt
I did allergy testing and found I'm allergic to so many things! I avoid what I'm allergic to, take a daily antihistamine, get weekly allergy shots, ant take zantac which also has a histamine response. My gerd really improved by treating my allergies

I had a doctor tell me my reflux has caused asthma. I’d never had it before.
