Some may remember that i posted a while ago about having a bad taste in my mouth and smell in my nostrils and i had been wondering if it could be caused by all the medication i am on. Well i went to my excellent G.P. who gave me a nasal spray and some nystatin as i had oral thrush. He said all the symptoms could be caused by gastric reflux so he also gave me 20mg daily of omeprazole. I pwas only mildly aware of gastric reflux happening but now, inspite of the omeprazole, i am aware that is happening every 4/5 days and is really bad. I have an appointment to review in another few days.
I realise from your posts that quite a few of you suffer from gastric reflux and am wondering if our meds could cause this. I would welcome any advice about how to deal with this. This is the first christmas that i have LOST weight as i am scared to bring on the syptoms. Many thanks in anticipation x
