I was diagnose with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux about 2 weeks ago.It started 8 weeks ago with a dry cough.Then after 2 weeks, I was waking at night not breathing and choking. After a couple of doctors, I was diagnosed with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux .The doctor started me on omeprazole, 40mg twice a day.This didn't do nothing for me.The acid is now reaching now nose.I haven't slept the last 2 nights.I wake up not breathing or I am choking on mucus or acid.He switch me to Prevacid starting tomorrow, 40mg twice a day. Today I hardly ate anything, but I have acid reflux all day.This whole time, I have had never stomach problems or pain.I keep having to clear my throat all day and I lose my voice at least 20 times a day for about a minute.When I try to talk nothing comes out.Is there any other treatment I can be doing to help?Should I be going to a different doctor?
