the other thread on GERD is proving helpful to me - i suffer and am in the throes of a flare up - i have a croupy cough and raw feeling wind pipe. Normally omeprazole and raitidine alleviate the symptoms but when ever i get a cold it flares up badly.

what can be done in the middle of a flare up like this? im stuggling to speak as the back of my throat is catching every time i speak or breathe.

any ideas?

I have to take 45mgs of Lansoprazole for my cough that is caused by GERD and seems to work!
