Acid reflux damaged my voice, help!

Hey guys, I’ve just subscribed to this forum and I hope you can help me with this issue. During my life i?ve had acid reflux (LPR) twice. The first time was the last January but because I wasn’t a singer yet I just ignored it and i used to cough really hard after eating. Then i took a medicine and it went away. When i started KTVA in July i noticed that there was something strange in my voice: my headvoice is 100% ok but my chest voice is strange. When I sing for example the LAH vowel sometimes when i sustain the note a sort of vocal fry (which i never used) comes out instead of a clean sound and this thing goes worse when i try to sing my lowest notes. When the reflux came back in July I red the book from Dr. Fuhrman that Ken suggests and i compleately changed my diet but the “fry” is still there. So here is the question: what should i do? Could you please suggest me exercises or other stuff to do? Because right now and I don’t have any idea of what I should do: if rest for 3-4 days or keep doing the course or what. I’m sorry for the long post but this is getting frustrating and you guys are my last hope.
I also have acid reflux coupled with post nasal drip. I just stay away from the foods that I know will set it off. Tomatos, green peppers, etc........so if you know what foods effect you that way, stay away from it.
There are diets, medication (both prescribed, and over the counter) that are available.
Someone else here may have more, and better information than what I mentioned so until you get your student confirmation keep checking back for a different answer.
