Hi ... execuse me if my english is not perfect as its not my 1st language.
i'm a 22 years old Male , and i'm a dentist by the way , but i'm writing this experience as a patient suffered from LPR and its consequences , sore throat , lumb sensation in one side , stiff neck & painful ear
i have followed the discussions in this forum for nearly a year , and when something worked for me , i registered to tell you my experience as it may be beneficial to someone .
from nearly 2 years, i suffered from an asthma like symptoms , i went to a specilaist , and in just 10 minutes , he diagnosed me with LPR ,i was shocked because i never felt the famous " heartburn" , i tried to follow his instructions regarding my food habits , but it didnot work , after that a lumb sensation in my throat started to appear in my right side , and my right side of neck became heavier & more stiff , my right base of the tongue also appeared to be enlarged with prominent taste buds .
for a while i thought its " cancer " , i visited 2 specialits who confirmed the LPR diagnosis and all them nearly prescribed the same medicines with different trademark names " PPI & ranitidine "
and it didnot work , i became hysterical regarding my throat sensations , i started reading about the nature of LPR , its possible causes , its triggers , & how it affect your throat in detail ..
i started talking with specilatists personally regarding my problem , and i had discussions with some of them , i'm working in a Medical college so it wasnot that hard to have a personal talk with some of them ..
after understanging the nature of this condition and its triggers/causes , i did a radical changes in my life that Finally worked ...
- i swapped sleeping rooms with my brother who is living with me in the same house
- i fasted 2 days/week
- Eating only Home-made food
- eating alot alot of Rice
- Drinking small sips of water continuesly 24/7 ( dont fill your stomach with water , just small gargling sips to wash your throat )
- No tooth paste and no Mouth washes for a month
- using a small soft tooth brush to brush my teath
- Medicines - Daily :
PPI 20 ( 1 tablet )
Ranitidnine ( 2 tablets )
Domperidone ( 2 tablets ) - For 2 weeks only
digestive enzymes ( 3 Tablets )
Carbamazepine ( 1/2 tablet ) - for 2 weeks only
Nystatin Mouth drops ( Gargle & swallow - 4 times/Day - For 1 week only)
after 4 days of this i started to feel better , after 2 weeks , its disppeared , but i still take PPI and ranitidine till now .
what i've written above is my experience as a patient , and all the drugs i used are used after a prescribtion from a specialist , what worked for me may not work for you , i hope what i have written is beneficial to someone ...
