Raspy voice: There are many possible causes of a raspy voice. Some are related to upper respiratory tract problems, such as postnasal drip, and some to other problems, such as inadequately treated Gerd. there are other potential causes related to the larynx also. You should be evaluated by your doctor to see if you need to increase or change your reflux medicine and to evaluate for other problems. Good luck.
