Hypersensitive Gullet. Anyone been diagnosed with this?

Edited , 2 users are following.

Hi, folks. Has anyone been formally diagnosed with hypersensitive gullet as opposed to acid reflux? If so, what were your symptoms and how do you cope day to day - what medications do you take, diet etc. Many thanks.

    Hi Jeanne, I'm from the U.S. so I don't know if terms are different. I had an exceptionally raw throat, (it felt like it was on fire) for a while and I was diagnosed with silent reflux / laryngopharyngeal reflux. What helped me stop the burning in my throat was over the counter - NAC - which stands for nac acetyl cysteine. My husband recently had globus sensation and I had him take NAC after about a week or two his globus is gone. A diet based on alkaline food is very important. Take NAC with food. I read Dr. Jonathan Aviv's book and follow his diet. (His board certified and works at a highly reputable hospital in NYC.)
