Lump in throat reflux

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat reflux


Avatar n tn After the bout with the vomiting I went to bed and woke up the next day with the muscles in my ribs sore from heaving. Then the following day (24 hours post vomiting) I had this sensation of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>. There is no physical lump that can be palpated, but it feels as if something is stuck there. Its incredibly uncomfortable, but I've noticed that it fluctuates in severity of discomfort (although it hasn't gone away completely at any time).

Avatar n tn If you are having problems with acid reflux, the sensation could be globus. It's a 'feeling' of something <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> - like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span>. If this is the reason, you need to work with your doc to try to bring the reflux under control.

Avatar f tn Seeing an ENT who thinks I have acid reflux. One month ago I started this feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> as if something is stuck Can't lay down it gets worse Have no heartburn The only other symptons are my chest feels like I'm haveing a heartattack and my middle back hurts. Going for a barrium swallow this week Has anyone with thryoid have these symptons of acid reflux.
Avatar f tn I have has a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> sensation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> for 2 months now. This came with a sudden onset. Doctor says it could be anxiety related seeng that I have severe anxiety or some problems that come along wit reflux. I have been prescribed adivan for my anxiety but as well im too scared to take it. The only relief i have is wen i first wake up. The minute i eat or ecome stressed the feeling returns. To describe this, it is a feeling like your throat is real tight or may have been karate chopped.
1265027 tn?1284843551 A few months ago I was having alot of stress and kept feeling like there was a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>. Felt like there was something <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> and wouldnt leave. Also felt tight as if i was being choked. about 7 weeks ago i went to the ENT for lymph node issues. He did a rhinoscope (stuck the camera up my nose) and told me i had large tonsils and adenoids. He did an ultrasound of my throat and neck as well. He also did blood. Everything came back normal. the sensation in my throat went away.
Avatar n tn onto this page. The globus feeling (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> 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.
Avatar f tn For about 4 years now, I've had this weird <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>. 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?
Avatar n tn I can eat and drink just fine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> fact it seems to ease the pain I feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> when I do. Everyday though, I have this constant feeling of something in the back of my throat/neck - it can almost get to the point I feel like there is air constantly building up-when I burp it does ease it a little. I have tried the aciphex, OTC Prilosec and Nexium, but have not had any relief whatsoever.

659419 tn?1224719187 Make sure you also don't eat anything or drink alcohol within 3 hours of bedtime. Most cases of a "lump" in the throat is from stomach reflux. If it doesn't improve after a few weeks to months, see your doctor.
Avatar n tn Which I knew I had reflux, I didn't need an ENT to tell me that, but the golf ball <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> was not from the reflux. It caused reflux because I would gag and carry on and try to cough it away. I think that just irritates it. But I believe you can run hot water over your neck and drink warm liquids and try to do some anti-inflammatory type things, like diet and extra salmon, etc. I hope I helped....
Avatar m tn For the past 2-3 days I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> that feels like I have something lodged in there, like I swallowed something to big and it will not go down. It is a rather irritating feeling. What could this be? What are some immediate treatment options? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Now after two months of having it, i can feel extreme pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my neck when I move it. It seems now like i swallowed a big ball and it is stuck in my throat. I can't eat from this sensation. Can it be just stress and it's all in my head? Did anyone experience this before? If so, what did you do to relieve it?
Avatar n tn 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. Most voice and swallowing centers tell something about this as it is such a classical symptom of laryngopharyngeal reflux.
Avatar n tn She is on Thyroxine but constantly complains of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> she trys to clear her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> all the time . I'm worried because she also gags when eating and feels that sometimes that she can't breath. I was wondering what are her options and would having the thyroid gland out be a option, she is only ten and its really affecting her quality of life ... Please any advice would be great as i'm really worried !!
Avatar n tn My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> feels like theres a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> it. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> rises and makes me struggle to breath. Resulting in me coughing until the lump goes back down. Sometimes it'll stay down but others it'll come back up. Any ideas what it is ?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I recently had the same problem. At first, I thought maybe the lump was from congestion caused by my office building being very humid, so I began taking 1/2 doses of Benedryl during the day. One evening (on my birthday) I was driving down the highway and suddenly the lump felt like it was obstructing my airway & I couldn't breath. I happened to be near a hospital & went to the ER.
Avatar f tn HR would spike in 200s, elevated BP, SOB, chest pain, tightness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> chest and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>, heavy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>, flushing, weakness, tingling and numbness in legs and arms...pratcially every known SVT symptom all at once. EP doctor diagnosed it as left atrial tachy. I am 6 weeks post ablation and feel much better. Ablation seems to be succesfful but dr said there were a few more spots that could give me trouble later down the road.
Avatar f tn I finished those off and lost my voice completely and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span> never changed. So they then put me on Amoxicillin 500mg three times a day. I finished those off, the lump is still there. They sent me for blood work. I apparently have anemia. So they sent me for another set to see if I was allergic to any foods or what not for the anemia. The doctor I am seeing is sending me to do a Barium Swallow. Other then that they won't be back until the 5th of January.
Avatar m tn I found out by myself, thru a lot of research, that I have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR). It makes sense to me but . . . The chosen medication from doctors are antiacids (at least one year treatment). We are lucky if we are in the 20% of success otherwise, if it did not go away, the problem gets worse. Believe me it is hell to have that mucous accumulation in the back of the throat. I never had LPR symptoms before three months ago. Now I have slight heartburns and dry mouth.
Avatar n tn I have been checked for barretts and do not have. I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> sensation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span></span>, 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. I have had all types of test done, with no result. I know this lump is real, but I feel like no one can understand and no answers.
