You are sure it is gerd? This almost sounds like a respiratory problem, coughing up that much mucus. Has she been checked for Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma,TB?

Also, she could have some other GI disorder other than gerd causing her symptoms.

  Hi, I would have to ask the same questions as whisperwolf....are u sure it is not something other then GERD/reflux....the amount of mucus seems a bit much.....

  She may have some GERD symptoms as a result of all that mucus draining into her stomach....PND and things like that can trigger flares.....

  May I ask y she was dropped from the ins?...can u get it reinstated?......
