Hi there, how are you all??

So i've got LPR and the following symptons: idiopathic chronic cough, lump in the throat, constant mucus hypesecretion being expelled by the cough and constant throat throat clearing.

As well as the following exams and medicines being currently taken: clear chest scan, normal pulmonary function test. Accarus allergy being treated with dymista. Nasopharyngolaryngoscopy with edema in the larynx. Nissen Fundiplacature done due to Hiatal Hernia and Barret's Esophagus. Carbamazepine for probable sensory neuropathic cough and Oximax for not anymore probable Asthma. PPI's and H2 Blockers in the past for the GERD symptons (heartburn) that i was having before the surgery and Gaviscon now.

My question is: even tho' i'm working on the LPR diet and doing all the classic GERD/LPR symptons control i'm still not having much relief so, could Chronic Bronchitis have been developed due to LPR even tho' i have clear chest scan and pulmonary function test?

    That's a question for your doctor or nurse.

      Your docs must know something of what is happening as you wouldn't have achieved diagnosis.  also check patient UK or NHS choices site search box on each area of your questioning.

      The BLF helpline may be able to advise you further also:

      Oh but you have not had the chronic lung diagnosis yet, so as aitarg suggest check back in with your doctor and ask for appropriate tests to eliminate or confirm if you have or have not.

      No point in guessing, test results are the indicators.

    Kevin I have know idea what your going thru, but it sound like there treating every type of sympton you might have, It all sounds like some form of acid reflux of some kind. I do believe diet is the most important thing with that condition, maybe ginger plant, peppermint etc many natural foods they might have already suggested, as far as chronic bronchitis that is upper lung, my COPD is emphysema that is lower part of lung, do you have shortnest of breath ? I'm sure I don't have to tell that stomach acid is no picnic,  Maybe homophathic treatments you would be surprised how many doctors are really taking this approach more and more.

      No, i don't have shortness of breath, it appears to be only the chronic cough and the mucus hypersecretion of the Bronchiti's symptons that i have.

      No, not stuffy nose. I don't know if i really have wheezing 'cause i've kinda felt some wheezing one day when i was applying tests to my students that i tried to cough less, but normally i don't feel wheezing.

      I have a dry chronic cough but it seems to be related to the mucus 'cause i'm always expelling it through the cough.

      I've tried Nissen surgery, tried PPI's, H2 Blockers, Oximax for Asthma, Dymista for allergies (which i have but it didn't solved almost anything), cutting all the classic GERD food/beverages triggers and Gaviscon, as well as Carbamazepine.

      I'm arranging some kitchen stuff right now to try doing a GERD/LPR diet, as well as buying Ginger and Aloe Vera, but i fear these won't really do much as i had had been trying some strict diet when i decided to use suplements. 

      It's been going on for 2 years already and it seems to have been worsening since then. It has been a really infernal couch and mucus that i've been living with.

      My mucus color is white, very, very sticky as you could glue stuff with it.
