Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

I have worked through your attached query in detail..

I can certainly understand how frustrating it might have been to you with these health-related issues.

As per your symptoms, the possibility of erosive pharyngitis secondary to the traumatic experience post retching/vomiting of regurgitated food

I generally prescribe a 5 to 7-day course of oral antacid medications of Pantoprazole and analgesics like Tramadol to my patients with similar presentation.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications to you.

Are you satisfied with my consultation?

Is there anything else left to be discussed?

Thank you
