LPR: Laryngopharyngeal edema (lpr) is a form of acid reflux that is often 'silent', meaning that heart burn is absent. If tiny amounts of acids make it high into the back of your throat, a dry cough, hoarseness, shortness of breath or ear fullness from eustachian tube irritation can develop. Treatment is to discontinue caffeine and alcohol, no late meals and otc-ppi such as Omeprazole before meals.
