Reflux and LPR Symptom Checker

An invaluable diagnostic tool we use with all RefluxUK patients.

This scientifically validated questionnaire provides an objective measurement of your symptoms. In just 5 minutes you’ll have an independent assessment of the severity of your symptoms.

This test is in two parts

The first part assesses digestive symptoms (typical reflux) and the second part assesses Laryngo‑Pharyngeal (LPR) symptoms, it's important that both parts are completed.

Complete the test in full to find your digestive and LPR scores. We will also email you a report on your results free of charge.
