throat problems

Posted by @lizal, Tue, Jun 26 7:44pm

Hi all, I have mild, well-controlled asthma (using Asmanex currently), and it gives me very little trouble. In November I had laryngitis and went to a throat specialist who diagnosed silent reflux, and after two months of Protonix it was gone. It’s come back and my asthma doctor thought it was Qvar, hence the change to Asmanex. I tried Protonix on my own, but it hasn’t worked. My voice has come back pretty well since yesterday but I feel like I have so much mucus in my throat, and I can’t get rid of it. Using NetiPot, Mucinex, and my asthma meds. Any ideas? I see my throat doctor July 11, BTW. Thanks in advance!

Hello @lizal, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I apologize for the delay in your welcome. You will notice that I have moved your discussion to our group in ear nose and throat- I hope to connect you with other members there discussing similar issues.

Can you tell me, when you were seen for your laryngitis, did your physician scope you? With all the mucus have you noticed if it changes with diet?

Is there activity here? I am 60 and was just diagnosed as having malrotation intestines, which gave me GERD (slime) which created post nasal drip, which is constant. We believe it was asymptomatic as I was always so active. In January I had back surgery which put me down on my back for 6 weeks, then!
I started the cough, the slime, the spitting all night. They thought it was bacterial, treated me with steroids, cough medicine and inhalers.Then I developed a fungus, but still had the cough, ditto again, then I saw my doc, he referred me to a gastro doc, so I had an endoscopy, and he was surprised that my food wasn't digested after 12 hours, so I had a MRI, lung XRaY and finally a CT scan which surprised us all with my malrotation of my intestines. (Usually discovered in neo natal as it develops in utero and they operate).
Question is….. Anyone else have to deal with this? I know it is very rare. and second, I just got back from a week at Canyon Ranch, where I worked out all day, every day, and I was greatly improved each day.
