... 2016. I have been in remission, but have really started the night sweats again. Also, feeling some chills, heavy chest, change in my voice like laryngitis. Any comments or thoughts are appreciated. I see my doctor at UCSF in September
I too have CLL and was having laryngitis for two months. Internist referred me to an ENT who put a small camera through my nose and said he could see inflammation of the voice box, probably caused by acid reflux. I stopped eating spicy foods, caffeine, soda, etc and increased my Prilosec and within a few days, my voice returned to normal and has been ever since. Also NOTE: the severe chest pains I was having at night, which I thought was a side effect of Imbruvica, was actually being caused by "Silent GERD" and went away just like my vocal problems. I have only been on Imbruvica for 15 days. Minor side effects except it has driven down my body's ability to fight infection to zero, so my oncologist has scheduled a blood transfusion for Monday morning.
