Hi all. I’ve been around here a while. I’m 32, was diagnosed with a 4cm sliding hiatus hernia around a year ago, before which I had horrific acid day and night 7 days a week, even bending over at work it would rush up and felt like my throat was on fire. Anyway, since the diagnosis I have been taking daily Lansoprazole. I’ve not had acid since, well not that I can feel, but I wonder if LPR could be present as I understand PPI’s do not stop pepsin. So to the point (finally, sorry!) my voice doesn’t feel 100% ever, feels like using it is a slight strain and if I raise my voice it tends to be a little raspy, this is all the time, not just sometimes. But the one thing I really am curious about is I have a ‘wheeze’, again, it’s 24/7, doesn’t get better doesn’t get worse. When it’s quiet just breathing out of my mouth I hear a little whistle, every single time and have done for around a year, does anyone else have this at all? I don’t really suffer with sore throat but overuse (which is actually not overuse at all for normal people) causes discomfort but the wheeze is there continuously. I have an appointment with ENT next month as the last camera I had they never looked at my windpipe and larynx, Just the oesophagus and stomach, but it’s nice to discuss with others who go through these things. Any comments welcome. I wish you all well, mike
