Common symptoms of acid reflux include a sensation that something is stuck in the throat; difficulty swallowing; dry, itchy, or painful throat and a hoarse voice.
Treatment for acid reflux is tailored to its severity and may include medications to reduce stomach acid.
Anyone who suffers from acid reflux can benefit from avoiding spicy or acidic foods, large meals, citrus fruit and juices and caffeinated and carbonated beverages. Smoking and alcohol also worsen reflux.
If you think you may have acid reflux, an otolaryngologist can determine more by examining your throat.
