Hi I've been suffering with globus ( lump on throat feeling) since January . I had an endoscopy and it showed no inflammation or any other problems so my consultant just told me to take over the counter medication when needed. This is the problem I don't burp anything up so is it reflux. My doctor is a bit at a loss . We have tried nasal spray incase it was post nasal drip, gaviscon normal and advanced incase it was relux . Throat swab for infection , thyroid test and lastly now I am off to see ENT for checks for LPR... Would I know if I had reflux . I've heard about silent reflux so I've raised my bed up, don't wat after 7 ( go to bed about 11) I take gaviscon before I go to bed to be on the safe side but nothing works . I don't eat fatty or processed food, don't drink or smoke so I have no idea what it is. I am waiting for a peptest saliva test to arrive so I can check to see if there is any pepcin in my saliva . Anyone any tips or ideas?
