Acid In Throat When I Wake Up

Laryngopharyngeal reflux is reflux of stomach contents into the larynx or pharynx, which is the throat, and it usually presents with symptoms of hoarseness, coughing, clearing, mucus, feeling like something’s in your throat, which we call globus, or maybe a sore throat. Interestingly, less than 50 percent of the people with laryngopharyngeal reflux will complain of any heartburn or indigestion. That’s because the esophagus and the throat are different. The esophagus has barriers against reflux when the throat doesn’t, so people can have the throat symptoms that we spoke about, but not the heartburn or indigestion.
