Hello again! Yes rflux commonly causes hoaseness. This is due to high reflux of stomach contents and this irritates the vocal cords. Try waiting one hour after eating before you lie down and it would also help to elevate the head of the bed with blocks 4 to 6 inches o under the head side bedposts. I hope this is helpful for you!! Best Regards! Anthony Bray MD

Thanks - how long does the GI cocktail work. I took it about four hours ago - symptoms are slowly coming back but not bad. So to confirm, you don't think I need a D Dimer test?

Hi9 again, A GI cocktail may help for maybe 30 minutes to a couple hours.... NO you do not need a D-dimer test! Take care! Anthony Bray MD
