Snow: I have no idea, but mine also came after the PPI's as well but I went to ENT and he confirmed I had LPR which make sense because I think I had LPR since july but I didn't know it since it's no acid reflux, I remember having sour taste mouth sores and recurring sinus infections, everyone has different symptoms when it comes to this particular disease, people can choke and cough and have asthma like symptoms. then some can have voice problems and sinus ear pains etc. The Lump in throat is swelling of the voice box or something but if yours is gone then you must have healed it but what type of symptoms are you having? you might want to read DR. koufman book dropping the acid I am following her diet starting today to see any improvement with lump and phlegm thing I am staying on high alkaline diet but this illness is a lot harder to beat with or without PPI get you some High alkaline water like essienta or evamore supposibly its suppose to kill the pepsin goes into our nose and airways and voice box causing damage. but the biggest hurdle is the bile how do we get rid of that. Pepsin lingers around after the digestion of proteins and all it needs anything below ph of 6.5 to activate it and the lower the you go the higher the activity of it is
bile is the biggest problem because there is no solution for this and it's not like you can stop it because any kind of fat in your diet it can be 2%DV meal bile is released to break it down causing it sometimes to reflux in our stomach up to our esophagus and when it lingers around causes LPR issues.
DOGG: how long have you had the disease?, its funny i think I had LPR before any of this started like i said above I had recurring infections of the sinuses and always wondered why i was congested and etc. but yeah the lump in the throat can be many things it can be caused by the stuff that lingers around but I have read some interesting stuff on the internet like your vegus nerve can be either irritated or damaged in some way so it causes it to malfunction so thats why we can have LPR, and LPR and anxiety really go hand and hand with me it might be the case but I will not know until some more testing to rule out how much I reflux and if my esophagus is working right and contractions etc. if everything comes back normal it could be nerve thing and I might want to look into some kind of medicine to let it heal, I heard a lot people had great relief with that. there are a lot of possibilities on why we have LPR we just have to explore those options have you ever had the 48hr testing done? I want to get the pill testing done and see if my stomach is not digesting things right because maybe that's why we have frequent refluxes. Sorry to rant but yeah I can agree with you pills or no pills you can not stop it the sad thing is you can stop the pepsin but the bile is what we can't get rid of and people had there gall bladder removed and it still comes. but what's the fast track diet? and I really hope you do get better, the acid rebound will go away trust me. and have you tried gaviscon advance for pepsin it said if you have low acid you might not get any results and you should try some akaline water to maybe kill of the pepsin it might be myth but anything above 8.8ph does the job, LPR is so hard to cope with I just want to fight it as much as possible before the surgery route. I just wonder how long the throat takes to heal I want my lump gone its worse in morning its like food is there or something.
I also know for me it could be nerve thing most of the time people who sing or use their voice excessively have overworked there vocal cords I remember i used to scream a lot when I was younger so I wonder for me if it could be a nerve thing, like nerves are just not working right and signaling the wrong kind of singles during the digestive process.
this is kind of interesting, telling us causes of LPR proves kind of my theory about
nerves and other possibilities such as irritation from a endoscopy because I got mine after the endscopies.
