Can GERD turn into LPR?

In early Jan, I started burping after eating or drinking anything and getting abdominal pains and bad heartburn. My GP put me on 2 x 20mg Omeprazole per day, which did help but made me very dizzy. I tried for a while on 1 x 20mg Omeprazole but was even worse than before taking anything (rebound?).

So, I asked if I could try what I'd had a year or 2 ago (heartburn after taking antibiotics), and the GP said that I'd had Ranitidine previously, and I try could 2 x 150mg per day. It seems to be working quite well (maybe not quite as well as Omeprazole) but I get absolutely no side-effects, which is great.

But I've suddenly started getting a sore throat, hoarseness and a feeling of a lump in my throat, all of which come and go. I went back to the GP and they think it's some kind of infection because they saw some white marks in my mouth, and have given me an antifungal, but it hasn't done much so far. I'm wondering if it call be LPR, but why would I get LPR on Ranitine when I wasn't getting it to start with, or while I was on Omeprazole?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
