It sounds like one of two things.. Either your throat hasn't had enough time to heal from your gerd (i am assuming you are on meds for this?) and is still sensitive.. Or your body may not like one of the ingredients in the shake. I wouldn't think it would aggravate the reflux unless like I said, one of the ingredients doesn't sit well with you.

Sore Throat with Whey Protein
Yes, I myself am experiencing sore throat with whey protein.

What I have found is eating whey protein powder alone makes condition worse than having it mixed with a drink or food. But it does still irritates the throat, to a lesser extent though.

Would be trying gargling after having whey shake hope that reduces or removes any irritation caused by it.
