Is this normal with LPR?
HI, as you may have read in my pervious posts, I am doing a bit of "self-diagnosis" before my doctors appointment in November. I am almost positive I have LPR (all my symptoms are consistan and the tiimeline of events seems to match up) but I do have two questions:
1) I never wake up from my sleep having to cough (I also don't cough while sleeping). When I wake up, I am fine, but the minute I move I get the tickle like I have to cough. My theory is that all the "stuff" that's refluxing is just kind of settling in while I sleep, and moving makes it move as well and begin to irritate my vocal chords. Does this sound like something that would be with LPR?
2) I also get this wierd thing sometimes where by breath sort of catches...well thats the best way I can describe it. It just feels like my vocal chorsd close up for a second and no air can get through, but it literally happens for just a fraction of a second. Is this also someting consistant with LPR?
Thanks for any information!
