I am getting very uncomfortable excessive air in my esophagus. It feels like I have a lump in my throat and cant swallow easily. I can also feel air in my throat area and cannot belch to get rid of it. It feels like very uncomfortable pressure in the throat area. I also get a little naseaus the longer it is trapped inside my throat. I belch, which helps, but I cannot get the air out of my esophagus. It makes me feel like I cant breath very well.

I sure wish I could help you. I not only have spasms, I have constant "lump sensation" in my throat for over a yr now and pain in my esophagus and now since spring have great difficultly breathing, actually "catching my breath". I've been to lung dr, heart dr and GI drs, all on several occasion. Last week they stretched my esophagus and hoped that would help but nothing! I have tried so many meds, no help!
My pharmacist suggested one Prevacid and 2 Prilosec a day to help. I still have sore throats, feeling as though there is a lump of bread stuck in my throat, and a general ill feeling all the time. I have raised my bed up 6 inches, use a good pillow, have eliminated fats and sugar from my diet ( I have lost 27 pounds because of this disease) and I just don't understand why I still feel so awful! It's causing a lot of depression and anxiety for me.
Now, however, even though I'm taking Omeprazole, I am getting the stabbing pains in the xiphoid area (right in the middle, where the crease between chest and stomach is) and food very often hurts on its way down. Also, after say a pint of water, my throat feels very cold and when I burp, the water is coming back up into my mouth. A while after eating/drinking, I get a glugging type noise coming from my stomach/esophagus and up into my throat - it sounds like a tap dripping.
I am currently aged 30, male, Asian, non-smoker and have been suffering from constant burping and bloating since 2007. I have had two upper endoscopies; once in Nov'08 and the 2nd a few weeks ago - Mar'12. A few days ago the biopsy result from the 2nd endoscopy came back with the following: "Oesophagus: Sections show squamo-columnar junction, including columnar mucosa of gastric cardiac and fundic types.

I to feel like there is a lump in my throat and that I have mucus all the time down by the esophagus. My doctors keep giving me something for sinus, even though I tell them that it feels like a lump in my throat. If I lay flat, there is a wheezing sound, I have had x rays of my chest and they are fine. I feel like I have to clear my throat all the time. What can I do. He put me on a nasal spray fluticasone.
My question I am hoping to get help with is I have had for over a year a feeling like I have a lump in my throat, I had my last endoscope back in the summer of 2009 and was told I should have one every 3-6 months. That seemed a lot to me so nonethe less I put off many. Now besides the "froggy" feeling as I call it I am having pain when swallowing, talking, etc...
did you find out what was wrong with you? I have the same symptons.
For about 4 years now, I've had this weird lump in my throat. It's not there all the time but I notice it mostly at night. It feels like I have to keep swallowing my saliva. It keeps me awake and I'm really worried that I have cancer in my esophagus. I rarely get heart burn and it's the only symptom that I have. Is it possible that I have Barrett's esophagus?
i still can't play piano or drums for very long no matter what i do. recently i've had the feeling of a lump in my throat, which i've been sure has been connected to neck pain. no doctor would believe me, but my physician was going over old notes and thinks that it might be connected to the venous plexus; maybe the problem has grown. i'm confused, though.
onto this page. The globus feeling (lump in throat feeling) usually goes away, when the LPR type of reflux is controlled. Follow the link below to Dr. James A. Koufman's PATIENT INFORMATION SHEET ON REFLUX, also! And read Dr. Murray's book, if you can find it. I apologize in advance for the lengthiness of this post. **************************************** GER=Gastro-Esophageal Reflux. (Gastro=stomach. Esophagus=food tube.) LPR= Laryngeal-Pharyngeal Reflux.
Hi, It could be due to injury to the inner lining of esophagus that is causing pain. The lump in the throat feeling is one of the symptoms of acid reflux though no lump is actually found in the throat. since you have difficult in swallowing, I would suggest that you undergo upper GI endoscopy to rule out any organic cause of difficulty in swallowing.
I have feelings of sore throat, tightening in my esophagus, lump in throat. I am eating no spices, fried foods, milk or milk products, chocolates, caffeine etc. I have lost so much weight. It seems everything I eat causes these symptoms to begin within minutes of eating anything. I am taking 8 -10 Tums Ultras daily. They wanted me to take Nexium for the acid, but didn't like what I've read about the side effects.
I have developed a large lump in my throat right behind my tongue, but where my right tonsil is. This lump is about the size of a ping-pong ball and makes it very hard for me to swallow and breath and makes my voice sound funny. I have a doctor's appointment but they couldn't see me for a month. Any ideas what it my be? It doesn't hurt, it's hard, it's red and it is only uncomfortable because of the breathing thing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I have been checked for barretts and do not have. I have a lump sensation in my throat, have been to tow doctors the second doc. for 2nd opinion. He did find 2 ulcers, but no answer about lump in throat. The first doc. told me I might have anxiety, or stress and put me on clonopin, I have been on clonopin for two years.

Hello.... I am a 17 year old girl and i have been suffering from a lump in the throat for two months now.First it was not painful at all but it was annoying. I was worried and checked with a doctor. He told me it is a viral infection and gave me medication. This didn't relieve me at all. After that, I could feel the lump getting larger every day. I can't stop thinking about it. Now after two months of having it, i can feel extreme pain in my throat and in my neck when I move it.
I had a question i seen an ENT about two weeks ago he scoped my nose and seen nothing with my sinuses n he prescribed me clonazapem for 6 days to see if its anxiey and it didnt seem to help he didnt test me for acid reflex yet but i told him my main concern was the lump in my throat which won't go away and it gets me upset thinking it could be serious it's like mucus that just won't come up and it gets worse about bedtime and it's been like this for three months.
your lump in the throat is probably harmless "globus pharyngeus", in other words, your cricopaharyngeal muscle in your throat is just too tight. Two major reasons for this are reflux and increased stress (and why not both!). More information e.g. homepage.mac.com/changcy/globus.htm. Most voice and swallowing centers tell something about this as it is such a classical symptom of laryngopharyngeal reflux.
First of all, I am a 16 year old female with no serious medical conditions (besides childhood asthma and multiple ear infections but it's been years since that), average weight and all in all, pretty healthy. For the past, hmm, year and a half now, I've been feeling like there is a giant lump in my throat. It gets worse when I drink milk or have dairy products (i.e. yogurt) and at night.
I just want relief and to be pointed in the right direction on how to get back a normal feeling in my throat. If there was a problem in my esophagus would the ENT have seen that as well?

HR would spike in 200s, elevated BP, SOB, chest pain, tightness in chest and throat, heavy lump in throat, flushing, weakness, tingling and numbness in legs and arms...pratcially every known SVT symptom all at once.

I'm 53 and in good health except for hypothyroidism and about 30lbs overweight. I have had this feeling of something stuck in my throat for months. I have had a few tests, such as a thyroid scan and swallowing study. Also, most recently a bronchoscopy. One of the tests showed a zenkers diverticulum but the GI dr says its too small to be causing any problems...the bronchoscopy showed Barretts esophogous and a biopsy was taken. GI Dr.
I have been experiencing a sensation of a lump in the throat or tightness/pressure in my upper chest in combination with a pain in my back/spine at the same level of the feeling in my chest. This feeling has persisted for about 4 weeks. I don't seem to have diificulty breathing, although I do feel the sensation more when I breathe deeply. Could this be a respiratory problem? Does this sound like anything you've heard of?
