ENT Specialist 's  Response

You may be having reflux of gastric contents into the throat which is causing you the throat discomfort. You need to start on Proton pump inhibitors (such as Esomeprazole/Pantoperazole) and avoid smoking/alcohol/spicy/oily foods/coffee/tea/stress. Before starting on the medications please get yourself thoroughly investigated by an apt ENT specialist.
