Respected customer

Thank you for providing the details. I can understand your concern and worry.

In the meantime, you can give more info regarding this issue.

Please allow me just a few minutes.
I’ll reply to you back soon after reviewing it.

Thanks for your cooperation and patience.

Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 18 days ago.

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with explanations and suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, initially, I assure you definitely that your Echo report is normal.

No need to worry about anything serious.

Your symptoms are associated with GERD and nasal congestion.

You should do saline gargles and steam inhalation.
Also, do oral betadine rinse.
You should take OTC Claritin.
Also, do nasal saline spray and Nasonex spray.
Hydrate yourself with plenty of liquids.

In the meantime, you can take Nexium before meals and Zantac 150 mg twice a day( morning and at bedtime).

Follow the specific GERD diet.

Consider lifestyle modifications.

Lie down on the left side of the abdomen.

Eat a low-fat diet.

Limit your alcohol, carbonated beverages, alcohol intake.

You need to undergo a throat examination and investigations like Throat culture, Complete blood count for further evaluation.

Your doctor may prescribe you medications like H-2-receptor blockers, Antacids that neutralize stomach acid, Pro-motility drugs, Medications to reduce acid production, Foam barriers ( that are composed of an antacid, and a foaming agent). These are prescription medications.
The exact diagnosis can only be made after physical examination & tests.

So I advise you to make an appointment with your doctor for these tests & examination to know the exact cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.
