Hi Richard,

It's not actually the Barrett's but the acid reflux that caused the Barrett's that may be attacking your nasal cavities etc.

There were some research data released recently regarding the use of PPIs as a way of treating otitis media in children.

When you are eating normal muscle action in the oesophagus would make reflux impossible.

Reflux of solids happens after eating particularly, when the stomach is full. Liquid reflux occurs when the stomach is empty - so almost any time!

Hi Guys!
 
I like to read your posts when the going gets just a little tough at this end.  On the subject of the runny nose, its only since I started seriously developing GORD that I noticed just how badly my nose starts to drip (worse in cold weather).  It is really embarrassing, especially when your looking real pretty ready to go out with full make-up etc.  Of course, being guys you wouldn't have that problem...
 
In addition, my Dad died of a condition called Pulmonary Fibrosis.  His nose continually dripped just like mine, he always suffered from acid indigestion terribly and it is from his side of the family that I reckon the gallstones also come from.  I am extremely concerned to say the least that the eternally dripping conk is going to go on to cause Pulmonary Fibrosis in my lungs. 
 
I am totally convinced there is a connection between the GORD and lung disease, it stands to reason.
 
Any thoughts?
 
CheersWink

Hi G,

When my worst symptom was the cough, in the days when my GP was sending me to ENT and before I understood the reflux cause, I found this American website and asked some pertinent question. receiving the answer a few weeks later that GORD certainly can damage your lungs but once the acid reflux has been stopped, your lungs can start to recover.
I don't know whether he is still actively answering lung questions as it appears his last post is 2009 but searching his previous answers may help?

WinkThanks Chris,
 
It's only by comparing notes with other sufferers that you realise what is going on with your condition.  There is nothing worse than having to face the World on your own, or when no-one understands what is going on with you.  Its ghastly. 
 
Even my two daughters just look at me when I explain that I sometimes consciously have to make my oesophagus swallow.  I think this is hard work and its this internal maniplation that is quietly tiring me out.  I fall asleep on the sofa more easily than I ever used to.
 
This is a tough condition to have to live with although I find mixing with people (when my nose isn't running, oh joy!)  Helps tremendously.
 
Not many people are able to empathise except for actual sufferers.
 
Cheers,
