Hello all!
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.

Well percycat...I'd like to welcome you to the forum, though I am sorry you have to be here.

Keep us updated on your condition, and please do tell us how the Nexium and Zantac works for you.

Wishing you the best...and do stay with us!
