Have throat pain. Not cured by antibiotics. Diagnosed as GERD. Taking controlled diet. How to cure throat pain?

Hi Doctor, I have been suffering with severe throat pain since 2 months which didn t go down even after taking antibiotics . I met an ENT doctor and he confirmed that i have GERD and the throat pain is because of that. I m taking a tablet daily morning before breakfast (tablet to control the gastric problem). The throat pain has reduced by 80% but still i have 20%. I m on controlled diet sine then. Please help me as how i can be free of this throat pain.

Please dont worry as throat pain due to gerd is very common and i would like you to continue the medications since it may take even 2-3 months before you are totally fine.
Please continue following the dietary advice as this will help prevent recurrence.
Please have patience and you will be fine.
