Re: Daily Struggle - LPR Advice Please

I too have an endoscopy booked.

Started getting headaches last week so I went to the doc again, They have decided that due to the fact i have been on the omezrapole for over a month and the symptoms have not changed, they can justify the endoscopy. had a blood test as well for everything under the sun i think.

Waiting to see what those results are, I personally think this is all anxiety. I've had a tough year. a really tough year. I am anxious about health issues anyway. I think my body is reacting to the high levels of stress I have been under.

I have stopped taking the omezrapole. no difference really. wake up with slightly more mucus that normal.

The new thing is the headaches. sudden random dizzyness for maybe 5 seconds. and a feeling of dred. I think this is a panic attack. but I do not know.

the way I see it. I was fine before. I will find a way to be fine again.

Re: Daily Struggle - LPR Advice Please

Just to Keep you all updated,

I finally had my Nasal Endoscopy and this has confirmed LPR or Silent Reflux.

I will now attempt to make changes to fix this.

Thanks all.

Re: Daily Struggle - LPR Advice Please

Glad you finally confirmed what it was.
I've had a chronic tightness in my throat for over a year now and it's been driving me insane. For a long time I was convinced that it was LPR, however after 6 months of taking omeprazole and after finding that the diet didn't make any difference I stopped.
Despite this though, apparently stress in general can cause a lot of things to happen in your throat muscles (or so the doctors tell me), and I've also seen many stories of people getting rid of their LPR symptoms from taking antidepressants. I know it's not exactly the same, but I do believe that there is a huge link between globus and lpr.
I'm going to try and look for some herbal remedies for my throat tightness. As of now, I've tried taking both valerian root and l-theanine but I still haven't gotten any results yet. However, if I do find something that works I will make a post about it.
Anyway, really hope you guys find a cure!

Re: Daily Struggle - LPR Advice Please

Hey all, I'm also struggling with this.

- my throat is sore / inflammed daily, getting worse after meal
- therefore, my ears and eyes also sore
- frequent choking / losing breath / wake up during the night sleep
- warm fluid in right throat-ear
- stomach gurgling which goes up to the throat. Sometimes it's just in the thoat

And, yeah, I guess anxiety plays huge part to my throat

@Fishmanpa: I read about your low FODMAP suggestion. Could you tell me how many years have you been dealing with:
- reflux
- is it LPR
- taking meds (I read you take it like a candy in one of your posts)

After I read more about FODMAP I immediately tried eliminating just some foods and I think I feel better, GERD-wise. The problem here is that I think I have histamine intolerance too, as whenever I eat things like lime etc. that has high histamine on them, I got LPR / allergic reaction. I know doing both low FODMAP and histamine diet can really deplete me, but I'm willing to do anything to control my GERD as I'm really frustrated knowing that, medically-wise, GERD can only be cured with surgery. At least, I think I'm going a bit aggresive toward my diet for now, and then later I can add again more heathy foods.

Thanks all.
