For the past 3 months I've been having this pain in throat whenever I lean over, bend, sit leaning forward, do sit ups, or position my body in anyway that pushes my belly fat upward. Pain is also followed by a feelingh of lump in throat and tinnitus (buzzing in ears), in addition to voice hoarseness, all symptoms which resolve with few hours.

I've had Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux) since I was about 14, now 31 (male). I tried having an endoscopy but couldn't complete it due to gagging.

Anyone have any ideas what this might be?

    Hi Sam, sounds like LPR to me. Obviously, try not to do those behaviors that you describe. Wear loose fitting clothing and eat small meals. I believe once your esophagues is injured it's compromised. Although, the correct lifestyle can make it healthy again it can quickly become problematic. It might be a nerve that triggers sympotoms you describe. So even though the gastric juices are not flowing all the way up it does not have to. This is just my opinion.

      Yes, this all started ever since I picked up some bad habits, such as cutting down exercise and eating junk and snacks. Had stopped all that and I am feeling better. Oatmeal seems to be a healthy meal for LPR and GERD patients.

    Hi Sam - aggree with ABC it sure sounds like LPR. Only way to find out for sure is go and have an endoscopy with a GI or a throat scope with an ENT specialist. The good news is that its not as bad as full blown GORD.
