LPR = laryngopharyngeal reflux
Ariadne (who is not a happy camper right now)
There is a lot of reflux and GERD on both sides of our family, but I had never heard of this one. I bet my dh's aunt has, b/c she used to work for a gastroenterologist and she has been scoped, herself, and strongly recommends that dh and I get scoped. She says the treatment that prevents cancer is easy, but I'm not sure if it's the same one described on webmd. (Fundoplication)
DH tends to get GERD when he's very busy and doesn't eat properly, and since he can control that and make the symptoms go away, he doesn't take it very seriously. When I get GERD, it's extremely painful and lasts for months, and I tend to lose a lot of weight, b/c everything I eat hurts. I haven't had it since 1998 so I'm about 20 lbs heavier than before my last episode!
What does your dr say?
