In brief: Reflux

Greetings. Acid reflux can cause irritation to sensitive mucous membranes that surround the voice box area.
This stomach juice can trigger inflammation throughout the entire upper airway. Since your doctor had already made the diagnosis, the treatments are to avoid eating before bedtime. Eating a low acid diet, weight loss, avoiding alcohol and smoking. Consider an antacid too.
