Hi all, ok, here is what's happened...

Ate chili (spicy) yesterday..
Last night...had burning in the throat like
woke up today..Voice very hoarse, hurts to cough but doesn't hurt to swallow. Hurts more in the chest when I cough. breathing is tight (have asthma)

Does this sound like acid reflux? We don't have insurance for another 90 days so if it is, what can I take or do to make it better? Almost feels like it burns when I exhale.

Thanks for all who reply!!

Go to the store and get some OTC prilosec. Also, keep drinking lots of water, it will help neutralize the acid.
