LPR: Postnasal drip is a possibility, but you may be experiencing laryngopharangeal reflux which is more troublesome than GERD and doesn't respond to typical antigerd treatment. An Otolaryngologist could evaluate you and confirm a diagnosis of LPR. He/she could give you more information and advice.
