Hi ! Good morning. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.
If I were your doctor, I would advise you for an ENT check up for your repeated symptoms of sore throat
. Once this part is covered , then on the GERD
aspect if this is the cause, the following might help you out:
1) Elevate the head end of the bed with two blocks on each side, so that the regurgitation does not occur while lying down, and the contents of esophagus
and stomach flow down with gravity.
2) Some modification in your diet like more of roughage, enough liquids, avoidance of oily, fried, and fast food
3) Regular routine exercises like morning walk depending on your medical fitness.
4) Prescription for a prokinetic agent and a proton pump
) for symptomatic relief and to have a control on the acid production and facilitate movement of gastric contents downwards.
I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
