I just wanted to introduce myself on this forum, since yesterday I was diagnosed with LPR.
For nearly 3 years, I'd been having seemingly random bouts of shortness of breath and a sense of throat tightening. Nothing ever showed up, even after *many* frantic ER visits and tests for everything form the thyroid to my heart. I even had two EGDs come back normal. However, yesterday, my second-opinion ENT finally did a throat scope - why I hadn't had one earlier is beyond me - and saw inflammation of the larynx. That combined with further description of my symptoms clinched her diagnosis of LPR. Now I'm taking Nexium once a day and Zantac before bed. Let's hope it helps.
