I was treated for achalasia about eight years ago. It was treated using balloon dilation and has been fine since then, not even needing PPIs (lansoprazole) until recently (and even then only short term). However, I've recently started a new job and one of my new colleagues pointed out that I only seem to cough when I eat or drink. I'd never really thought about it before - just always seem to have a cough - but I realised they were corrected. Has anyone had similar symptoms or can suggest anything?
I did have an endoscopy before starting lansoprazole, they were concentrating on the stomach but I would have thought they would have mentioned if they'd seen anything in the throat (they did mention the sphincter muscle was still open).
Thanks in advance
