'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Laryngpharyngeal reflux (most commonly called silent reflux) is actually a SYMPTOM of GERD. It refers to gastric contents pushing their way up to the upper digestive tract (thus larygopharngeal, referring to the larynx (voice box) and pharynx respectively). I myself generally don't get heartburn. Laryngpharyngeal reflux and chest pains are my primary symptoms.

I think LPR is silent reflux. Appears more in the throat (throat burning, coughing, clearing the throat, feeling of a lump in the throat). GERD symptoms are those but also exhibit the typical of heartburn and chest pain as well.

Is it possible to have both?

Kristen Kiley
Charlotte Perkins Salvatierra My only knowledge is from google to be honest. But I think the cause is the same, it's just the symptoms that you exhibit that differ. I might be wrong though.

Dave Wakefield
Yes you can have both.

What meds good for LPR ( something lump on my throat)

Kristen Kiley
Mark Alvarez Ticay Honestly, I don't really know what is good and bad anymore. The drugs they prescribe suppress the stomach acid to reduce the symptoms, but don't address why you are getting the symptoms in the first place. The problem with the drugs I think is if you suppress the acid too much, it messes with your digestion in general. I'm currently on a PPI (Protonix).

My doctor gives me esmeporazole but i get itchy on my skin.

Kristen Kiley
Mark Alvarez Ticay The drugs definitely cause their own weird side effects other than what we were exhibiting before. Is it helping with your LPR symptoms. For sore throat, I ordered slippery elm to soothe my throat. It's a powder you mix with water and drink.

Mark Alvarez Ticay
Maybe good to try herbal med?

Kristen Kiley
That's kind of what I'm thinking. Instead of prescriptions, try natural remedies. I've already modified my diet drastically.

Mark Alvarez Ticay
Any you can suggest which is good for LPR?😊

Kristen Kiley
Mark Alvarez Ticay I'm still learning myself. But I think for the majority of people, it all comes down to diet and lifestyle. Eating mostly fruits, veggies and lean meats. Don't eat late at night (3hours before bed), sleep at an incline etc.. But everyone is different, so it's hard to point any one person in the right direction. It's a matter of trial and error.

Muhammad Ali
both are include in Gerd?

Kristen Kiley
I think LPR is caused by GERD. It's just harder to diagnose because it doesn't exhibit the heartburn/chest pain which are classic symptoms of GERD.

Kristen Kiley
Muhammad Ali Just a few tips I've followed that helps. Eat smaller meals more frequently (I eat five meals in between 7am and 730pm), lay at an incline (no flat), do not lay down for three hours after your last meal. I eat mainly veggies, fruits and lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish). I was diagnosed July 31st, and it is very slowly improving. Good luck to you.
