At my GI doctor's recommendation, I finally went to an ENT doctor to scope my larynx. I could tell he was a bit taken aback because I walked into the office and simply announced that I had LPR and needed to have it documented. Sure enough, though, he came to the same conclusion--duh! My question is this: I'm already on nexium twice a day and 300 mg of zantac before bed, and I still have LPR symptoms (nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, throat clearing, etc...). Is there anything else that can be done, aside from surgery?
