About 2 months ago, I became hoarse all of a sudden. No illness, no cold. Nothing. Didn't think much of it. After a month, I went to an ENT. I mainly became worried because I googled and discovered persistent hoarseness can be a sign of throat cancer. ENT did a scope down my nose to just look at throat and saw irritation. He suspected GERD. Wanted me to to medicine for a few weeks to see if that cleared it up. Didn't particularly like the place, so am not returning. After 3 weeks on h2 blockers, decided to try a ppi medicine, nexium. Have no relief from h2 blockers. And still have days of acid reflux even with medicine. I have always averaged about 1 day week with acid reflux. I have never had voice problems. I read online that after 3 months of hoarseness it can be hard for your voice box to ever go back to normal, the damage can be permanent. The hoarseness seems worse or I am just growing tired of it. I have to concentrate on producing sound when speak. Anyone have any other ideas what might be going on. I wonder if not related to acid reflux at all since meds aren't helping with the hoarseness at all.
