Weird Signs You Have Acid Reflux

Weird Signs You Have Acid Reflux
LOTS OF SALIVA
Experts believe the reason your mouth is filled with saliva just before you vomit, is the same reason why reflux causes saliva. Your salivary glands start to work double time in anticipation of gastric juices coming up. This way your body is prepared to wash out whatever comes up.
A mouthful of saliva is a good indicator of an underlying acid reflux problem.
REPEATED ATTACKS OF PNEUMONIA
Pneumonia without a good reason can be attributed to acid reflux, especially if there are multiple bouts in a short span of time.
Reflux causes gastric acid fumes to irritate your throat and lungs resulting in sore throats and pneumonia.
ASTHMA
Asthma like symptoms are common in patients that experience reflux. Sometimes it’s even the prime cause of asthma, promptly going away once the acid reflux is cured. Reflux causes acid fumes to irritate your airway and cause a reaction which leads to gasping and shortness of breath. These symptoms may become exacerbated at night because lying down increases the amount of acid being washed up.
