Your symptoms point to reflux laryngitis. Following investigations may be able to confirm it;

1) Barium esophagography

2) Ambulatory 24-hour pharyngoesophageal pH monitoring

This is not likely due to thyroid.

Following measures are helpful:

1) Small 5-6 meals a day.

2) Last meal should be eaten 3 hours before lying down.

3) Avoid; fried or fatty foods, chocolate, peppermint, alcohol, coffee, carbonated beverages, citrus fruits or juices, tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard, vinegar.

4) Eat slowly so air is not swallowed.

5) Elevate the head of the bed by 6 inches.

6) Avoid tight clothing.

7) Stop smoking.

Please see the resource;

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

am I on the rights meds

Yes, your medicines are good.

Anxiety may increase the reflux so relaxation techniques, deep breathing exercises, and group sporting activities will help you overall.

It is pleasure and privilege assisting you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
