LPR: How many people only have throat symptoms?

I know LPR is supposed to be silent reflux.

I wonder how many people really only have throat symptoms.

There are still some belief that LPR does not an accurate diagnosis for throat issues.

There are threads on this board that indicate this.

Hi kevinla, i just read a blog on blog page titled LPR something. You'll see it.Only one about lpr. Anyway, exciting new research & papers by drs who think it is laryngopharyngeal sensory neuropathy. Caused by a cold virus that damages nerves in larynx. Study shows 78% improvement in patients taking lyrica or neurontin. Read it. If you dont find it tell me here. I will find it and tell you Exactly where to find it.
. But, she has studied them all, you need to see that blog. Let me know. Thank you, gmak

Found it.Seekingsunrise on acid reflux/gerd message board, on 11/25/2010, title"LPR as something else, falsely treated as acid reflux". Maybe the thread you were referring to, maybe not. Hope this helps! Thanks, gmak

Hi, s.girl,
I dont want to call you sad, sorry. In case, you want to know for filling out papers @dr office (because it doesnt matter here) etc. The correct spelling is eosinophilic esophagitis. Read about angioedema. Thank you.
