I have been clearing my throat and getting a hoarse/raspy voice off and on for 8 mos. now. I went to my Dr. and he told me to take Claritin for allergies. That didn't seem to do anything so I went to an ENT who said my voice box was red from reflux and was prescribed Omeprazole 40 mg. I have been on it for 3 mos. and it hasn't done much. I was having some heartburn and seemed to help. The type of job I have some days I'm on the phone a lot and that is when I have more of a problem. The more I talk the weaker my voice seems. My ENT also had me get a Barrium swallow xray which wasnegative. What can it be? Any advice??
