Lump in throat hiatal hernia

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat hiatal hernia


Avatar n tn The weird thing is that in traditional Asian or European cultures hiatal hernia occurs in less than 1%. In the US we see a figure anywhere from 10% all the way up to 80% of adults. We know it is about 60% of adults over 50 that have one. Out of everyone that has one about 50% of them show no symptoms at all. The other 50% have symptoms that vary widely though that is expected as digestion and nutrient disruption has the potential of that.
Avatar n tn I still burp a lot which I guess means I still have a lot of gas built up in my stomach. You mentioned the lump in the throat feeling as well. For me this is almost a pre cursor type feeling for when my PVC's are gonna act up. I'm not sure why this would cause that weird sensation in my throat.
Avatar f tn Most of the time I have the sensation of a lump in my throat and tightening. This is very scary as I have asthma as well(not the issue now). My otalangologist recommended that I begin Nexium/Prevacid and see a psychiatrist. I also have been prescribed Valium. But the other concern is after I eat I experience heart skipped beats/flutters which seem to be alleviated after I burp. But the PVCs are very scary/annoying.
Avatar f tn From what I have been reading on the internet a lot of my symptoms can be related to either a heart attack or hiatal hernia. I believe my hiatal hernia is pressing on my vagus nerve which is causing my problems. I have this constant feeling of something being stuck in my throat, abdominal pain, chest pressure, jaw pain, and left arm pain. I am at a loss right now, does anyone have any input of this?
Avatar n tn Don't lie down after a meal and don't eat right before you go to bed. As for the lump in your throat,I just had the same feeling the other day and when I went to my chiropractor for an adjustment he massaged my "cardiac sphincter" which is located at the top of my stomach.He said that it had been spasming closed and that is why my food wouldn't go down.I had recently gone off the Nexium with my doctors help trying to use more natural methods.
Avatar n tn stretched it. That really helped the lump in throat feeling but not the terrible upper abdomin pain. It feels like contractions or something. I'd rate it a 12 on 1-10 scale! I can't sit still, have to walk the floor when it hurts. Went to ER with same symptoms 8/07 and ended up removing my GB 9/07. It had sludge,stones, and was diseased. I thought great the pain will be gone. Guess what, not a week later- same pain!!!
Avatar n tn Had two scopes done, first found an insignificant hiatal hernia, second found nothing at all. For the past month I feel as though there is a lump in my throat. I get up in the moring feeling fine, within an hour the lump is there, it usually last until early afternoon. By the time I go to bed it is gone. I have been sleeping fine and not walking up with a sore throat, etc. I do not burp after eating or have heartburn or chest pains.....any idea of the cause of this lump?
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have had this "lump in throat" feeling for more than 3 years now and eventually had an ENT Specialist that diagnosed it: chricopharengeal muscle thickening due to severe longstanding GERD. My medical history is complicated and the Chrico muscle problem not very common. I had a hypotensive LES and that was fixed by Nissen Fundo on the 8th of Feb 2012. As "Flycaster" suggested you should get an Endoscopy to check for Hiatus Hernia and GERD damage.
Avatar m tn I believe I got a Hiatal Hernia by smoking excessive amounts of weed when I had a sore throat, my symptoms where I had a very unconformable lump in the back of my throat and every time I ate any little thing I would burp. Because of these problems I stopped smoking weed for a good year.
Avatar m tn - Excruciating pain below my sternum, constant discomfort - Hard to catch my breath, have to take deep breaths often - Occasional sore throat - Feeling of food stuck at the bottom of my esophagus, sometimes feels like small pieces - If I lightly repeatedly exhale I hear and feel a slight clicking coming from the area - Pressing on the area sometimes provides me a few second of relief - Fullness after eating small amounts of food - Acid Reflux occasionally I've always been told GERD or Hiatal
Avatar n tn I also have had a hiatal hernia for many years and take nexium. Is the hernia and acid relux possibly a cause for this 'lump in the throat' feeling? What can be done besides taking an addictive med like xanax? Thanks for any advice!
