Hi thanks for your question.
Laryngitis,irritation in upper part of chest and regular dry cough are all symptoms of GERD.Reflux of acid from stomach into esophaagus (food pipe ) is responsible for these symptoms.
Hiatus hernia is one of common causes of reflux disorder. Gases and heave stomach can be caused by acid peptic disease which is also responsible for GERD.I would suggest you to consult a gastero enterologist who may be able to perform upper G.I endoscopy on you determine cause for your symptoms.Accordingly he/she may prescribe you treatment.
Hope this answers your question.

Hello dear...
It's good to know that you are taking all necessary precautionary measures for GORD.
Management includes:
1. Voice laryngitis will get aggravated on speaking too much.
2. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain
3. Proton pump inhibitors like Omeprazole, etc to take care of GORD.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief in Laryngitis.

Surgical treatment of GORD includes Fundoplication, in which the upper part of the stomach is wrapped around the lower esophageal sphincter to strengthen the sphincter and prevent acid reflux
Also avoid consuming irritating substances such as acidic & rich foods, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.
Try to sleep on the left side, or with your upper body raised.
If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist.
There is no need to will be fine

Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
