Hi everyone. I am currently dealing with what I believe is LPR. It has been diagnosed as such by an ENT, on transnasal endoscopy, who has seen throat/vocal chord inflammation both times. I also have symptoms such as sore throat, tight throat, bitter taste in throat/mouth, and burning tongue. My main symptom of throat tightness has been helped about 90% by using PPIs, however I continue to have this annoying bitter taste and frequently a sore throat and tongue issues.
I had a 24 hr PH/impedance monitoring test done in January, and had a "normal" demeester score, and sour/bitter taste was associated with weakly acidic reflux. In the summary of the results of the test, there was no mention of proximal (near throat) acid exposure, only distal exposure which is near the lower esophageal sphincter.
So I am curious, if anyone here has had their LPR confirmed via 24 hour PH monitoring. Or maybe who has LPR that had a seemingly "normal" 24 hour study? If you did have 24 hour monitoring, do you know if they used a separate sensor positioned in the larynx area?
