I have LPR and am, currently, trying to manage without any medication. Five months of Lansoprazole and Ranitidine didn't help much. I've adjusted my diet and chew gum after meals, which helps somewhat and am now waiting for an appointment for a Barium Swallow. I belong to a choir and, although I've noticed that my vocal range has altered - it's lower - and I get hoarse after singing, I am still trying to sing. However, my throat was very sore after last week's rehearsal. The hospital consultant I saw at the end of last week didn't seem very sure what to say about the choir. I don't think he'd come across anybody with LPR who sang before. I wondered if anybody else had experienced the same difficulty. What did you do? And by continuing to sing am I damaging my vocal chords even more? I'm loathe to give up something I really enjoy, but am worried that I am making things even worse.
