feeling of a lump in my throat.
Hi, I am a 46 year old female. I have had all these symptoms and more. I also have MS. I do not like taking meds, as soon enough I will have to be on them for life. Can you imagine living to 86, that would be 40 years of putting chemicals into my body and does it really need them all the time. So for now I live in pain on a daily bases and just manage it. I have had a Specialist tell me all he had to do is stretch my throat and it would go away. I did this and now instead of feeling like having this one inch tub with a quater inch ball rolling up my tube, now it feels like a three inch tube with a four inch ball rolling up. Do not get this done for this. I have just excepted the fact that these are the symptoms of my High-Hadel Hernia. Please excuse the spelling. When it happens I just go with the flow?? as I know it wont kill me and it will pass.

Don't take anti inflams!
I don't know all that much about medicine and stumbled on this as reasearching a similar problem. I DO know that if you are having any form of gastric/acid reflux you should NOT be taking Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs, sometimes called NSAIDS without a PPI such as omeperazole.lazoperazole. An example of an NSAID is: Nurofen/Ibuprofen/Diclofanic/Advil.. a lot of you, logically, take this thiking it's anti inflammatory and will make the 'lump' feel better but it will most likely be making it a lot worse in the long term because, and I don't know why, but these can cause acid reflux. If you need to take these meds you MUST get them with a PPI....which has to be a prescription from your Doc!

Lump in throat
In most cases the lump in the throat is upper gastro disease, You are not alone... there are 1 out of every 3 people over the age of 30 suffer from this Gatroesophageal reflux disease is caused from an acidic body. If seeking a medical diagnosis over 85% of those who do never find answers to their situation. Simply Medical science continues to be primitive and blind to the real cause of this disease and in what to do to fix it. The many people who have tried prescription after prescription with no relief do not be alarmed... Many people never do. The only way of treating this disease is through natural methods. Good Luck Joel, Naturally Speaking Newsletter.

lump in the throat
I had this symptom off and on for a couple of months. After reading about it, I decided it was most likely acid reflux or spasm of the esophagus. Since spasms usually resolve on their own after a few days, I figured acid reflux was the most likely culprit. I had been eating several ounces of intense dark chocolate every day. I had always heard that chocolate could cause heartburn, but being a chocoholic and convinced of its health benefits, I refused to believe it. But I eased up on the chocolate and the lump in the throat disappeared. Now I only eat no more than an ounce a day, if any. So I'd say experiment with your diet and see if something you eat is causing this.

It feels like something is always in my throat!!!
I have the same irritating throat feeling, it annoys me to the point where i've formed a coughing habbit, sometimes a dry cough, sometimes muccousy, but I do always feel like something is in my throat, it's usually mucus, just a normal color, not yellow, or green or anything indicating infection of any sort, i've had heart burn on and off for the past few years due to pregnancies i've been through and I think they may have worsened my condition, but that phlegm stuck in my throat making me cough feeling has been here since I was 15, and I am now 25! I also smoke, which I believe makes it even worse because then there is also a dry feeling in my throat and irritates it. I do not think that every one of us just has acid reflux, doctors sometimes just take a quick peak and write you a script when there is an even bigger underlying issue, I would say to everybody on here to have all types of blood tests done, it could be a viral illness or disease that an EENT doctor wouldnt look into as much as need be, the answer is not always acid reflux, you coul have over active muccus due to allergies and in a lot of these cases people actually find out through blood tests of variouse sorts that they have had STD's and even sometimes immune problems that can cause your throat and lungs and strees to act up, all kinds of illnesses, diseases, and infections can cause this feeling in the throat, i've had all the blood work done and I do have over active muccus, and when I drink milk and stuff like that it makes it act up, and i've also had MRI, chest X-Rays and tons of blood work done and i am in the clear with all of that, but it sounds a little silly to me that everybody would believe that it's just acid reflux, and if that's all it is than why is nothing working? My best advice is to just go ahead and get blood work done and get checked out for any other diseases,illnesses, and/or infections that could be causing the problems, dont buy the whole " It's just Acid Reflex," because it will only get worse if that's not what it is but yet you're taking the meds for it because you trusted your dr who believe me is not always right! Good luck every one and if meds are not helping even when you up the dose and have been taking them for a while now, maybe you need to look into blood work and what else it could be! Have a great day everybody!!!

