Amanda I do believe so, when I have reflux at night my throat is sore and irritated and my voice is harsh sounding. So Yes it can happen.

Hi Amanda.....my reflux (without sclero) causes severe pain between my shoulder blades. It feels like a knife is in there. I had pain for several years before I tried an OTC med just to see if it would help. Lo and behold, it cleared right up. doctor was surprised, too. I had workup for heart, lung embolism, and liver/gallbladder because the pain was so severe one day. I don't miss a day now or else I feel it!!!

Take care, Everyone.
Margaret

Hello Ladies

Thanks for your replies reflux is clearly a familiar issue for most sclerodermians!

Take care.

Hi Amanda,

I get a sore throat at least 2 weeks out of every month. Whenever I get I know that I am going to feel bad for the next couple days! I think of it as the beginning of my flare even though with sclero you don't have flares. My throat burns and stays red!

Hugs,
Nina
