    Hi Winterj.

    Dr. Kujawski told me that, in case of GERD, your stomach and esophagus may not suffer from it, since the acid coming is not that strong and does not stay there long enough to damage tissues. Anyway, since your LP tissues are more delicate, they may get damaged.

    So you may have GERD without damages in your esophagus but with your tubes "burnt"!!! That's my case. And I could see the burnts during endoscopy, also in my throat.

    Bye

    Remmy.

    they have to see or hear the noise or believe your symptoms in both. the e tubes and be scoped through the nose, that is not always conclusive either.
    there are no real tests for either unfortunately. i found that making the clearest list of symptoms is helpful. it is important to really be specific in these symptoms. in talking to you, your clues came about in several different posts, a lot of key info in each. now put it all together. also you are best seved by a neurotoligist, not an ent as they know nothing. however a few out there one day will as my dr is a teacher and he showed me to his students, so i hope the retained that for others sake.

    I saw Dr. Sismanis today - he scoped my nose and I almost passed out - got dizzy and broke into a cold sweat! Good news is he thinks I have PET and yet again, was awesome to hear a doc talk about it.
