Evening to all and thank you to the people that replied to my last post about me being hoarse with my reflux.  Was told by my doc to drink lots of water.....done that, it helps a little, but not a lot.  I am going back to work in a couple of weeks (I am a 1st grade associate) and believe me, having 1st graders requires a full voice.  What am I going to do?  I feel really alone in this problem, like there is no cure for this.  Ive had reflux for about 2 years, but recently was started on Lipitor for cholesterol, do any of you think this could be the culprit in my hoarseness?  Of course I know I have a lot of stress with hubby having cancer, but I need my voice back. :(  I even worry about cancer in my throat a lot with my husband being sick.  I think about it a lot.  Any suggestions?

I just lose my voice sometimes. I don't know what it is. You might try a good lozenge (cough drop) and keep your mouth lubricated. There are ones made with sweet and low if you have any diabetic problems. I buy a regular one with extra C in it and use it only when necessary.

Don't worry about your voice. A deep and hoarse voice can be scarey for kids...make them mind you.

p.s. Cancer of the throat is very rare.

:-)  hi bnol, sounds pretty aggravating. i had a problem talking period, i would hurt so bad to talk that i just stayed off the phones, then i started prilosec and it stopped the problem.  i am not a big fan of prilosec as i am losing my hair, but maybe you could try nexium, i hear that is safe.  it is not the same as prlosec but (not a ppi) i think it works for many. so sorry  what a bummer.
