There are a wide variety of symptoms associated with reflux. Some people even have reflux with no symptoms at all. Sometimes these symptoms happen suddenly but in many cases they are longstanding and slowly progressive. Some will have symptoms associated to the throat (LPR), some the airways and lungs (Respiratory), but for many people their symptoms will be confined to the stomach and oesophagus. Some people may just suffer from one symptom such as heartburn or a cough however for others they may have a multitude of different symptoms and problems. The key question to ask is ‘could my symptoms be a result of reflux or is there potentially another serious or treatable cause’.
