  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

Here is a link to what LPR is....another name for it is Silent Reflux as not everyone with it will have heart burn which is typical for most reflux or GERD conditions.....http://www.medhelp.org/tags/health_page/259/Gastroenterology/Symptoms-of-Laryngopharyngeal-Reflux-are?hp_id=779

Do talk to your Dr as to possible PND issues or allergies which may be a trigger for you to have LPR.

I had LPR last year.  Yes, the lump in the throat is scary but that's a symptom of LPR.
If you don't get better in 10 days be sure to tell your doctor. It took me 2.5 months to finally get over it, but maybe that was just me
