A screening for laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), also known as silent reflux. Symptoms of LPR include changes in the voice, throat clearing, mucus in the throat with discomfort, swallowing problems, and a chronic cough that does not respond to medications. LPR can be caused or exacerbated by chronic asthma, recurrent sinusitis, dental disease and even cancer. LPR is not GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).
