Hi, i was diagnosed with gastric reflux in march after a gastroscopy and when i asked about getting swollen tonsils along with the indigestion and heartburn they said it was all connected.
So i wondered has anyone else experienced this? and what helped relieve it? the swelling in my throat goes away eventually but its come back atm and really bothering me. I havent yet got medication for my GORD as ive had other things to sort out but ive been controlling my diet by cutting down dairy intake which has helped a great deal.
Hi......yes it is possible for gerd to affect ur tonsils and ur vocal cords as well.
It will cause a froggy sounding voice......
I see u mention u r avoiding dairy, but it is not the only food that may cause u issues...please see our Health pages here on MedHelp for the lifestyle changes as well as safe foods and foods to avoid.
