Hello and welcome to HCM,

I have understood your problem but still have some detailing.

Where do you have the edema? If You have oedema in the leg then you need to post this questions in the womens health section and am sure someone will get back to you.

If the edema is in the vocal cords and also for your sore throat the treatment is the same:
1. Start an antireflux medication like pantoprazole for two weeks before food. Your doctor will know about this.
2. Take an antihistamine like levocetrizine in the night for two weeks
3. Do not take anything spicy and do not strain when you speak
4. Avoid anything oily or cold.

if by two weeks you do not get well then you must take an upper GI endoscopy and get back to me or any ENT with the reports
