Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been diagnosed with GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disorder) as confirmed by an ENT specialist, I took medicine for over a month but I did not get totally well. I changed my diet plans, cut off fatty foods, fried foods, citrus foods, etc., started exercise. I elevate my head while sleeping. But nowadays I wake up in the middle of night with very dry mouth and extreme sore throat, sometimes coughing. When I drink water even warm water my throat is itching, it does not get much itchy while swallowing. I am feeling comparatively at day time.
