Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have severe pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat). It is highly possible due to the reflux of acid from the stomach.

You need to take some precautions:

  1. Avoid food items like spicy foods, excess coffee, fried foods, etc.
  2. Avoid eating to a full stomach, rather prefer frequent small feeds.
  3. Have only a light dinner, that too at least an hour before you go to bed.
  4. You can take Pantocid-D (a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone) tablets twice daily 30 minutes before food for three days. Avoid taking them for prolonged periods.

Please review with me after three days so that I can guide you further. Good luck.
