Posted on Thu, 14 May 2015
Question: In Nov. 2014, I had severe burning in the throat, swalloing pain, wound lime pain. i was under a lot of stress at the time- job and personal. It was diagnosed as acid reflux by the primary doctor. I live in the US but i got my endoscopy and ultrasound by a renouned Gastrroenterologist. No biopsy, but was told non-erosive gerd and was prescribed Panacid from
Dec to Mar-end. I stopped taking in mid Mar as an ENT doctor asked me to stop antacids if i couldanage with diet, off late my pain is ok , i am in some work related stress, more IT work, worry of the family and now burning in my throat is constant. Shoukd i go for another endoscopy though i had one on Dec 24. Is pantacid safe, can this be taken if one gets pregnant while on it. Is this burning due to anxiety or gerd. Thanks

Brief Answer:
Anxiety adds to GERD.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
GERD is a common condition now a days.Anxiety will add to this and aggravate the symptoms.
I prefer Rabeprazole along with Levosulpiride tablet rather than plain Proton pump inhibitor like Pantaprazole or Rabeprazole alone.
please avoid spicy food,carbonated drinks etc.
Smoking and Alcohol will aggravate the symptoms.
I prefer you to go for another Endoscopy and exclude Duodenal or Gastric ulcer due to H.pylori infection.
I also add Syrup containing Sucralfate to my patients with similar complaints.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
