Undetectable reflux?

i have chronic posterior laryngitis which all ENT's have said it's due to reflux, i had ph monitoring and a bilitec which came back negative but i spit yellow saliva every morning, wake up with a sore throat, foul taste, bad breath and have dysphonia since 8 months now, i know of one person who had this and the usual tests didnt detect her reflux either, she had to get a chemical analysis of her saliva that revealed digestive enzymes and a bunch of other stuff, has anyone heard of something similar, i want to analize my saliva to know whats damaging my throat but nobody does this in my country Chile

i have a 23 min supine bile reflux episode but the dr says i have no bile reflux so im confused, bilitec measures bile in the esophagus and my problem is in the throat maybe that had something to do idk, im very tired of all this dr's dont believe me but my laryngoscopies keep showing a swollen larynx and i keep spitting that nasty yellow stuff, please help

Re: Undetectable reflux?

Hi,

Sorry for your troubles - have you had an Endoscopy done or just the bilitec? Is bilitec the same? Does it show the same thing?

Re: Undetectable reflux?

i had both endoscopy and bilitec, the 1st one showed a bile pool in my stomach which matches with the yellow saliva in the morning, but the bilitec showed 10 episodes, the longest was 23 min while i was laying in bed i think (supine) but the bilitec only measures bile exposure on the esophagus not the throat, im thinkin they probably have different parameters to label what's pathological reflux in the throat and on the esophagus, for what i know it takes like 3 reflux episodes per week to affect the larynx, today im seeing another GI doctor i hope he actually listens to me... do you have reflux?

Re: Undetectable reflux?

Yes, I have reflux too.

I would definitely see your GI Dr and voice your concerns/confusion and don't leave until you get some answers.
