Tems, has been diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis
Reflux laryngitis, according to the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Otolaryngology, is a voice condition caused by irritation and swelling of the vocal folds as a result of stomach fluids backflowing into the throat.
The backflow is known as laryngopharyngeal reflux, according to the department (acid that reaches the level of the throat).
Patients with reflux laryngitis have symptoms that are similar to those of other voice diseases, making it a voice ailment that is frequently overlooked.
