I have had a bad flare up the past 3 weeks. This past weekend led to me going to the emergency room where I was given a GI cocktail that numbed my esoghogus. The first day it started I had severe burning in my chest and was given the same GI Cocktail. the next day I had cold symptoms then Bronchitis. this lasted for two weeks. This past weekend I had more buring in the chest and throat and vomited acid. I went to the emergency room and took the other GI cocktail, which relieved it for about an hour. today I woke up with the same burning but now have swollen glands like I would with a cold. Is this all related?
Alot of us with GERD can trace it to post nasal drip.......sometimes we r unaware of this issue and just know we have the GERD.......but, it can rear it's head from time to time and appear to be a cold....
Try using a saline nasal spray to see if that helps. ALso ask ur dr if this is a possibility for u.
Yes. For me, GERD symptoms are typically, sore throat, runny nose, and in more severe attacks, swollen glands (the ones under your ears), feeling of a lump in my throat, and coughing. If it's really bad, I will also get bronchitis. So, yes, the swollen glands *could* be from GERD. I often find it hard to distinguish the onset of a cold from a bad GERD flare-up.
