    You don't sound silly at all, I get the lump in my throat, the burning in my chest and Chest pain. Which feels like a heart attack and I have had to go to a&e to make sure on gp orders. Others have talked about shoulder pain on the site. It's an awful condition and not fun to live with. I have changed everything about my life, no tea, coffee, alcohol, fried foods, fatty foods and foods with high sugar and still I get problems.

    I take 5 different meds as well Losac, buscapan, gaviscan liqurice, colafac MR.

    After living with the condition for 4 years I am asking for a referral to specialist, if the waiting list is to big then I am asking the health society I'm in to get me a specialist.

      Your better than me.  I haven't given up everything completely yet.  I'm not sure I have that kind of will power.  I already feel like I don't overdue any specific food or drink so I don't understand quiting it all. Well, I do understand it but will it really help?  I wonder?  My ins. will not pay for a 2nd opinion but I'm thinking of appealing that decision.  Good luck!

      I got sick of feeling so awful that's why I started the diet. I didn't do it all in one go I started with giving up tea and coffee, then gradually gave up on other things I am not supposed to eat and drink. I love fruit but giving up all acid fruits was hard not that giving up my favourite lady gray tea was not so so hard.

      Sometimes even sticking with the diet and following all the rules taking the meds and still the acid attacks. All u can do is your best what else is there. I'm bloody minded which is what gets me through best of all it's ok to let it get to me now and again I'm human. But research it there are things they can do it's just getting the right specialist is the battle cuts to health care is all or biggest problems

    There's nothing silly about what your feeling.  Yes, it is normal to feel those kinds of pain with acid reflux.  You may even have the "silent reflux" that I do.  The lump in the throat is one of the symptoms of that.  But, I can tell by your message that you are really stressed out and aniexty can make your symptoms worse.  If you panic everytime your about to eat or after eating, it will make things worse.  You may need to see your doctor again an talk about what your experiencing.  You may need a different kind of medicine or stronger medicine.

    Just went to my G.I. Dr today. Thank the good Lord someone finally hearing me n gonna try n find out what's up. Yes, I have the lump n not being able to swallow certain foods n wheezing at night every since my Tonsillectomy surgery. I've heard about the shoulder pain like you described but that's one issue I don't have but my Dr did ask me if I had that shoulder pain also but my Dr is gonna start out with two different test. One is a swallow test n something they put down my mouth n check for how much acid n something else but I can't remember lol but Just thankful test are gonna start n hopefully I'll know something sooner or later. Hope you get in to see your Dr about your issues.
