I have the same thing along with coughing fits. I think mine is caused by prescription meds
. (The cough is for sure).
I feel something abrasive/ticklish irritating my throat. This results in my trying to clear my throat repeatedly, (a reflex), with no success. A coughing fit follows. I have to sit up in bed when I start coughing, and my eyes tear up.
I too have wondered if it's possible for the acid to cause this unpleasant irritation.
