Burning in throat that aggravates on excessive talking, during cold weather, occasional cough. Treatment?

Dear doctor, I am a 63 years old university professor from Bangladesh. For long time I was suffering due to some kind of burning sensation all through the day felt inside my throat . If I talked much (lecturing in the classes) or if the weather was cold , it became worse, specifically in the late night and early morning. So, I have consulted a doctor six months before. After check up he told me to go to bed at least 3 hours after having dinner. And I am gradually feeling better. But during this winter when the temperature is very low, I am feeling mild soar throat, but not severe as before. In this condition I am careful not to be caught by cold. But still feeling not fully cured. Sometimes I need to discharge some cough too. Therefore, could you please tell me what can I do more? Is there any need to take any medicine now? What I want - to be fully cured from this throat problem. Regards Masuduzzaman, PhD

Thanks for posting your query.
There may be possibility of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), causing burning sensation along with persistent sore throat.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for endoscopy to rule out ulcers in food pipe (esophagus).
You should take proton pump inhibitors along with prokinetics for relief of your symptoms.
Avoid tomatoes, citrus fruits, onion, garlic and oily and spicy food.
Take soft bland diet for coming few months.
take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
