I have a question about my strange symptoms that have started happening lately. Whenever I drink water or liquids I have symptoms like burping, bloating, stomach growling, throat gurgling and a weird sensation in my throat like a lump or something is there.
Recently I have been diagnosed with esophagitis and I'm taking prilosec 40 mg, also herbs like ginger, licorice root, slippery elm it's gotten rid of heartburn acid reflux symptoms that I had before but now I have these. Do you have any idea what these is
