Been on o2 24/7 for 6 years. Two years ago, began to lose voice and have hoarseness. I also have acid reflex. Went to gastroenterologist for endoscopy. Have large hiatal hernia.

They couldn't find anything and finally decided it was a combination of acid reflex and the inhaled meds for my COPD. I now take Prevacid along with Xopenex, Advair, Spiriva.
