Hi,
I have been diagnosed with GERD. I am using omeprazole on a daily basis. Recently my cough has gotten much worse even when taking the medicine. The coughing has given me a horrible sore throat. I fell like the Acid Reflux is burning a hole in my throat, is that possible?

I have suffered for a long time with a post nazal drip and severe acid stomach which an old physician used to treat with nose spray and a short course of antibiotics twice per year when the alergy seasons were at their height. Now, all I can hear is about GERD and my stomach is constantly sour, sore with flatulence and burning. The old physician dies and since one doctor diagnosed GERD, all others seem to follow without any reference to past successful treatment.

My husband spent about 4 hrs in the local ER on Sunday with epigastric pain. After blood work and a CT scan that were normal, the ER doctor diagnosed him with GERD. He is following a low residue diet, using Prevacid, and taking Lortab for break through pain. Is there anything else he could do? He is a worrier, and is concerned he isn t feeling better already.
