You're right to question the silent GERD diagnosis because it could be something else and the medications prescribed have side effects you may not like. My hoarse voice and constant cough were the result of a hiatal hernia that I needed to have fixed. My doctor made sure I got the right tests to make sure my diagnosis was correct. I didn't experience brain fog with my situation so I can't speak to that.
