Burning throat at night/morning
I have a persistent burning feeling in my throat in the middle of the night and when I get up in the morning. I don't notice it throughout the day unless I think about it. My doctor looked at my throat, said it was red (redder than usual), and said I probably have an issue with my esophogus, such as a form of acid reflux. A friend said it might be silent reflux (laryngopharyngeal reflux or LPR). I've done some online research and it all supports the dietary/lifestyle changes my doc recommends (low-acid; not eating 3 hours before bed). But the throat thing is my ONLY symptom. No heartburn, no nausea, no coughing, no regurgitation. Has anyone else experienced this isolated symptom and found it to indeed be silent reflux or similar?
Also, back in February I had a benign lesion removed from my tonsil. It fairly small but had started to interfere with breathing and swallowing.
