Suggest Treatment For Soreness In The Throat And Laryngitis
Can be vocal polyps!
Firstly thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through all your details!
Its not GERD.GERD presents with feature like severe heart burn,gastritis and acid peptic disorder.History of 3 episodes episodes of acid reflux in a life time is not sufficient for diagnosing GERD.A problem with only voice without other symptoms of laryngitis points more toward Vocal polyps.
Vocal polyps cause problem with voice without causing any pain and is often missed by many physicians.Patients very often complains of feeling dryness in mouth.
I would recommend you to go for laryngoscopy.In this test your larynx will be directly visualised for presence of polyps.
Apart from that there are a number of syndromes which presents with dry mouth associated with change in voice(hoarseness) ,However your history is very suggestive of polyposis.
So i would ask you to go for a test named laryngoscopy,Its not GERD.Even if its GERD change in voice with dryness is not related to that.
