Hello...Sorry..this is a long ramble, My 13 year old had reflux as a baby and toddler but it seemed to just right itself. Now, for the past almost 2 years, he'd terrible sore throats when laying down and in the mornings, difficulty breathing and rhinitis symptoms..plus he's lost weight. For ages he was just given nasal sprays and told he had allergies. I recently discovered that if he props himself up at night, doesn't eat late and takes gaviscon at bedtime..he has zero rhinitis, no sore throat and generally feels better. I told GP that I suspected it could be something to do with digestion or reflux and he has referred him to a GE who's put him on PPI's. told to "see how it goes". I've read though that they are not the solution as night time reflux that gets into nasal cavities and upper throat is caused by pepsin? Anyone else know anything about this? Desperate for some answers. ps. The gaviscon seemed to relieve him better than PPI's!!!
