    Gerd & eyes
    keeks444 posted:
    I'm having a problem with acid reflux. I have a chronic cough, sore throat and now my eye lashes are sticking together in the morning so I have to assume it is some kind of eye infection. I have an appointment for an upper intestinal test next month but I'm wondering if anyone else has the problem with the eyes. I'm diabetic and also have scleraderma.

    I wasn't able to find information on WebMD for eye problems and acid reflux or scleroderma, but I was able to find information on diabetes and eye problems.

    WebMD moderators are unable to give medical advice or a diagnosis, but hopefully you will find these resources helpful.

    You should definitely consult your doctor about your symptoms. The sooner you get these symptoms addressed, the sooner you can hopefully get some relief.
