I have been diagnosed with LPRD and GERDS. Everything I eat gurgles in my throat or gives me the lump in throat sensation like an hour or two after I eat. I am on dexilant 60mg once daily and feel I am getting no relief. When i bend over my stomach gurgles up into my throat. Most of my symptoms happen when I am sitting up and there is no heartburn ever. I am always clearing my throat and don't know what to do, it seems the medicine is not working. I had an endoscopy done about 5 months ago with no major problems except i did have a schatzki ring that stretched. I eat a bland diet ( someways I only eat crackers and water and I still have this problem, I also have a small hiatil hernia that I was told was not a "big deal". Any help would be appreciated.
