I have acid reflux so bad it is coming up into my sinuses

I have acid reflux so bad it is coming up into my sinuses. I was only taking one Nexium (40mg) and then the Gastro added Raniditine (300) mg at night. I have started cutting them in half and it is getting better, but my sinuses and throat hurt all the time. My stomach is upset, and I have explosive gas. I’ve elevated my head at night. How can I get this to settle down?

I know this is rather late in the game, but if you had that much discomfort from a sinus infection, and have had more than one, I hope you’re seeing a specialist. Mine generally tie in with the allergy stuff I suffer from as well. If one round of antibiotics doesn’t fix it, be sure to followup and let your doc know! I’ve known of cases where the infection got so bad they were hospitalized due to proximity to the brain! Fortunately, even though I get one every couple of years, I’ve learned my symptoms, so one round of meds is generally enough. Good luck in the future!
