Today I want to talk about two wierd symptoms of GERD and LPR. I get both sometimes and it feels realy strange. Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter.
The symptoms start when the amount of gastric acid that refluxes into the esophagus exceeds the normal limit. The first of the two not common symptoms of GERD is the:
Throat Cold Feeling when Breathing:
You can suddenly get a cold feeling in your throat with out any apparent reason and you will wonder why. With acid reflux, acids traveling from stomach and rise up into the esophagus to cause irritation to the vocal cord. As a result you get a symptom of vocal cord dysfunction. It may feel like you’ve breathed in after brushing your teeth. Many people sufferng from silent reflux and they don’t even now it.
Breathing Spasms (Hiccups):
This is what I mean:
This baby has severe acid reflux and lactose intolerance. Breathing spasms in my opinion is a mild Laryngospasm that can occur after a heavy meal, food allergy and so on…
Most of the time kids with GERD have this symptom, but also some adults. Unfortunatly there is not so much info out there about this symptom. When symptoms lke this occur try to fight back with some gerd natural remedies and lfe changes.
