    Pain under tongue caused by Acid Reflux?

    Hi, About 3 weeks ago I started having a pain under my tongue and a sore/dry throat. I waited a week or more and it got a little worse or the same, but not better so I went to the doctor. The doc had no clue and refered me to an ENT. The ENT cannot see me until later in the month (30days after my original appt). The pain went away about 4 days later. Last night I woke up with acid reflux and then this morning I noticed the pain under my tongue and a sore throat again. Could the pain be caused by the acid getting that far into my mouth and if so?? I am guessing an ENT is not going to be able to help.

    The pain under the tongue I've never heard of, but the sore throat is very common. If these symptoms correspond to times when you know you've had acid reflux, then it seems reasonable that they are indeed part of it.

    Also, since this is in the area of ear, nose, and throat, I think that the ENT is your best bet. Are you having any heartburn? If not, then what you are experiencing is probably what's called silent reflux or LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Disease ). The typical symptoms are:
    •sensation of drainage down the back of the throat or excessive mucus
    •feeling of something caught in the throat (sometimes a tickling or burning sensation)
    •throat clearing
    •chronic cough
    •post-nasal drip
    •sore throat
    •difficulty swallowing
    •prolonged vocal warm-up (for singers)
    •loss of the high end of the vocal range

    Good luck with your appt!
