    Iv read many forums on these symptoms and many have the same as you and they have been diagnosed with acid reflux as I have. But I have the sikent. Look up globus. It too is a feeling of lump in throat. Iv had that roo. To the point it actually felt at times like someone was strangling me. I find stress mostly causes it..acid also can irritate throat when eating spicy foods causing lump to appear more prevalent..breathing excercises helped me as well..I had globus for about 6 months and then whn I made myself relax and not worry as bad ovr health issues, it went away..hoping u find answers and can stress less..take care

    Consult a gastroenterologist. My GERD symtoms started with sinus pain, mucous in throat with the occasional heartburn. When I went to the ENT she claimed I had a sinus infection and put me on a antibiotic course and there was no improvement at all. I went to a gastroenterologist who diagnosed me with GERD due to lax cardia with no sign of any infection.

    Hi Jennifer

    Unfortunately Acid Reflux can be the cause of your mentioned symptoms, I have suffered now for nearly 3 years but slowly over this time I am able to control the worse of it. I do this by trying not to eat trigger foods, no coffee and very little alcahol. Anxiety is also bad for this so do try and relax (easier said than done sometimes. I also take 2 PPI's each day which I find beneficial. Hopefully you will find your own way of living with this.

    All the best to you

      Yeah I have really bad anxiety only brought in recently though,, it’s crazy how your body reacts I’m really hoping it is just acid reflux then I can learn how to deal with it, it’s just been very scary like today my back is burning with the pain. And the headaches are unreal hopefully get more answers next week I have given coffee up and not a drinker so will keep looking at what’s best to help thank you
