I already posted a thread here, but lately I've been having GERD symptoms AND some symptoms that apparently are common for LPR including:

- The feeling that something is stuck in the back of my throat
- The sensation of postnasal drip even when my nose/sinuses are dry
- Hoarseness and needing to clear my throat often
- A persistent tickly feeling right in the center of my throat
- A nasty, metallic taste in the back of my throat or sometimes after I eat

Could this be LPR? I'm really scared. I'm a music major and singing is very important for me. I can't risk harm to my larynx. What should I do? Do I need to see a GI specialist? Will they need to do an endoscopy?

Silly - Go to an ENT first, then make an appointment with a GI doctor.  The ENT can look at your vocal cords and folds and see inflammation.

At the top of our page there are resources that address LPR and sx. I will post the link here for you.
General rule of thumb, an ENT Physician is usually the better choice if your looking at LPR  because you need a laryngoscope for the larynx and pharynx.
