GERD/aspiration: If the symptom also is associated with heartburn, an acidic taste in your mouth, taking an over the counter PPI, avoiding excessive spicy foods, caffeine and late night snacks/meals may relieve these symptoms. If you experience cough, fever, runny nose, please have a screening test for COVID 19. COVID 19 may present with few symptoms, and fatigue is a common clinical feature. Please follow up.
