Otolaryngologist: You may be experiencing laryngopharyngeal reflux rather than the more common gerd. It is more difficult to diagnose and treat. I feel that you should consult an otolaryngologist for evaluation, advice and treatment.

You have nailed it: Your reflux appears to be the problem. You need a vigorous program of weight control, raising the head of the bed and a gastroenterology evaluation to be certain there are not any other resons for the GERD
