Brief Answer:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
From the complaints it seems to be a gastric acid reflux disease.
Please tell me do you have any history of regurgitation or burning sensation in the throat?
Any history of constipation?
It would be better if you can send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.
Follow up with the required information

Take care
Thanks and regards

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for the prompt reply.

Now, i am at office not in a position to take the snap of my throat. I am sorry for that, but yesterday night i checked and it looks red color inside the throat.

But, i never used to have any burning sensation in the throat not constipation kind. Just every night i feel that stomach acid flow back to the throat kind, but never used to have any kind of pain.

This is the first time without cold i am getting this problem.

Regards,
XXXX XXXXXXX
