Can gerd make even water feel like it's coming back up from the acid irritating your throat? i felt the water go down my chest, but it seems like the last sip i drinked feels like it's stuck in my throat. i can talk though normally and breathe?

Bad GERD can. If you have a problem at night with water brash coming back into your throat try elevating feet of head of bed on 8" blocks. You can get them and Bed Bath and Beyond, Gravity never sleeps.
