GERD with sore throat

I have been diagnosed with GERD. I was given aciphex which I took for 5 weeks but that didn't help. now I am on Prevacid 2x a day for about 2 weeks now still not working. the only thing that works for the heartburn is to eat only foods that don't cause problem. I sleep fine and wake up fine but as the day progresses I get a sore throat and I have to clear my throat a lot. sometimes it feels like my throat is closing. Please help..can't take it anymore.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
describe all your physical and mental sufferings.

do you have acid eructations, sourish taste in the throat along with heartburn, do you have bloating of stomach on eating small quantity of food.

when did it all start, can you relate it to any alchohol abuse or taking too much oily food etc.

does the gas come up as eructations or go down as well.

does the eructation give you relief.

which time of the day you feel worst.

do you have constipation as well.

whats your general nature, your cravings and aversions.

do you like summer or winter.

I have prescribed Nat Phos 6x (biochemic) tablets for many patients with chronic GERD symptoms and they have responded to this remedy almost immediately after they used it for the first time.

I believe that you are a recent case of GERRD and you should snap out of your problem in a short while.

Dose is 3 tablets taken after 2 meals lunch and dinner.

You may like to know that Nat Phos also reduces weight by about a pound per week and also helps to overcome constipation. Some patients have reported that they cannot tolerate the full dose of 3 tablets as their stools go watery. If this occurs you may have to reduce the number of tablets per dose to just 2.

Report response in a few days after you use this remedy.

I would like to add that the reason for your sore throat is because the gastric juices which are the cause of your GERD have damaged your throat muscles and it may take a few weeks to get them back to normal.

You can use Arnica 6c in the wet dose to help the process of tissue repair and the dose is 1 teaspoonful of the remedy sipped twice daily.

The wet dose is made by inserting 3 pellets of the remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water which is shaken hard before you sip a teaspoonful.

thank you both for responding, in answer to your questions rishimba I am a under alot of stress physical and emotional. I don't have sourish taste in mouth. I do get alot of bloating. I do burp alot after I eat. This all started about 2 months ago, I had gone away for the weekend and did alot of fatty foods. I normally eat healthy all week but cheat on the weekends. I also exercise alot. That same weekend I was finishing my first week of a colon cleanse. I took my pill late that night because I forgot to take it with dinner. right after I went to bed and in aprox 10-15 minutes later I got the worst burn in my chest.

the burping does not give me relief. I feel worse as the day progresses. I feel better only when I have eaten very bland foods for a few days. I do have constipation but I am not sure if it is because I am not eating right. My general nature is to be happy and look on the bright side however i am extremely afraid of dying and to turn little medical problems into big ones in my head. I am very emotional and sometimes unhappy with my present situation in life. I love summer and hate winter. thanks for all your help

I note that you use a so called Colon Cleanse. You have noticed that it has harmed you as you have suffered from heartburn immediately after.

Please STOP using this poison as it will only do further damage to your system.

Nat Phos 6 will help to reduce your weight and will help your esophagus to come back to normal in a few days.
Joe De Livera last decade
Joe, thank you so much I know you are right about that stuff. I will buy the Nat Phos and try that. can you tell me a place to get it on line, I am having a hard time finding the right one.
bellz last decade
I believe that you can get it from the ABC store but someone said they only stock the 8x potency which is strange.

I would like you to look for it in the health food stores in the US if this is where you live.

Ask for the Nat Phos 6c boichemic type which is always in tablet form.

i have experience with a very effective homoeopathic mixture, wet dose of RECKEWEG R5 which when used for a long time, gives complete relief to such problems.

try it out and you will see its effectiveness. it contains the following dilutions in low potencies:

its available in shops under a RECKEWEG brand name.

i have seen people getting completely cured by using one or two files or this mixture.

Please advise me some help. I suffer from incessant coughing due to GERD. Though i dont exhibit any symptom at all of acidity still the coghing is very irritating. I am a typical phytolacca patient and respond very well to small doses of homeopathy, even one pill does the job. I am fond of winters and hate humidity and summers. Have ravenous apetite and suffer occasional bouts of constipation.In case u need any further info , please let me know.
nbatta last decade

also, provide all other physical ailments that you suffer from.

is there any cough.
is it a sour eructation.

how does the cough taste.

what time of the day is it worst,

what makes it worst and what makes it better.

is there any food your body cannot stand.

since how long this problem is with you.

how did it start, maybe abuse of alchohol or taking too oily and rich food.

can you relate anything, how did it start or the reason for it.
rishimba last decade
Its only throat clearing. No actual cough or mucous. No sour eructations. Throat clearing keeps happening throughout the day. This is there for last one and half year, when i came to live in Muscat from india. I dont take alchohol. Food habbits remain unchanged. I am not averse to any food nor does it affect my health any way. Do Not eat much oily food. But sweets yes. This started with throat infection and continued thereafter. There is no infection inside the throat as of now.
nbatta last decade
what makes you clean the throat every now and then.

do you have a lump sensation in your thoat pit


as if some dust is gone inside the throat


something is pricking like a small pin when you swallow.
rishimba last decade
There is a constant cough like irritation in the throat. There is no other symptom whatsoever. Just keep clearing the irritation is constant activity. I have got the throat examined by ENT doctor and he has found nothing wrong other attributing the coughing to GERD.
nbatta last decade

two times a day for a few days will take care of the problem.

best wishes.
rishimba last decade
Thank you very much. I will take this medicine next month when i am in india. Will keep u posted on the progress.

Hi, after reading this thread I can submit that my throat has been bugging me for the past 3 weeks or so. After the first day or two I thought maybe just another cold coming on. No cold as of yet.

I don't have an 'acid' sensation from my stomach. I do have a 'lump-like' feel in the pit of my throat when I swallow, at times a 'pin-prick'.

I stay up late each night working (2-2:30am). The sore throat comes on every night. (Am I just staying up too late?) :) As the night progresses, it gets worse. By the time I wake up in the morning it's either slightly lingering or completely gone, and ready for the next evening. I usually sip on some hot tea and it helps with the swallowing. It's not 'chronic' but it is definitely there.

Allergies? GERD?

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance,

(sore throat enthusiast)

You obviously do not suffer from any sore throat judging from the symptoms that you have listed. No GERD too.

You are advised to keep sipping some warm drink if you must stay up till the early hours of the morning which I hope is not on a daily basis. You must endeavour to get at least 6 hours of sleep every night and I would advise you to take Arnica 30c in the wet dose which is made by inserting 3 pellets of the remedy into a 500 ml bottle of spring water which you will shake hard (succuss) before you sip a teaspoonful every night.

Please report your response in a few days if you start the therapy.
Joe De Livera last decade
Arnica doesn't have the 'lump feeling' in the throat.

Homeopathy is selecting a similar remedy.

Kali carb will help you.It has got the lump feeling, and the amel. by drinking liquids.

try three doses of Kali-carb 30c, on any one day,with a gap of few hours and stop.

Make sure that there are no odors on you, near you, and in your mouth before taking the medicine.

Post response, after a week.

I have tried Nat phos 6x; calc carb 1m and phos 200 for gerd with success.Nat phos also reduced my weight which helps in containing gerd. Nux Vom 30 in the night also helped.
