On Sunday I was working at the computer and had terrible acid. The burning pain was awful. I've had these "attacks" in the past, usually after too much alcohol. If I burped I could taste the acid.
After the acid went away I was left with a lump feeling in the right side of my throat. It almost feels like the lump you feel with swollen glands except the feeling is coming from under my Adam's apple.
When I swollow I feel the lump feeling and then a very small dull ache. If I turn my head to the left and swallow it's more noticable. If I put my head down to my chest and swollow there's no feeling.
Coughing, sneezing and breathing in deep also causes the feeling to appear. Burping does too, except the feeling comes after I burp. Almost feels as if gas goes back down again.
I'm not sure if it's muscular or not. I prod around the area on my neck all day and can't feel any lumps or bumps. Nothing swollen. If I push on my eusophegus under my Adam's apple I feel some discomfort. I also did some exercise Saturday that would affect that area (pullups, pressups, and shoulder shurgs with a 40kg kettle ball).
I have no issues eating food and it doesn't cause any discomfort when eating. I drink a couple of beers of a night, and have done for a long time. I should stop doing that.
Anyone got any insight into this? Have you had the same problem in the past?
Is it even possible for acid to cause these issues?
Got appointment in 2 weeks with my doctor.
