I'm not asking for a diagnosis but hopefully some advice from fellow sufferers.
I have been travelling Asia for around four months but I'm currently contemplating flying home to the UK because I feel so down.
I developed a sore throat a few months ago. At first it would be 'bad' for a few days and then the symptoms would lessen (albeit still be there) until they flared up again a few days later. Now it's constant, every day. It's not like a sore throat I've ever had with an illness i.e. Covid, cold etc . I have a constant feeling of a lump in the throat and the feeling of pressure on my throat, though I can swallow fine when eating and drinking. I've had persistent headaches, post nasal drip, pressure in the nose and always cough with thick phlegm straight after eating. About a week ago, I ate some very spicy food and my throat has been worse than ever since.
I've been to countless doctor's here but finally went to an ENT specialist two weeks ago. They looked at my throat with a camera and could see my larynx was swollen which they said would be caused by acid reflux. I have never experienced heartburn before the trip and have had it maybe twice since being away.
I'm sorry if this sounds like rambling nonsense but I've now got a tickly sensation/cough and it's the last straw.
I've saved for years, given up my job and sold my things for a trip of a lifetime but instead spend my time crying and upset.
Do these symptoms sound like they could be LPR?
