I'm new to the group and have been experiencing acid reflux for a while now,but recently have started to experience the feeling of a lump at the back of my throat and sometimes in my chest.

I have been taking Omaprazole on and off,but have now bought some nexium to try that.

I havn't been to my doctor yet,as I'm really scared of the outcome.Could anyone advise please.

    First of all , Nexium is the same stuff like the - prazole’s , they are all Ppi’s , proton pump inhibitors . Very dangerous stuff , doesn’t cure anything and will bring a whole host of problems with regular use . There are some natural ways of dealing with reflux , apple cider vinegar , good probiotics , eating your last meal of the day hours before sleep . What really helped me most is switching to a Ketogenic diet

    I have this feeling on and off, especially when I swallow saliva. I keep reading that its very common when you’re anxious.  I noticed that when I’m worried about my health, i feel it more.

    That’s definitely reflux causing that. 

    What helped with my reflux was taking PPI’s along with changing my diet drastically. 

    I will be weaning off the PPI’s because long term they’re dangerous, but for a month they shouldn’t do harm.
