Re: Manuka honey for LPR? any success stories?
Hi Adam, how's the voice?
Your thread caught my eye as I'm in Sunderland, also do some teaching, and have had a relapse with my voice problems. I had problems back in 1999 (soreness after speech, tightening of throat) and suffered on and off till a consultant at Sunderland confidently suggested I take lansoprazole in 2005. This did the trick and, apart from one or two short relapses, I have been trouble-free since.
However, since last week things have gone downhill. I don't know the cause - the only thing I've done differently in recent months is not sleeping with a raised headboard, so I've put that right and we'll see what happens. I still take 30mg daily and a tempted to increase this but I'm unsure whether this is wise. I've also stopped drinking red wine less than 2 hours before bed (which is hard).
In 2009, following a relapse, I took Prozac (I was having a stressful time generally) and, whether or not coincidentally, my problem went away.
Anyway, it's 4 months since your post (I think), so how are things?
