sorry you were found to have bad polyps and nodules on your vocal cords
severe acid reflux coming up from your stomach can burn and irritate your vocal cords and throat, especially when you sleep, and this can lead to sore throat, heart burn, sour taste in the back of the throat and also vocal cord irritation
have you battled heart burn and acid reflux before?
certain foods like alcohol, tomato sauces, spicy foods, oily foods, fatty meals, sodas, black pepper can all cause acid reflux.
weight loss and increasing abdominal muscle core strength can help decrease acid reflux.
let me know if you have questions.
