Throat irritation

I have been having throat irritation since the last few days. It begins at night, causes difficulty in sleeping, but improves during the day. This started about a week ago, unable to sleep at night because of excessive roughness and irritation in the throat.

Maybe due to acid reflux....try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Avoid stress,consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..take over pantaprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above for 15 days....consult physician if symptoms persists