lump in the throat 2
OK - I'm not saying it's ALWAYS acid reflux, but it is common problem, diet is often the culprit and it's worth a try. There's no harm in experimenting with your diet to see if that helps before trying drugs or expensive tests that you may not be able to afford. Try the simple things first. I'm just sharing what helped me in case it's true for someone else, too. And of course smoking will aggravate just about any condition.

yeah i have the same symptoms and yes, when i burp the feeling goes away.. also i feel that when im doing something it goes away as well. the other day i felt it so i went for a walk and when i got home i didnt feel it anymore, for some reason ive been feeling it today again, but only when im sitting, thinking about it. i force burps because it makes the feeling go away but i dont think its a very good idea to force-burp as much as i do, i get bad heartburn from it. also i feel like im having trouble swallowing because of it, but then i swallow more that usual to trey and make it go away and i think that makes it worse too.... im going to go to the doctor again. i went a couple weeks ago and had blood tests and a thyroid test done and everything was fine.. so i dunno, i just panic i guess.

Mucus stuck in throat
Hi, Thank you for your forum.
First of all, I have real mucus in my throat all of the time. It gets worse during and after a cold. It gets a little better but is always there. The ENT said I have a hiatal hernia which causes reflux and put me on some medication, but not having reflux, I developed it, so went off of the medication!
I fly a few times a year and always seem to develop a cold beforehand and have to take anti-biotics. I believe this mucus trapped in my throat is the key to my chronic colds. If you have bacteria living in your throat constantly, how are you supposed to fight off the germs?
Someone told me it is post-nasal drip. Yes, I know I have that, but it wouldn't cause mucus to be trapped there with no relief (and I mean I can not cough it up or swallow it down, it is stuck).
It seems to get worse with each year, I have been told I even developed bronchitis and had to have an inhaler to relieve my dry cough.
Good luck, people, I will post any hope I may get once I receive an appropriatate answer.

Hi.

I'm a 37 year old male and just found this very useful thread. I've had a lump in the throat feeling for the past 3 months. It comes and goes but is recently much worse. I feel like I can't swallow. I get lots of burping too but those are the only symptoms - no heartburn, no burning sensation etc.

I went to the doctors two weeks ago and was diagnosed with acid reflux and given a PPI (Lansoprazole). At first the meds seemed to be helping and my symptoms (certainly the burping) reduced. 14 days into the treatment though and the lump feeling is still there. In fact, it's worse than ever.

I've tried changing my diet a little but it's hard as I live in a big family and we all eat together. I've cut out alcohol and will now try cutting out caffeine and tomatoes too (very hard as I LOVE both of these things!)

I have also been taking glucosamine and probiotic multivits plus omega 3 for 8 or so years. I've recently read that glucosamine can cause acid buildup so I've stopped taking that. I am still on the multivits and omega3 though.

It could be stress related as I have a very stressful job. The more I think about this the more stressed I become so it's a vicious circle!

I'm going to go back to my doctor and insist on an endoscopy. I'm worried that I could have Barrats Espohagus or worse. This fear is not unfounded as 10 years ago I had surgery on my tongue for pre-cancerous displasia. This is all clear now but has made me quite paranoid about cancer.

Thanks for your stories and reports. Let's share this info and help each other. I will post an update.

