Millions of Americans have chronic cough, chronic clearing of the throat and a host of symptoms that may all really be acid reflux.

 

Dr. Jamie Koufman:
It’s a great masquerader it is allergies that aren’t allergies, it’s sinusitis that isn’t sinusitis, it’s asthma that isn’t asthma and it certainly isn’t post nasal drip that wakes you up in the middle of the night – it’s reflux.
