4. A hoarse voice:
If your throat feels raspy and you know you aren’t suffering from an upper respiratory ailment, it may be a sign that you’re dealing with acid reflux. Stomach acid flowing into your esophagus can irritate your vocal cords, giving your voice a hoarse quality or even causing it to crack unexpectedly, especially after eating.
5. Cough, sore throat, or asthma:
If stomach acid is seeping into your throat or lungs, soreness and coughing are predictable outcomes, and if you’re already an asthma sufferer, the strain of constantly coughing can actually trigger an asthma attack.
If you are asthmatic, it’s all the more important that you treat your acid reflux to help avoid unnecessary attacks.
These are just a few of the symptoms associated with acid reflux. You can read more here.
If you suspect that you may have acid reflux, it’s important to get a full evaluation from your doctor to rule out any more serious disorders, including stomach ulcers, cancer, or heart problems.
