Dry throat -- Possibly esophagus
elycelynne posted:
I've been taking Nexium with good results for quite a few years. In the past year I've been afflicted with a dry throat that seems to extend farther down, possibly as far as the esophagus. Sometimes it's so irritating that it makes me cough.

The only thing I've done differently in the past year is that I've started taking a daily probiotic (Digestive Advantage -- formerly known as Sustenex). Would the increased bacteria cause a change or increase in digestive acids and possibly bring up something that would irritate my esophagus? I sometimes also feel it on my tongue.
