Ask A Doctor - I have been diagnosed with GERD several years ago... - DesiMD Healthcare Services

   

I have been diagnosed with GERD several years ago. I had a scope and it showed I had an ulcer. I was prescribed Tecta and it seemed to help some. For the past year I have noticed that I keep losing my voice and get very hoarse. I feel like something is in my throat. I have also had some severe bouts of heartburn but not often. I tend to get indigestion often and sometimes feel nauseous in the middle of a meal. I am a 53 year old female. - Asked by S K on 10-Dec-2015 01:07:59
