I get heartburn off and on, but it always goes away. this last time started with a head cold, ear
ache.for a few days. then the pain
went away. but I was still getting the runny nose and blowing it alot. Now---this may sound crazy,,but after i was blowing my nose the one day I noticed a lump in my throat--it felt like a big burp--bubble deep in throat---I brushed it aside bec ause it went away. then later that day while sipping coffee, I got in again, and the panic set in..
