LPR vs GERD: The hallmark of GERD/HEARTBURN .But sometimes the acid travels so far up the esophagus that it reaches the throat and voice box. When that happens it's called laryngopharyngeal Reflux. Unlike GERD, LPR requires two muscles—both the LES and the upper esophageal sphincter—to function improperly. Burning mouth,throat irritation, dysphagia are symptoms.Dx easy ,doing P/E.
