A member asked:
how can it be determined if a person has undergone blunt trauma to the neck/throat area versus 'atypical acid reflux' ? would both show erosion?

History is important: Well, the first logical answer would be, was there any 'blunt trauma to the neck/throat'? Acid reflux is usually treated with antacids or diagnosed with a test (a camera is inserted into the stomach). You should see your family practice physician if you have further questions.
