excessive yawning possibly symptom of gerd or lprAbout a year and a half ago I came down with gerd which i think is possibly lpr(larynopharangeal reflux. I've been to gastrologist was given a endoscopy and was found to have acid relflux, gastritis and a small haital hernia. Shortly after i first felt the syptoms of lump in the throat, tightntess around the throat, belching etc. I also noticed that I began to yawn a lot. In a five minute period I could yawn about 5-7 times. I don't have a problem sleelping unless I eat to clost to bedtime. But my yawns aren't tired yawns or they don't feel that way. I don't know what this is but I think it may be related to the gerd. I've read about excessive yawning being linked to the vagus nerve. I'm scheduled to see a neurologist but would rather take a more natural approach at solving this. I do notice that the yawning sometimes begins about 2 hours after I eat and it's doesn't happen always after I eat. And I wouldn't care If I yawned 20 times in a minute but with each yawn i feel a tight tense discomfort in my throat almost as if it will be stuck that way or spasm or something. Please help. Have taken natrum phos for gerd and seems to be helping a great deal. But mostly this bothers me.

Use 2 tablets Nat Phos after lunch and dinner regularly and see if your yawns can be stopped. If they are not helped, I shall indicate another remedy to help your problem.
