your symptoms are suggestive of condition known as reflux laryngopharyngitis. in this condition your stomach acid will recurrently spill into your throat. you need to avoid tea, coffee, snoring, fat rich food and spicy food for sometime. you need to walk a bit after food and take anti reflux medicines for few weeks antibiotics are not useful
