I went to my lung doctor with a cough I thought was asthma related or Lupus related today. She thinks I'm refluxing in my upper airway. She thinks it's LPR.
Two years ago I had the 270 degree fundoplication for my GERD related coughing. Now it looks like I'm refluxing again but higher up.
She wants me to have a barium swallow while eating barium soaked food. They'll xray my throat area only. I'm waiting for the nurse to call me tomorrow to set up the testing. $$$$$$
Anyone have the barium swallow done with food? Is it as nasty as the liquid barium test? Ugh! I hate the taste of barium.......
