    I also have sore throat on the right side and burning chest on right side, and like you medication does not work and I have been diagnose as LPR REFLUX by ent. I think the reason why acid tablets don't fully work is because we not only refluxing  acid but other digestive enzymes, bile,pepsin.  Have you tried gaviscon advance.

      The reason your  voice box is burnt is because the reflux of digestive enzymes (acid, bile, pepsin is passing your upper sphincter . Its a  mechanical dysfunction of the upper esophageal sphincter.  Have you tried changing your diet.  Not eating three hours before bed, low fat food , no fizzy drinks,tea,spicy and citrus. I try to control my symptoms with diet which is hard but has to be done. Before i go to bed I always have gaviscon advance tablets.

      I,ve been seen by ENT and had camera down my throat and I have had gastroscopy to have a test for h. pylori which I am awaiting results.

      Have you had gastroscopy? If not that might be next step.
