Is GERD/LPR/Reflux candida and/or parasite related? PM Date: 4/5/2011 10:22:08 AM ( 3y ago ) Hits:1879Size: 1616 char.
I feel like I am going to go crazy. My throat clearing, coughing, asthma and now sinuses are out of control. My eyelids are often swollen now in the mornings. I have candida and parasites, but I also have lyme and epstein barr. I have had these for going on 15 years and never had these new issues before. Then about 2 years ago, BAM, out of nowhere I develop the throat clearing issue first. Then about a year ago, the wheezing and asthma attacks started. I had a chest xray and a lung CAT scan and they both came back fine. I had a probe stuck down my throat and the ENT looked at my vocal chords. Despite the fact I rarely get heartburn, he said I had a mild to moderate case of LPR (which is a form of GERD). Of course their remedy is to shove a PPI down your throat and that will never happen with me. Could candida be the culprit from this? I have it even when I eat the strict candida diet. I need to do something as I seem to be getting worse. It is affecting my sleep, I wake up in fits of coughing, my ribs and back are hurting from all the coughing and I feel like I've gunk in the back of my throat all the time.
Recently I've been waking up with tons of mucus that comes up and the wheezing is awful. I'm also having sneezing fits. Parasite treatmens have made no difference with all the above symmptoms. I am sensitive in the hiatial hernia area and practitioners always try and do this movement that's supposed to put it back into place, but that never works and only succeeds in hurting. Any suggestions? I don't want to live the rest of my life like this. It's awful! Thanks.
