GI Cocktail and now no voice?? WTH?!

I was in the ER yesterday with URQ pain...persistent heartburn(not that heartburn is uncommon for me) and nausea..and a low grade fever...I went in because I had been getting heckled all day from everyone saying it is pry my GB...
So I went in and told them problem..so they ran all the tests..blood work, x-rays, urine test..(apparently that is to rule out other causes)...said everything else..as far as my kidneys, liver, pancrease, spleen, lungs...yadda yadda..looked fine...but he(the doctor)...is thinking its my GB...so he schudeled me for a US tomorrow...and then prooceeded to give me a GI cocktail..it cured the heartburn but did nothing for the pain...but heres the thing..ever since I took that...I have not had a voice..my voice sounds like I have some awful cold(which I do not) its very high picthed and squeeky and scratchy...Im just wondering if this is something that normally happens after a GI Cocktail? And if anyone else has ever encountered this problem...also wondering for anyone else who has been giving one, due to GB pains and such...did it do anything for you guys..or just like me..just took away the heartburn but the pain was still present and persistent...thanks for listening any answers will be greatly appreciated...Im a little scared over this whole ordeal..and just want it to be done and over with...

Hi,
Hoarseness of voice is one of the manifestations of acid reflux.
I dont think the GI cocktail would have caused it.

I am aware that acid reflux can cause that...but I have never had this happen before..and I didn't get hoarse until after the GI Cocktail...it just seems a little odd and off
