Thanks JPT, I appreciate your response. I have posted a question about Evamor water on the main forum, but I see here that there have been other posts about the water. It would be good to know whether it can be purchased in the UK.
I guess I am one of the more 'challenging' patients as all my symptoms point to LPR, but every test is negative except the scope on my throat which shows moderate inflammation. Prof. Dettmar's comments are interesting as the ENT consultant I saw just shrugged his shoulders and had no idea what else could be causing the inflammation. I have had food & allergy testing done, but nothing there. I have never smoked and as for alcohol, well... if only! I have drunk a lot of fruit teas in my time though, I wonder if that could have damaged the lining as he says, but I dont think they were particularly acidic.
I am going to try another ENT I think as he suggests and see what the second opinion yields.
Thanks again, your advice and assistance is much appreciated.
