do you have had a dry cough for the last few months and I also get gerd and a similar sore ness you describe I now put mine down to environmental allergies .
Actually my cough is usually productive. I have asthma. But with the meds, it has been so much better. I was allergy tested and all is normal, no allergies... but the asthma is due to weather changes... But I do have the Acid reflux. I every once in a while, feel a lump in my throat, and sometimes discomfort, soreness near the tail end of the esphagus, upper stomach. It will last for a few days, its not excruciating but feels like someone punched me in the stomach,, achy... now today its gone... just a worry wart!!!
