Treat the reflux: Acid reflux is an common cause of the symptoms you describe and needs to be treated if diagnosed. As a surgeon treating chronic reflux, I commonly see patients from ENT docs. Throat symptoms of reflux (LPR or laryngeal-pharyngeal reflux) often take much longer to improve than the typical burning pain of esophageal reflux. And, you can have LPR without indigestion. But you're unlikely to choke.
