Inflammation, Reflux, and Swollen Vocal Cords – How a Silent Reflux Diagnosis led me to MEDCOAT
When I recently accepted the news of a silent reflux diagnosis I had no idea the domino effect it would have on my treatment. Silent reflux, also known as laryngopharyngeal reflux, is often referred to as silent because it usually does not cause symptoms in the chest. This gastrointestinal condition causes a backup of stomach acid to flow to the throat, larynx, and esophagus. After identifying the issue, I quickly found out that silent reflux would affect me in more ways than one.
In addition to the inflammation, I began to experience severely swollen vocal cords that caused multiple problems. First, my voice changed. The swelling restricted the sound of my voice, and it became somewhat challenging to communicate. Next, my appetite changed. With my throat being so swollen, I couldn’t eat many of the same foods I was used to consuming because of the difficulty I had swallowing. Lastly, every pill I was prescribed to take was getting stuck in my throat. I never had this problem before so when I found myself not being able to easily swallow the 4 large capsules a day that I needed to battle this inflammation and support my brain health, I began searching for a solution.
When I came across MEDCOAT, I was intrigued. I saw that they offered free samples and thought what could it hurt? I requested some free samples, and the results were beyond my expectations. The capsules I have to take are large, dry, and chalky and before discovering MEDCOAT, I felt like each one was getting lodged halfway down my throat. This coating completely eliminated that feeling and I’m so happy to have found MEDCOAT as a solution. After trying my free samples, I immediately placed a full order. At least I am alleviating one problem on my road to recovery!
