'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

Now i am confused! Why did you people start to taking PPI's. What was it if not reflux? I started myself because i have open daiphragm and hernia that is causing reflux. I had scars in my esophagus last january, started nexium and now the scars are gone. Still doing surgery though!

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir
I had an alleged ulcer from nsaid use so the doc put me on ppis to reduce the acid so that the ulcer could heal upon trying to stop the ppis acid started pitching into my oesophagus.

Matthew Kilborn
I had irritation in my esophagus from over eating and drinking too much over a short period of time. doctor pushed it on me instead of just telling me to change my diet.

Bruce Kaechele
Most GPs will prescribe PPIs based upon symptoms or many people self diagnose and self medicate. Research has shown that over 30% of those on PPIs have no medical reason to be on the drugs.

Elizabeth Rudd Greene
I was given PPIs when I had painful swallowing. I rebounded after stopping. I started eating dairy (ie, yogurt) again. I haven't had a PPI in over a week and feel about 90% and am sleeping comfortably.

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir
Elizabeth how long did u take the ppis and how much?

Elizabeth Rudd Greene
I was told to take one a day in the morning. I took about 30. They definitely helped till I tried to get off them. Then I started doing some research. I'm somewhat casein intolerant which is why I stopped eating dairy, but I'd rather deal with that than the GERD. I feel much better..I'm not sure how long you take them matters. What matters is what you replace it with.

I feel good all day but when I lay down I feel acid in my esophagus going to my throat. Why?

Dee E Glass your muscle (forgot the name of it) could be weaking which can result in LPR which i have. The acid goes to my throat and does not stay in my chest area. https://www.webmd.com/heartburn-gerd/guide/laryngopharyngeal-reflux-silent-reflux#1

Sylvia Lopez Merila
Is thr a way to fix it or meds.

Dee E Glass
nexium helps me, I was on the max dose until the insurance changed my meds.

Maria S Conklin
Always do sleep in an inclined position ,it helps prevent acid from reaching up to the throat.

Michele Pratt
Gravity. Sleep on a wedge pillow or elevated mattress. The acid comes up the esophagus. Wait at least 3 hours after eating to go to bed. Take zantac or gaviscon before bed. And camomile tea with honey is soothing and relaxing an hour before bed. Low acid diet

Dee E Glass
Always try other stuff before the meds unfortunately, none of that worked for me so, meds were my only option.

Kaylen Shubrick Jackson
I sleep in a recliner that is in my couch. It's not the greatest. But it keeps me upright because I experience the same thing, as soon as I lay down, I feel it in my chest and throat. So sitting up all the time it is for now.

Destanie Hurt
Does anyone have constant aching pain in esophagus? Im not having reflux but i did few days ago and my
Throat is just aching deep and goes up into jaw almost.... is this common or should i be concerned?
Also when i breathe the spots that ache feel like air is hitting “fresh” skin and cause it to ache as soon as air hits??????? 😔 i have severe anxiety and im having panic attacks because its just to much.

Christina Councilor
I’ve been having weird pains in my jaw and it hurts when I chew and hard time swallowing I hate it.

David Wayne Freitas
My throat has hurt for months now. Its either from acid getting into my esophagus while sleeping or from an unknown food allergy.

Destanie Hurt
Itchy feeling? Mine just aches, i cant stand it ☹️.

David Wayne Freitas
Itchy sometimes, but kind of like there is a sore throat with a lumpy feeling.

Jon Howard
I have been having a burning throat for a week now, anyone have a solution to south the pain?

Destanie Hurt
I try gaviscon or how ever its spelled but it really soothes the burn just not the achy.

Jon Howard
I'll look into it thank you. I wa a thinking about buying aloe juice seeing if that would help also.

BurntParsnip Wir Galvus
Make sure you don't buy aloe juice with citric acid in it. It's in a lot of them and it makes my throat worse. There's a brand called 'Gerorge's' that omits it.

Irfan Haider
Acid Reflux is stuck of meal in the esophagus ?? Please tell me ?

Lana Dee
No acid reflux is whe the stomach acid splashes up into the esophagus. But the feeling of food stuck can be a symptom too, along with burning and regurgitating food up.

Melissa Yerty
I had food sticking in my esophagus and I had a stricture. I've had my esophagus dilated twice now.

Melissa Yerty
There are many conditions that can cause this. Motility disorders of the esophagus such as achalasia, nutcracker esophagus, and diffuse esophageal spasms. Gastro reflux can cause scarring in the esophagus due to the acid refluxing back up which leads to strictures. It's hard to tell without proper testing. Have you had a barium swallow or video flouroscopy with food? A recent endoscopy? A manometry test for motility disorders?
