Ep102 Singing Problems and Acid Reflux You May Have it without Knowing

This tutorial talks about two forms of acid reflux. One kind you feel as heartburn and you knowwhen you have it and why. The other reflux is common but you don’tknow you have it. However, it can also cause problems with yourvoice and singing. Inside this tutorial you’ll learn how to recognizethe effects of reflux on your vocal cords and what steps to take to protect your voice! Hi, I’m Chuck Gilmore with Power To Sing. I have reflux.

But it’s not the heartburn kind. That’s called GERD or Gastroesophageal RefluxDisease. It hurts. You know it when you have it. It burns in your chest and throat. You take Tums or Pepto Bismol for relief. It can fry your vocal cords with the acidfrom your stomach. That’s not the reflux I have.

I have a silent kind of reflux. I didn’t even know I had it until I injuredmy vocal cords when singing sick. The ENT scoped my cords and found noduleson the false cords and moderate reflux. He said the reflux was making it difficultfor the nodules to heal because acid was irritating my injury. Yuck. My kind of reflux was silent to me becauseI didn’t feel heartburn. It’s called LPR which stands for LaryngopharyngealReflux.

Here are the causes, symptoms and treatmentoptions. I’m quoting from the Cleveland ‘sonline information found here. “Acid made in the stomach travels up theesophagus (swallowing tube). When that stomach acid gets to the throat,it is called laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR).â€� “Anyone can get LPR, but it shows up moreoften as people age. People who have certain dietary habits, peoplewho consistently wear tighter fitting or binding clothing, people who are overweight, and peoplewho are overstressed are more likely to have laryngopharyngeal reflux.â€�

“There are many symptoms of LPR, all ofwhich relate to sensations in the throat. Fifty percent of people with LPR do not havesymptoms of heartburn or an upset stomach. When there are symptoms, they include:Mild hoarseness Sensation of a lump in the throatNeed to clear the throat Sensation of mucous sticking in the throatand/or postnasal drip Chronic coughDifficulty swallowing Sore throatRed, swollen, or irritated voice box Personally, I was always clearing my throat.

I always had post nasal drip. I also had congestion in my chest even whenI didn’t have a cold. Periodically I had soreness here for seeminglyno reason. When I sing with LPR my cords feel thick andheavy. Everything feels harder to do. So I try and control it. What I really don’t want is the acid toburn my vocal cords and cause permanent hoarseness, permanent damage.
