Baking soda in water: Stomach acids from gastric reflux can be very irritating on the throat and vocal cords leading to hoarseness and dry mouth. Omeprazole can also dry out normal secretions that keep your mouth moist. Avoiding acidic foods (citrus, tomatoes, etc.) spicy foods and alcohol can help control gerd. Drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of baking soda after meals will neutralize acids too. ...Read more

Possible LERD?: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid & pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation) = lerd. Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, cough, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, & even a higher risk of throat cancer. May however not be reflux so please get yourself checked. ...Read more

Possible: Or rather LPR, laryngopharyngeal reflux, that's when the stomach acid reaches the throat in GERD. Kindly ask your doctor to refer you to an ENT specialist who would examine your upper airways too for the possible post nasal drip as well, you may need treatment for both conditions, LPR can be controlled when GERD is controlled, good luck ...Read more
