      I have @ pratik2003 I've been to two different ENT doctors and they say its most likely acid reflux. I'll take my medication to treat the infection in my throat then I've been taking OTC Nexium and it seems like the Nexium is not working. One of the ENT doctors said I have inflammation in my throat but, did not see any ulcers. He said take the Nexium for2-3 months and if im still having problems to come back in for food allergy testing. If that is not the issue then I most likley need to remove my tonsils. I also have on the right side of my throat have redness and like little bumps and I don't know what it is? I went to the doctor and It's not strep. It's just some red bumps that hurt. image

      @Gillian1956 thank you! I feel that I need to run multiple test in my stomach region to make sure stomach is working properly. Because I have never had acid reflux this bad in my entire life. I'm just concerned that it might be something more serious.
