Re: silent reflux
Like many of you, I never heard of LPR or no anyone else personally that has the problems I do. I don't have heartburn and never did. All of my symptoms are more of the upper resp type such as getting very SOB, cough, PND, voice changes and so forth. In the beginning, I had the feeling of something in my throat and not being able to swallow. It's an awful feeling. Tell your Dr. about this and he may prescribe some type of motility drug that will help. I had to take Reglan for this even though I didn't like it and it's known to have bad side effects. There should be something that will help you though. I lost 50 lbs when so sick but gained it all back no needless to say, I have no trouble eating now. I'm sure I would be better if I lost wt but since I was so sick being so skinny it's hard to relate feeling good with wt lose. I eat what I want since I can't tell much difference in it anyway but know there are things that make it worse at times. Bending and lifting will cause breathing problems for me. LPR is much harder to control than regular GERD, which I have the pleasure of having both. I promise that you will get better though and you are not crazy. Best of Luck.
