Hey smile (please excuse my english because im not native speaker) I've been having this trouble for three weeks now. It all started with feeling like something is in my thoat, that feeling passed after 3-4 days, but then i started to burp like a lot and a little difficluty with swallowing mostly my own saliva, that two symptoms are present throughout the all three weeks. I can eat everything normal maybe skmetimes a little harder too pass the food, i have on and off sore throat and sometimes caugh up white mucus. I've had a heaetburn for a while but it passed with medicines i got from specialisr. I've been drinking them for 2 days and i know it canr get better with just a few pilla I am very worried that it is something else besides esophagitis. So guys please help me ease up my mind cuz I dont feel tired, I have regulaer stool, i have been expiriencing pain in chest for a few days and sometikws stomach making sounds and gasses, also i feel hungry noemaly. Thank you smile

      Well i hope that it will pass with this medicine, because i have 20 pills and just drank 4, but its really annoying right? I mean I am always thinking of something worse because its not getting better but then I understand that its not getting worse either atleast for now. If my symptoms get better I will let you know  smile

    What you describe sounds like reflux.

    You can take care of acid with pills but reflux needs lifestyle changes and can still cause damage even if it's no longer acidic.

    See the section on reflux in the www DownWithAcid org uk book / website for a full description and management techniques.

      Will definitely try that, also i am a very fast eater and dont chew food too much, and very nervous person so I guess that has to be changed also, Thank you so much!

      Hi, i have been suffering from a lump in the throat feeling for months now, a consultant has checked my throat and give me medication which didnt work so i am trying to find ways of dealing with it myself.

      ​Both the lump in throat feeling and reflux can be caused by anxiety

    I noticed when I drink hot tea the throat felling will get better but everyone is different, the tea flavour is ( Settling Ginger ) the ingredients are ginger root liquorice root , cinnamon , cloves

    Try it

    Put honey instead of sugar
