I have had severe reflux for over 20 years. It has damaged my throat and now I have also developed asthma because of it. I have tried everything to control it naturally (change diet, smaller portions, blah, blah, blah). I only weigh 115 lbs. so weight is not the issue. Here is my question - has anyone taken PPI's and NOT damaged their tinnitus? It seems like the only alternative left for me but I'm terrified after all that I've read about them. I'm in a good place with my tinnitus now but it took me years to get here. I don't ever want to go through what I went through at the beginning again. I don't even want to think about life and how it would be if this got worse. Any advice or anyone who's had success with reflux meds?