CURE FOR LUMP IN THROAT FEELING
Got a Cure Guys My doctor found it out Domperidon tablets, Had it for 2 years its not stress, it is not acid reflux Now, It is however damage to your esophagus done by previous acid reflux. It has damaged your nerves and muscles in the bottom of esophagus or stomach and it struggles to push food through, some foods cause it to spazm making the food stuck and causes your throat to feel tight, coffee is the worst or tea, sets mine off. Here is how you get Rid of the lump in your throat. ASK YOUR DOCTOR For 10mg of Domperidon, 2 tablets takes it away. Hope it helps NOT in USA the med but in UK you can get it. Its under a med that helps motion sickness if that helps in USA but UK you get it fine. Drove me crazy thought I had cancer and thyroid problems a 300 pack, 2 pounds it cost?. drink warm water only no cold or hot.

Let me know how you guys get on with Domperidon 10 mg tablets. I checked everywhere my doctor on a hunch just said try this? Lump gone in 10 mins. post your results here. Domperidone belongs to a group of medicines called antiemetics. These medicines work by acting on your digestive system, helping to suppress nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick).

what you are all suffering with is GERD......believe me, I know and have been there.....but inevitably.....that is what it is....yes, GERD can cause hoarseness, a cough, sore throat.....that condition is called LPR or Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and is similar if not related entirely to GERD.....please be careful not to underestimate GERD and its seriousness.....it can lead to Barrett's esophagus which is a precursor to esophageal cancer.....so get it treated!

I also suffer from this same condition a lump in my throat, at first I thought it was cancer so me and my wife went to see a doctor, the doctor had no idea what it was eventually he told me to see a throat and nose specialist so I did, I was told to have a nasal cavity operation with packing placed in my nose, this was a very irritating operation, unfortunately after the operation the lump in my throat continued,

Symptoms :

- Dry cough,
- Chest or lungs feeling like its punctured
- A feeling of heavyness
- Shortness of breath
- Heartburn and some indigestion

I previously smoked cigarettes but have quit, I try to
avoid very spicy foods, like McDonalds with sauces, I also began exercising, and also try to relax and stress less. This lump in throat situation is becoming overly exhausting. Because of the dry cough I am thinking that it might be emphysema or an ashmatic cough.

I have no idea what to do ? I am getting really anxious looking for a solution

Doctor told me it is a involuntary tightening of the muscle in the throat, a cricophylageal reflux or spasm. It has been over a year now but this feeling in my throat continues, the case of a golf ball stuck in my throat.

lump in throat stiff neck
I am 25 years old and do have a hectic lifestyle. About 4 months ago i deveoped an abscess in my large molar and was taken ill with it. Around two days later I noticed a lump feeling in my throat and my lymph nodes were extremely reactive aparently. My dentist took ages to see me and in the end was taken ill in france on holiday and a dentist there sorted me out. Since though my neck feels very tight and have what feels like a gob stopper stuck in my throat. I do get a little anxious at times but when I went to the doctors he said he again thought it was acid reflux. I was precribed laproxin. I have taken it nw for a month and it is not any better, my shoulders are tight and the ball at the back of my neck is tender. I am burping around 120 times a day and feels lke my throat is not big enough to get any air through it. I have had a ultra sound and get the results tomorrow. I just want an answer so I can get on with things It has been a nightmare

Did you get any type of rash? I had an abscessed tooth, before my throat lump. I ended up getting it out because it was a failed root canal.
Around the same time of the abscess I started developing a rash... dark patches of skin here and there, a new 1 every other week.
As soon as the tooth was out no more rash. But the lump in my throat/oesophagus is still there. I thought for a time that I had a rash inside my oesophagus.

I've spent, no wasted $1000's on dermatologist, Dr's, dentists, endodontists... none subscribe to my theory that the tooth was the cause, of at least the rash.

here i am thinking im the only one. i've had this feeling in my throat for a couple years now...on and off. i always thought it was due to anxiety and stress but im not sure anymore. the only way i feel relief is to throw up. it usually happens really bad when i eat while at work or if i'm eating something too salty. i hate throwing up...a couple months ago it was really bad and i did it atleast twice a day...and no im not bullimic. i went to the doctors before and he didn't say anything...just recommended me to a special doctor...everyday it feels like i have a ball in my throat and it effects when i talk i cant say a very long sentence without running out of breath.
