Sorry, I forgot to mention that I have been on tablet Lanzoprazole for ten days. Although it has reduced burping still, there is no difference in sore throat and bad taste in the mouth. However, I was told that this might take four weeks. Do you feel it is only GERD and not throat cancer?
I have family stressors like looking after my elderly parents, and my father can be very demanding, and sometimes I feel unable to cope.
Can the medications that you suggested be bought over the counter?
