I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Even though my throat appears to have healed somewhat, I don't think my mind can.
It's really interesting how with LPR everyone has such different symptoms, whereas GERD primarily refers to heartburn. I wonder why this is?
May I ask how long your throat has hurt? Is this your only symptom? If so, has it gotten any better? If not, what other symptoms did you have and did they go away?
I hope you feel better soon
