Cold feeling on my throat

Hello everyone,

I’ve been experiencing a peculiar sensation lately and I’m unsure if it’s related to acid reflux. I constantly feel a very cold, almost ‘minty’ sensation in my mouth. It’s reminiscent of the feeling you get when you breathe in after brushing your teeth or sucking on a strong mint. My throat and the roof of my mouth feel cold—not irritated, just chilly and tingly.

In the past, I’ve dealt with reflux issues and have taken proton pump inhibitors. Currently, I’m not on any prescription medication. About ten years ago, I had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with acute gastritis. I frequently experience heartburn and indigestion.

I’ve mentioned this to my GP, but they seem puzzled and have never heard of such a symptom.

Nevertheless, I’m certain this sensation is real, and I’m curious if anyone else with reflux has experienced something similar.

That cold, minty sensation sounds unusual, but it’s great that you’re reaching out for insights. While I haven’t experienced exactly the same thing, I’ve had my share of reflux issues too. It might be worth exploring further with a specialist or maybe even seeking a second opinion if your GP hasn’t been much help. Hang in there!

It’s great that you’ve consulted your GP about your symptoms, but if you’re still experiencing this sensation, consider seeking a second opinion from a specialist like a gastroenterologist. They may have more insights into your specific condition and offer targeted treatment options. Take care!
