You may have an esophageal motility disorder.A gastroenterologist could evaluate & advise you. Your current sore throat is most likely an infection,viral or strep. An otolaryngologist can also check your pharynx because of your recurrent symptoms and at the same time order a throat culture because of your current sore throat.
