i started to face voice problems while singing, that where related to an Reflux esophagitis (GERD), according to my physician. i want to understand more about the correlation between these two situations.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease can affect your voice for speaking and singing. Medical treatment (medication, diet, positioning, losing weight if overweight, reduce or eliminate the intake of alcohol) will help reduce symptoms. Your doctor may refer you to an otolaryngologist (also known as an Ears, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor) or a speech language pathologist for further assessment and treatment.
Over the years, I have talked to several professional singers and choisters who have worked to control their reflux and keep singing. I know you will be singing again in the near future!
