Does Anyone Get Terrible Acid Reflux That Effects The Voice Badly ?

Does Anyone Get Terrible Acid Reflux That Effects The Voice Badly ?

I get terrible acid reflux and take the generic Prevacid daily for it. It helps a lot.

Here is how I got my acid reflux under total control, almost instantly. I gave up, in a single day, coffee (I was drinking 5-6 cups a day), Diet Coke (I was drinking at least 6 a day) and alcohol (to self medicate, late at night, at least 2). I did cut down on chili peppers and so on but those 3 things were mentioned most often as culprits. My family as shocked I could just stop all of these things. Once I saw the endoscopy of my esophagus and it looked like rusty, corroded pipe, I knew I had to do something fast as that leads to esophageal cancer. Now six years later, I feel it has mostly healed. I rarely get AR now and it’s not nearly as bad as it once was. My singing voice is also coming back.

Yes, I did. I used to sing somewhat well. The reflux made my voice just awful. I could always sing in tune and the reflux caused my voice to crack and be unable to control the actual notes. It has gotten better since I have gotten my reflux under control.
