I have GERD and a sliding hiatal hernia and anytime I lie down and put pressure on my upper back, sides, or chest, pretty much my rib cage, I get this strange sensation like there's a golf ball stuck in my throat right below my adam's apple. It even happens when I'm sitting in the car with my back against the seat. It feels like something is stuck in my throat and there's something putting pressure in or around my esophagus and upper back. I can breathe just fine and I don't have trouble swallowing. I had an upper endoscopy in December and everything checked out fine. I think it's the sliding hernia that's putting pressure on my thoracic cavity. Does anyone else have this and have any way to relieve it? It makes it impossible for me to sleep because it's so uncomfortable.
