Default TOS and GERD

Ive just been recently diagnosed with TOS and have also been battling GERD for the past two years. Im just wondering if anyone knows if the two are related at all, or if anyone also suffers both TOS and GERD and can recommend treatments.

I doubt the two are related. You likely need to be treated for each separately.

Watch what your diet and try nexium if the ins. co will pay. Mine had me test others and I'm not so sure they work as well. Good luck with it. I've had it for years, almost 40.

You might ask to be checked for H pyloi. My dd had that dx/tx last Feb.

Sometimes long term antacid &/or NSAID use can set you up for chronic slow digestion issues.
I have occasional heartburn/gerd/sensitive tummy issues from long time NSAIDS when I was still trying to keep working.

I now use some papaya enzyme chewables that work nicely.

I have the same problem and have been doing some research. It seems that some of the nerves that control the sphincter between the esophagus and stomach (LES) could be compressed through TOS and cause the LES not to function properly. It doesn't seem like much research specifically correlating the 2 has been done but it's possible.

I have been suffering with GERD for over a year. I've changed my diet, I've taken high doses of prilosec and zantac, I'm not overweight... Nothing helps - so maybe it is my nerves. Anyway, thought I'd post this in case anyone else is dealing with it.

I have been suffering from GERD issues for years. TOS is much much better but the GERD issues continue. I was on dexilant for 3 years but have been switched to Pantoprazole. I cannot do without some GERD prescription medication every single day. Right now GERD is the main issue I am battling with.
Sec161 you could be right, there could be a connection...I have always had that doubt in my head....

Jomar what brand and strength of papaya enzymes? That should help with the digestion but not the valve betn the stomach and esophagus right? Wish there was a way to fix that valve!

You could try some apple cider vinegar with the "mother" put a little bit in some water and drink it.

I got carried away way exploring other apple cider vinegar benefits...sipping some right now mixed with honey & water...

For the papaya enzymes I have American Health Brand, but I didn't search out what brand might be best I just saw it at the store and got it ..

Some various products on iherb to compare

[Digestion, Stomach
Gas, bloating, belching, loss of appetite, nausea and discomfort may indicate a more serious condition, or dyspepsia, which is a generalized term for poor digestion. Chronic dyspepsia should be investigated for the root cause, which could be esophageal reflux, gallstones, an ulcer or another condition. Enzymes, probiotics, as well as artichoke leaf and turmeric may support digestive health. ]
http://www.iherb.com/Digestion-Stomach

*not promoting iherb - I use it for info & price comparison shopping.*
