LPR is similar to GERD. LPR, you may not have the classic symptoms of GERD, Heartburn. That's why it can be difficult to diagnose and sometimes called silent reflux. In LPR Upper & Lower esophageal sphincters do not work right, Silent reflux is common in infants because their sphincters are undeveloped, shorter esophagus, and they lie down much of the time, In adults etiology is unknown.
