Posted , 4 users are following.

I have have a lump sensation and tightness in my throat and I experience the gurgling sensation when I swallow water or saliva. And It feels like an air bubble or burp is stuck in my throat. But I can't burb I have to stick my fingers in my mouth to burb I been on nexium for 3 weeks thinking maybe is acid reflux but it doesn’t help with these symptoms.

I'm having an endoscopy next week, but I'm very nervous I can't even sleep.

    wait the results of your procedure. try not to stress. Could be LPR get a check by ENT if GASTO has no answers. IF its LPR, try acid watcher diet.

      My husband had a lump type feeling in his throat for yrs. He would constantly choke on food which caused major panic attacks. He was so afraid to get an endoscopy because his anxiety over choking. He finally went in because he could not stand choking and the lump in throat anymore. The endoscopy found nothing but a completely healthy throat, esophagus, and stomach. 90% of his symptoms went away after the endoscopy. It turns out it is a sensation people can experience when they are anxious. It very well could just be that.
