Diagnosis tool

This test is in two parts

The first part assesses digestive symptoms and the second part assesses Laryngo-pharyngeal symptoms, it's important that both parts are completed.

Begin test

You scored out of on the digestive symptoms test

Patients who benefit from surgery tend to have scores >20 on either or both tests

A low score may be the result of a single prominent symptom so you may still be eligible for surgery

If you have a low score, you may not need surgery but we may be able to help you with an accurate diagnosis

To help you understand your condition we offer a specialist nurse telephone consultation service, the first of its kind in the UK.
