LPR or laryngopharyngeal reflux is a condition where gastric acid spills into the throat causing various symptoms such as
1. Foreign body sensation while swallowing
2. Burning sensation in throat
3. Dryness of throat
4. Recurrent cough
5. Change in voice
Usually diagnosis is clinical and no investigations are required in normal circumstances. Treatment involves course of anti reflux medications for few weeks to months and change in dietary habits
