Yes....although it took several doctors to find one who thought my symptoms were indicative of LPR.
My voice was often better in the AM as well....it was the burning mouth and throat that were almost intolerable. The acid from your stomach can reek havoc with your soft tissues.
I try and meditate every day now, am very careful what I eat and I drink lots of water.
Your question about what I ate....the doctor suggested I start with one, mild food that I could tolerate and not introduce too many others until my throat and mouth began to heal. I found the turkey was a safe food for me and once I started feeling better i was very reluctant to add any new ones. My husband made me try.
Eventually I found I could tolerate a lot of different foods and I feel so thankful the pain is finally gone.
Someone on this site said the doctors are reluctant to diagnosis LPR....although I don't know why this is true...I believe it. However, once LPR became my diagnosis....I tried everything suggested to me until I finally had relief. Hang in there.
