Hi all, my doctor thinks I have acid reflux but i don't have the traditional heartburn like most people. I'm wondering if it is more like LPR because I tend to have more upper throat, mouth and chest issues. I get a sore throat, ulcers at the back of my tongue sometimes like something is bothering it, a hoarse voice on and off. Quite often bothered by it all within a few minutes of waking up. I get a tense neck feeling (although that may be due to the anxiety I'm getting because of this). I also get a bit of chest burning irritation that sometimes makes me want to cough a little. The only thing I can liken it to is when the chlorine is too strong in the swimming pool and it leaves you with a bit of a burning tickly irritation for a bit. For people without the traditional heartburn, what do your symptoms feel like? If I had a bit more information to back up my theory I was hoping to speak to the doctor about it in my follow up appointment in the next few weeks. Xx
