My dad has been coughing sneezing and blowing nose since 1year. Doctors thought it's jus common cold but aft 6 months i lost hopes. After further research online I now suspect what my dad's facing might be Laryngopharyngeal Reflux. Over the last 2 years we notice some change in his voice. He feels.like something is there behind hos throat (like sputum) He tries to clear throat but nothing comes out. Also a feel like something is stuck between throat and nose. Due to which he keeps blowing nose. Only if Hot water is consumed this cough stops. ENT doc used medical mirror to check my dad's throat and ear. She said everything is normal. So currently he was put into ANTACIDS. BUT that's not curing the symptoms too. Do i need to get an ENDOSCOPY done? If yes, would that be Nasal or Oral ENDOSCOPY? Can LPR be cured? My dad s diabetic and obese too. Thanks in advance.
