Why my sore throat due to (LPR ) larygopharyngeal reflux gets worse as day progresses. Is it due to speaking or due to food?

In brief: LPR

is rather a diagnosis, not a symptom, what exactly becomes worse? Is it the hoarseness? Or the soreness, or the heart burn as well? Voice fatigue towards the end of the day, or the other symptoms, can have several causes, kindly see an ENT for evaluation, or re-evaluation and a second opnion, it's your right as a patient, best wishes

In brief: Sore throat

Both speaking and spicy irritant foods make reflux symptoms worse.
Keep a food diary and see which foods cause symptoms. Consider papain or bromelian to reduce inflammation due to reflux. Clear.ease is papain/bromelain that you melt in your buccal pouch for relief; ask your doctor about this.
