In brief: See GI doc

I suspect that your reflux is likely the cause for your throat sensation and Prtnx may not be enough to control it.
The fast heart beat is likely from the long acting bronchodilator in Advair. With just mild asthma (detected by methacholine challenge only), it is debatable whether you need to take Advair. Consider stopping it . Consider getting checked for vocal cord dysfunction as well.

I agree that further assessment is needed.
Pulmonary function testing and the asthma control test may help your physician to determine whether Advair is advisable. Avoid any triggers of allergic or pulmonary symptoms.
