HI

In many cases this is undiagnosed acid reflux.

It can cause all sorts of irritation in the throat and even the bronchial tubes.

Your doctor should treat you for acid refulx and see if this helps.

That is one way to tell.

The other is PH monitoring of the esophagus, which is done by a specialist.
