For the past 4 weeks I've been having this issue where it feels as though something is stuck in my esophogues and when breathing I get a burning sensation in my throat. I have been taking omaprazel every day but it's like some days it's good and some days it's terrible. Does this sound right to anyone? I don't have problems eating or drinking. I need advice.

    At first for me it was like that but I also felt discomfort in my stomach mostly the top of my stomach. If it gets worse when you lay down then it's possible. But it would be best to go see a gastro doc especially if you notice it gets worse. There were times where I did feel like food was stuck in my throat I would drink water and nothing it still felt like something was there.

    Hi Amanda,

    Yes it is GERD symptoms. you might be having bowel issues as well. 

    This is due to indigestion & acid forming in your stomach. Since the acid did not have any passage to go out it is coming back through the one way pipe, which makes burning / lump like issue in esophogues. Since you have the feeling is just for 4 weeks, it will not any issue and you will not find anything in endoscopy. So it is not required at this time.

    To get rid of this, you got to follow diet with easy digestable food & digestive enzymes especially dinner & bf. Dinner & sleeping time should be atleast 1-2hr gap present. Avoid dairy food for some period.

    Hope this helps
