I think that you need an endoscopy to confirm that sore throat is because of GERD or for any other cause.

And ack pain (dull) on right side just below ribs, may or may not be due to gall bladder problem. An ultrasound along with proper physical examination are needed to establish diagnosis. Further management can be planned based on results.
