Can acid reflux or LPR cause a very red raw throat? Has a mild burn sensation. I take Pepcid (famotidine) AC once daily. Had endoscopy done; nothing abnormal.?

Yes can be others. Gastroesophageal reflux (gerd) can cause irritation of the throat if not treated appropriately. There can be acid reflux and non-acid reflux as well so it is important to follow with a GI or ENT doctor to make sure that you are treated appropriately. Viral illnesses such as a pharyngitis can also cause raw red throats. If you are not improved over a week, you should follow up with your doctor.

Been getting acid reflux (felt in neck) daily. Indicative of something detrimental? Could tea and/or yogurt cause this? 10mg Pepcid (famotidine) AC stops it.

Acid reflux per se. is not detrimental and is treatable..HOWEVER an evaluation by a Gastroenterologist is probably a good idea since some esophageal; disorders need special attention (eg "Barrett's esophogas") Hope this helps! Dr Z. Read more...