Avatar f tn i noticed a lump in my throat about a month ago and it stuck around for about 2 weeks then it went away and a day ago it started again. it's only on my left side and it feels like some itchy small lump that won't go down. i keep swallowing but it's just stuck there. i do have acid reflux but it hasn't really done that before. any info will help.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn Have you ever taken a drink of milk in the morning only to have it lump up in your throat on the way down and be extremely painful? I only ask this because it is a reference point to the pain I was feeling at the time of the attack (no milk involved) and the best description I can think of.
Avatar n tn I do think my health has become better, I struggle more with my health now then I did before they first operated.I do still have a lump in my throat but as I understand this, this is due to stress (they went ahead with the op when I mentioned I had a lump in my throat).What is a bit upsetting is that I found out about a year after I had the procedure that I could not throw up ever again and I wish to correct that as that is one of your bodies natural reaction.
Avatar n tn I have severe GERD, Barretts Esophagaus and Hiatal Hernia. I have been on medication for my reflux which does help with reducing the acid but i regurgitate after every meal and still have some reflux problems.I have minor difficulty swallowing at times. Should i ask to have surgery for my condition?
Avatar n tn Hi. I have had a long standing problem with a feeling that I have a lump in my throat - choking sensation, like when you are holding back crying. I have always assumed it was anxiety/stress and have been prescribed xanax for when it is really bad. This becomes constant when I am stressed out. I very seldom take xanax because of the addiction proponent. I also have had a hiatal hernia for many years and take nexium. I have heard that acid reflux could also be a cause as well as my thyroid gland.
203342 tn?1328740807 I've had this constant lump in my throat feeling for days now. Nothing seems to relieve it. I actually tried to not eat yesterday except some tea, soup and crackers and it didn't go away. Could this be Acid Reflux? It's a horrible feeling! I feel like I've got a golf ball stuck in my throat! I can still eat but I did notice that I nearly chocked on my toast this morning. Maybe it was too dry.
Avatar n tn I can remember complaining about the lump sensation in my throat back then. I have had repeated endoscopies. They said I have a Hiatal Hernia/acid reflux.. And also my colonoscopy showed IBS/differticultis.. The last tests done 4 yrs. ago showed the same. They suspected Barret's but the pathology report showed negative to the Barrett's. I have been under so much stress. My husband is very ill/and I have a daughter who has disabilties. So I am under alot of stress.
Avatar f tn It feels like a pressure there like if you put a finger there and put pressure on the throat. I was told by the nurse this is from the hiatal hernia and it might get worse with pregnancy. Is this correct? I thought it was due to my allergies. I have felt this with post nasal drainage which usually will go away in a couple of days or resolves with swallowing or eating. This comes back after eating. If I don't have much food in my stomach, the feeling is not as intense. When eating, it is fine.
Avatar f tn Seriously thats the best way to describe it also ive been experiencing the globus thing but not just like a lump in throat more like a swelling of entire throat like theres extra skin tissue there or something...dontknow where this comes from I was told its just stress but even at my most rested it still feels like theres almost scar tissue in throat or something..My question is has anyone else experienced the uncomfortable throbbing perhaps where my hernia is?
Avatar m tn Years ago I developed a feeling of a lump in my throat. Lots of tests followed, all were clear. I couldnt get it out of my head that it was cancer or something drastic. Nothing made it go away, it was a nightmare, Eventually i had a scope of the throat etc done to confirm there was no issue. This re assured me and over the following week or two the feeling/sensation just went away. This may be your issue too. Its more of a stress/ anxiety issue than anything else.
Avatar m tn Had the lump in throat feeling for over 3 years. Just had galbladder out on oct 29, 2012 and the bothersome lump is gone. I had no galstones or serious attacks, just thought it was indigestion. Apparently I have had this galbladder problem for over 10 years and didn't realize what it was. First indication was from an ultrasound and next test was a HIDA scan. The hida showed a 27percent ejection rate of bile from the galbladder.
