Hi, I've now got the same ailment as a lot of you here. Ive not been to the Drs yet, going on Tuesday (or maybe tomorrow).. Don't really like the sound of these PPI's.. Kind of hoping it will go away on its own if I don't eat big portions and don't eat late at night..
On Sunday, I had a really big Roast Dinner meal, late on at night, then went to bed.. Idiotic I know.. I'm sure it even started after I was finishing off the Stuffing, I'd had the same big meal the Sunday before, which didn't help.. Then I got the lump in throat thing, I even tried sticking my finger down to see if it was trapped food or something.. The only time, I've ever felt anything like this was when I used Marijuana with my ex, I once could feel food actually moving down my gullet.. This feels similar to that..
I used to get Heartburn in my late teens, I lived on an unhealthy diet of Egg and Chips because I was poor.. But I stopped eating Deep-Fried foods that much.. (I now eat Oven Chips and things that can be baked.) Sadly, I love Cheese, Chocolate, Onions, Meat.. But I can cut down on eating those things, especially reduce portion size and stop eating late at night.. And then laying down too soon..
I just started taking Fluoxetine about a month ago, I don't know if a side-effect of that is Acid Reflux.. But I also use Steroid Inhalers for Asthma and I've been trying to use the inhalers more because my Nurse told me too as I'm naughty and don't use them unless I need too.. Anyway, these things are anti-inflammatorys and for the past few days of using them a lot, my sinuses and nasal cavities have felt inflamed, like I'm allergic to them, this was before the gullet thing.. And kind of at the same time. Last night was horrendous as my Asthma was bad because it was cold, my nose was either stuffed or inflamed, I kept sneezing, and I had this blumming lump in the throat thing with the belching.. And a bit of acid reflux but not much.. I could hardly breathe and Ive found myself yawning a lot, even though I'm not really tired.. I managed to get to sleep eventually and felt better in the morning though the lump is still there..
Could Asthma inhalers have helped to cause this in some way?
