Cliffs Notes version of my story.

Five years ago I kissed a woman.

Woke up next morning with a sore throat.

Go to ENT. Tells me I have LPR.


I now think I might have some type of post nasal drip unrelated to reflux.

I went to a third ENT two weeks ago. He said my throat was red, but not that bad.

My pain and burning is at the roof of my mouth. Nowhere else.

Where is your burning and pain in your throat?

My burning is only in the nasopharyx. I wonder if pain and burning in the roof of the mouth can be related to burning mouth syndrome or some other nerve related issue?

What other symptoms do you have?

Hi faith.

I Googled nasopharyx.

From what I read, that is the upper part of the throat behind the nose,

That is where I burn.

I have difficulty swallowing, saliva and mucous in my throat.

No trigger foods.

The fact I had a cause and effect with the virus from the woman leads me to believe I have
PND.


Do you have LPR?

Yes, unfortunately I have LPR =(. I had all of the same symptoms as you, plus a chronic cough, throat clearing, and belching. I had a flare-up in July, and am starting to feel like I am really getting over it. I am scheduled for a manometry and 24 hour ph test this thursday. Are you taking any medication?

I have no cough.

No meds.

What makes it difficult is, PND can cause the exact same symptoms.

If you've had symptoms for five years, it's probably GERD. Viral infections are usually short lived rather than chronic. The symptoms appearing after a kiss is probably just a coincidence or else perhaps it was somehow stressful and caused your stomach to make extra acid, tipping a silent GERD over the edge into showing symptoms.

I seem to be in a similar situation as all of you with the burning sensation in the mouth/throat. I recently had Nissen Fundoplication 3 weeks ago. I still have my symptoms but it is different from pre op which gives me hope. 3 weeks is still early. I had stomach pains/discomfort which I associated with LPR and GERD and that has reduced a lot so that gives me hope too.

Maximus,

From what I read about the nissen, I'm pretty confident that you will continue to improve over the next few months. Also, I read that it is common to still experience reflux-related symptoms in the early stages of recovery, as your wrap needs time to heal.

If you don't mind, may I ask what your manometry and ph results concluded? I'm having mine done tomorrow and am really afraid.
Feel Good,

My Demeester score from the ph Test was 23 average between two days. Normal is around 14. I've read that most with LPR have closer to normal deemster scores compared to those with typical gerd symptoms such as regurgitation and volume/liquid reflux.

My manometry showed that I had good motility which determined I would get a 360 wrap. I believe my LES pressure was normal I believe which again is common with those with LPR.

Honestly, LPR is really too general of a term to me. There's those with asthma/cough symptoms and those with burning throat/mouth symptoms with LPR. Supposedly medicines rarely help but Nissen does. I have to trust in the surgery that over time it will get better.
