The first time I had LPR it presented itself with PND, chronic cough, sore throat, 2 or 3 episodes of reflux. It last 3 mo.
I recently within the last few months have it back. This time I have the lump in the throat feeling, tightening in my throat, pressure that is relieved by burping. I bend over and can feel the fluid rising in my throat and a big burp ensues.
I had hoarseness that only lasted a day and a slight sore throat about a day. I had it under control after 2 mo. and now
it is starting again. Not as bad as before but it is back and annoying. Now I am mostly getting that feeling in my chest that I have to burp, my ears close up and not actual chest pain but an awareness across my upper chest that lasts a min or so. This is causing so much anxiety for me. I am taking wellbutrin, ativan, prilosec and zantac. When it is at its worse for me I have nasal congestion, blocked ears, that discomfort in my chest, burping and that tightening in my throat.
It is not as bad as it was a few months ago but don't understand why it has come back. It was years since my first attack. I was anxious prior to getting it again. I know it is a cycle...LPR/Anxiety go hand in hand.
Does anyone else out there experience this sensation in the chest and throat with the nasal pressure and ears closing up.
