Early Symptoms

Background info: 37 years old, been dealing with GERD for about 15 years, i've managed it with OTC or prescription drugs.

For the past 2-3 months, I always wake up with a sore throat, whether it's in the morning or from a nap. The main symptom that has been stressing me out is the constant clearing of throat that i have to do, I thought I read this could be an early symptom. No issues swallowing food or liquids, just the clearing of throat. Sometimes if I clear my throat hard enough, phlegm will come up. Initially my GI said this is nothing to worry about, but now all of a sudden he wants to do an endoscopy. Has anyone experienced this?

Mine was finally found when I was unable to swallow even water - (I was 32 at the time and am 41 at this stage) - there is no point in speculating - get the scope and then see, if nothing else you will be kept an eye on.
