Feeling in throat in area of left tonsil. Endoscope saw nothing but swollen lymphoid bumps and swollen behind voicebox? Said acid reflux. What do I do?
Reflux. Greetings. Acid reflux can cause irritation to sensitive mucous membranes that surround the voice box area. This stomach juice can trigger inflammation throughout the entire upper airway. Since your doctor had already made the diagnosis, the treatments are to avoid eating before bedtime. Eating a low acid diet, weight loss, avoiding alcohol and smoking. Consider an antacid too.
