I was diagnosed about 5 months ago with LPR - it took awhile since my GP didn't think you could have reflux without chest heartburn! This board has been a blessing - this disease is so frustrating! I have the usual symptoms - back of my throat is always soar, scratchy, and I am constantly clearing it. Always feels like there is a lump in my throat. Taking Nexium 2x a day but it hasn't been helping much. My question is, do others find that the glands in their neck are constantly swollen?? When I have a flair up in my throat the glands get very sore too. It seems to contribute to my overall discomfort by putting more pressure on my throat. I can't even wear turtlenecks someday b/c the pressure is too much. It just seems to be the glands on one side, and the pressure goes all the way up to my ear. Any one else experience this??
