Hi. Have you tried alkaline water? Try finding one that has a pH of at least 8 which denatures the pepsin in your esophagus. I bought a pitcher online which has a filter so I can create my own alkaline water.
As you might know, the burning/pain you're experiencing in your throat is from acid and pepsin being refluxed there. They are both normal and necessary in your stomach, but a disaster in the esophagus. As you consume food or drink which has acid, the pepsin which normally breaks down food in the stomach, but is now in your throat, is activated and causes the problem. Essentially, it thinks your esophagus is food so starts munching on healthy esophageal tissue.
It's not a perfect solution. But I've found that alkaline water helps clear at least some of the pepsin.
Cheers and here's hoping you will feel better.
