I assume chronic sinusitis was ruled out with exam and CT? Did the ENT suggest the reflux as a possible cause?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

yes all those test was done

did not see anything

yes he suggest acid reflux

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
Well, with all the appropriate tests, there isn't much left bu what I call "silent reflux" where there isn't the usual heartburn/indigestion but gastic acid, escpecially while asleep, well up into the nasal passages causing inflammation and drainage. I'd suggest you try the Nexium for two weeks--if the symptoms clear, we've got a diagnosis. Even in that case, I'd refer you to a gastroenterologist to determine the cause of the reflux and whether any damage has been done to the esophagus.
