Thank you Kitt, my story reads like a horror movie. My larynx and voicebox are swollen. I woke up that way on day 6 of having a Bravo probe implanted in my esophagus against my wishes. Its a long story, but like many here i have had multiple doctor visits and had multiple diagnosis and treatments. Most of which have made me worse. I am currently trying to fix it with diet and elevating my bed and supplements. The acid blocker they had me on for 3 months destroyed my health and made the throat worse. Also gave me a massive candida infection. The worst part of this story is, the ER doctor put me on ativan, which is now a major problem.
I went into our local hosptial with one problem and came out with four. They were going to remove a gallbladder based on symptoms alone so i am the one who requested the endoscopy, but i did not want the probe. My ENT that is working with me now is puzzled by my symptoms. They do fit LPR, but they are also similar to irritable larynx. I have done so much research i think i know more than some of the doctors do. If the lump would go away, i could handle the rest. My voice is hoarse and painful and somtimes goes out completely. Going on 5 months. Thank you for this forum. I check it everynight. Glad to be here.
