Hello and welcome to HCM,

I have understood your fear about the sore throat

In all probability you may have had an episode of upper respiratory tract infection and a silent reflux problem though you may not have any symptoms.

In these cases I would usually advice my patients to take amoxycillin-clav 625 mg twice daily after food for five days, tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg twice daily before food for two weeks along with an antacid syrup thrice daily after food for two weeks. Your doctor will know about these. Also avoid oily, spicy and high flavored food and do not strain when you speak.

Try the above for at least two weeks and see if the symptoms recur or reduce. If they persist or increase then get an upper GI endoscopy along with throat swab and complete blood test and get back to me with the report.

Take care and do not worry
