Hi Keok1,
GERD can cause sore throat, stickiness in the throat, cough and hoarseness of voice. But excessive phlegm due to GERD is very unlikely.

You might be having some other problem in addition to GERD. Your symptoms are suggestive of post nasal drip.

You can get more information by posting in the 'Respiratory disorder' forum or by consulting your personal physician.
