Loss taste may be gerd

I lost my sense of taste a few weeks ago. Mostly sweets. It comes back sometimes but always goes back out. I also have a sore throat and phlegm. Smell appears fine. The doctor thinks I may have GERD because of the throat issues and I do burp a lot. When I do burp there is no taste to it like heartburn but he says that there doesn't have to be. I took my first pill today and today was a decent tasting day. Within four hours of taking the pill my taste was gone again. I how this is a coincidence. I had tried 75 mg of Zantac before and didn't see a difference either way. Could taking the Tecta be making my taste worse if my issue is in fact not gerd? Also can it cause constipation? Antibiotics for example give me severe constipation. I'm starting to get very depressed with the los ...

GERD and Globas sensation

Hi, Thank you for the help. I am suffering with GERD since quite some time. Earlier days I used to have some heart burn and it would relieve from anti-acid tables and syrups. However, from past 2-3 years the acid reflux has become worse, with lot of choking sensation in throat, heaviness in throat, un-easiness in breathing and it gets worse when I go for bed, each time I need to cough and drink water to make my-self a bit comfortable. This sensation remains most of the day when I take some citric foods and in nights I can’t sleep. I tried elevating the front portion of bed and going for bed 2 hours after a meal, however, these artifacts were proved to be of not much help. I am on Neksium 40mg daily one before food and Gaviscon syrup after food only at night, this table relieves th... ...

Apple Cider Vinegar for GERD

My mother was taking Omeprazole for about a year for her GERD, and she started to develop a severe side effect which is generally unreported - extreme depression. Needless to say I urged her to stop that medication and take a hard look at some natural supplements for her diet. Being at her wit's end, she did some research and came across individuals who had reported supplementing Apple Cider Vinegar (RAW, ORGANIC) into their daily diets, and it had helped to regulate their digestive issues.

I have been on xalkori for about a year now; diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer that mets to the pancreas. Lately, I have been waking up in the middle of the night with really bad acid reflux... wondering if anyone else taking Xalkori has experienced this. ## I have been on Xalkori for 8 months and i have sometimes experienced acid reflux as well, my doctor said he wasn't sure Xalkori could be blamed for that.

So what i do now is that i drink a glass of water with a little baking soda before going to bed and it seems to work well against the acidity in the stomach. Moreover, I put an extra pillow under my head and it's much better like this. I think that a light dinner can partly solve the proble... ...

folvite tablet good for gerd

I am on raciper 40 mg can I have folvite 5mg as I am on restricted diet. Can u help me with right diet chart ## I really can't tell you much, without knowing what dietary restrictions you have. There are many ways, in which, someone's diet can be restricted medically, some people have to watch their sodium intake, for some people it is strictly due to GERD, for others it is due to food allergies, it is also possible to have more than one. I will gladly help, but you need to be a little more specific.
