I have GERD and have been taking meds for 4 years now.Yes, GERD can cause sever sore throats
and even laryngitis
, because of the backed up acid coming back up through the esophagus and into the mouth area. It can also cause heart burn, barrets esophagus, where food gets stuck in throat, and eventually throat cancer, if left untreated. If your dr mentions this again, suggest getting a second opionion, from a Gastro doctor. It took me a year to finally get a right dianoses.
