Gerd, acid reflux and lprHi,
Starting about a year and a half a go now I've had symptoms of what seams to be lpr(laryngopharangealreflux) based on research I've done on the net and consultations with several doctors. I went to a gastrologist who did and endoscopy and was told I have acid reflux, some gastritis and minor hiatal hernia. What I experience not everyday but a few days of the week and not all in one day is a lump in the throat sensation, Tightness around my throat area, slight burning in my stomach, belching, and the strangest of all is yawning which will happen about 2-3 hours after I eat. I could yawn about 10 times in ten minutes sometimes. The yawning bothers me the most because my throat feels tight as it is so the yawning doesn't help. About 6 months ago I developed a problem with sleeping at night if I ate to close to bed time. I think it was the gastritis and feeling of fullnes in my upper abdomen that did it. Would wake up every 15 to 30 minutes with kind of sleep apnea feeling. Since then I have not had this reoccur except for two times. I have been on Prilosec for a litle over 6months now at 20mg twice a day. I do drink Aloe vera gel also. I think I'm overdue for getting off the prilosec. I am am a 35 year old male 5'5" 150lbs latin never had any history of illness or disease. I have lived on orange juice almost all my life may 4 12oz glasses a day if not more. Not anymore though have quit it for about a year now. I try to eat healthy not have alcohol or smoke. What would you suggest. Thank you for any help you can offer if you need more info please ask. Any idea about this yawning. Thanks again

Dose is 2 tablets taken after lunch and dinner. You should experience almost immediate relief, say within 20 minutes after your first dose.
Eat small meals to stabilize your digestive system. Do not sleep for 2 hours after dinner.
Stop all other drugs you are now taking. No orange juice as this is acidic and may have caused your problem.

Stop your Zantac immediately and start on Nat Phos 6x as suggested above and report progress the day after.
