I am apparently suffering with Acid Reflux and although no discomfort in chest or abdomen now, have a very inflamed throat and my vocal chords are being affected so hoarse voice!
Have seen ENT consultant who suggested I was referred to have an endoscopy as he could see that they were being eroded by acid and throat quite red... also a previous xray had revealed a hiatus hernia. After having the endoscopy there appeared to be no hiatus hernia but they took some biopsies. They came back all ok so waiting for a appt now for a ph test!
In the meantime I am taking omeprazole night and morning, ranitidine before meals and peptic liquid after meals, as long with sticking to a rigid acid free eating plan!! Raised the head of my bed so more or less sleep sitting up!
Have been on this eating plan now for 2 months and lost about a stone and a half! But am desperate to find what others who may suffer with this how they are coping and what sort of foods they have been able to eat and where can I find comprehensive lists of acid free foods!! Thanks
