Hello,

How long and how frequently are you having the symptoms?

When have you consulted doctor last?

Which specialist did you consult till now?

What medicines are you taking?

Did you have any test?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

i was diagnosed with acid reflux about 2 years ago. i had these same symptoms except for nausea. he gave me omeprazole dr. which seemed to help. symptoms returned in October. I went back to new doctor and he said I definitely had a return of acid reflux so I got prescription refilled. it took away most symptoms except had a bad taste in my mouth and need to clear my throat (flem). Bloating and nausea started about a month ago off and on. Still burping a lot. Im supposed to get endoscopy in a few weeks. I do have a history of ulcers. I have a very nervous personality.
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 3 years ago.

Thank you for the information,

Your symptoms sound like reflux or acid peptic disease.

The return of bloating and nausea can be due to exacerbation of the reflux.

There can be other causes too like an H pylori infection.

An endoscopy is necessary when the symptoms have aggravated.

Though there can be other causes of bad taste like a sinus, mouth or nose problem but with other symptoms reflux is likely cause.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Regards.

also forgot to mention throat is a little sore still especially when I do A hard clearing of my throat. Im so nervious I cant sleep. thanks
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 3 years ago.
Hard clearing can cause irritation of throat & cause soreness.

Still if you feel the soreness more, you should get a check up of your throat to exclude any other cause.

Your doctor can also take some tests like throat swab.

An ENT specialist can have a look into your throat to exclude any local throat issue.

Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 3 years ago.
It can be that there is gastritis or inflammation of stomach wall.

This can be caused by an infection or acid or from pain killer like NSAIDs if you have taken any.

After food it can be more irritated.

Try to take bland diet, avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine etc if you do any.

Many drugs may cause nausea.

If your symptoms have started after taking omeprazole, you need to talk with your doctor.

He can change it to other drug.
