Hello, I really hope some people can give me their symptoms with this, I have had constant phelm in throat for too many months now, had occassional sore throats but no flu or cold symptoms, I get the lump in throat sensation now and then, I have been burping a lot, and sometime feel like I have to force a burpe to feel slightly better, some burning in somach, burning upper back, gas in stomach, grumbling and gurgling sounds, chest burning again only on occassions, constant swollowing, can eat fine, but have days of feeling full after a few bites of food and eating anymore would most likely throw it up, I do have a lot of loose stools as well but I do have ulcerative colitis for 10 years so could be that, any help would be great, if anyone else suffers these symptoms x

    Hi Dee

    have similar issues.  Flem in throat. Grumbling and gurgling in stomache.  Burping a lot.  Appetite not so great.  I do eat but nothing tastes great.  I don't know if it's the mucous that is causing this.  I think maybe I have sinus issues but not 100 percent sure. Also a feeling of being off balance.  Have you been to your dr or had any tests done?

    Dee, i suffered reflux for about 14 years, the lump in the throat is one of the symptoms along with chest pain. I wrote a post a while back entitled, "How I kicked Reflux and GERD after 14 years on and off". If you go to my profile, you should be able to find that post. It describes some your symptoms and how i kicked them. Let me know if you can't find it and i will post it here for you.

    Hope you get it all figured out.

    Hi I know what you feel since I have the same symptoms. I have been suffering with acid reflux for almost a year and sometimes i used to feel like a lump in my right throat. The last 3 months i've been feeling the lump in my throat almost all the time while feeling nauseous which made me eat less food although I would be hungry, but due to my nausea probably I would become worse.

    I'm having a barium test to check the osephagus and the stomach.

    I know the feeling its really frustrating sad

    All my life (until I was 60) I suffered from all the symptoms of Extra-oesophageal reflux. You may read a short synopsis in Appendix 4 of the Down With Acid book or on the website by following the link in "About this site".
