and not have any symptoms at all? My son, age 2, has an esophageal stricture and they are trying to figure out what caused it. Reflux is something that can cause your esophagus to close up like this. He has never shown any symptoms of having reflux. At least that I have noticed. I am wondering if he could have been having stomach acid spalshing up into his esophagus for the past 2 years but maybe not high enough to feel any reflux symptoms. I am really stretching for answeres as this has been a LONG road. Any ideas are welcome! Thnks in advance. This is a great place for support!

Hi kris,
  It is my understanding that you can have reflux without actually feeling the "heartburn".  I have full gerds, and lpr.  When I first started noticing problems, and was diagnosed with gerds, I was having alot of heartburn.  Now, I dont have the heartburn as much, but I am struggling alot with lpr which for me atleast, has some different symptoms than heartburn.  But, it is the same in that it has acid that comes up and sits in my throat area.  In either case, its the acid producing the problems.  Also, being that your son is only 2 years old, is it possible that he never was fully able to communicate to you that he was having digestive problems?  Plus, if this is all hes known for so long, he may not have realized that it was not "normal".
  In any event, I wish you the best of luck!  Please keep us posted....
