  • I don't think so
    Reflux will give you acid shooting up your esophagus,and pain in your upper chest

  • Acid reflux is a burn in your chest and throat. Hurts like hell too!

    If you woke up with a sore throat, you could have allergies or maybe a cold.

  • Acid reflux isn't something that typically just hits you with a bang one day, like a sore throat. Sometimes an oncoming cold can make your food taste funny. I'd stoke up on the vitamin C, just in case.

  • It can be what the others have suggested, but reflux can have mild symptoms, not just severe ones. Some of the milder symptoms can be a sore throat, coughing, and a heaviness in your chest when laying down. I speak from ongoing experience with it. Google it and read up on it. GL
