In brief: LERD & Dysphagia

Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid & pepsin will result in inflammation of 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, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, & even a higher risk of throat cancer. Dysphagia with gerd, weight loss, hematemesis requires evaluation.
