Hi. About 1 1/2 years ago I had very similar symptoms. pain when I swallowed on the left side which involved the ear too. I could drink and Icy type treat drink and it would feel better. My GP treated me for ear infections 3 times antibiotics and said I had wax and flushed my ear. None of that helped. The throat thing continued so I went to an ENT and had the scope thing through my nose. He said everything looked fine just that side was a little bit irritated. He told me to take omeprazole for about 3 months and try not to think about it too much and come back if it wasnt better. Well I only took the medicine for a couple of weeks and decided to cut the acidic foods out instead. It did get better. It is back. Mostly just my left side throat whenever I swallow. Sometimes it feels like a strained muscular like pain. Sometimes it is higher or lower in my throat. I was going through a lot of stress last week before it started. I dont know if that is related or not. If I put a little pressure on that side of my neck when I swallow it wont hurt. It does not hurt to push on it. I know that my neck and shoulders are pretty tense probably from worrying that its something bad. Anybody else notice this with the reflux? I do sleep on my left side. should I be considering post nasal drip?
