Thanks for your prompt response, however would it be possible to have my s/s reviewed by a gastro-enterologist. This does not have to be completed today. Thank you
1/9: more info.
~I have had no consistent/chronic s/s reflux w/ burning sensation (maybe 2 episodes/12 mo)
~ >1 yr occas had vague feeling in chest. thot it was related to MVP or palps but HR wnl and EKG during yrly physical wnl. Since taking prilosec this is gone.
~w/i past yr upon am wakening have had slightly sore throat w/o any other cold s/s.
~occas during sleep have been awakened with dry cough; no other resp s/s dev.
~last week I was awakened with sensation of reflux(fluid in throat), but there was no burning sensation in my throat
I think my s/s probably do indicate ERD. Should I verify this was a diag test?
The reason I asked about changing my htn med is that I have read/heard about 2 instances where this type of med caused similar oral sensations. Also I had s/w 4 pharmacists and they assured me that prilocsec was a comparable med to nexium which would cost me $220 per month.
I have had this sensation that something/a hair was on my tongue for about 8 months.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
