Hi, im new to this site and im having a problem with my stomach.
Out of nowhere a week ago I regurgitated some diet cola and choked on it for a minute, from that moment Ive been a bit acidic around the stomach and I had another incident a few days after.
I self diagnoised acid reflux and the doctor agreed and put me on omeprazole for a month.
Before the tablets I would burp non stop and now after 5 days of tablets im burping after I eat and sometimes randomly like before.
Why am I burping, what causes it and will it go away?
I have trouble swallowing sometimes and my uvulva is a bit swollen and sticks to my tongue, are the troat problems due to the truma of choking or the acid, I read it's a symptom?
Whats causing the swallowing problems, it's hard to eat certain things and sometimes after eating it starts to get worse, i need to take a breathe sometimes and it feels weird when swollowing.
Since being on the tablets and changing my diet no acid has come up, how long will the troat take to get better?
Will the lower stomach spincter ever repair itself and how has it malfunctioned out of nowhere (i guess my diet is the answer espeically drinking carbonated drinks daily, but im curious to the technicals).
Can it repair and if so how long does it take, does the acid and bad food cause the persistants of the problem and if removing them will it repair?
Sorry for the extensive prose.
