Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

I have a feeling of tightness or a lump in my throat constantly. I have grade one esophagitis and abnormal esophageal motility. My doctor explained that my upper esophageal sphincter is clamping shut, perhaps to keep acid out of my throat, and as a result I am feeling the lump when swallowing. Dry swallowing seems to aggravate the issue, and for some reason mucus seems particularly difficult to swallow.

The lump in throat sensation can also be caused by post nasal drip. GERD can cause PND, but not all cases of PND are caused by GERD. For some people, anxiety causes the feeling of something being stuck in the throat. This sensation also can be attributed to cricopharyngeal spasms.

When the pills get stuck in your throat, are you taking them alone or with water? If a pill gets stuck in your esophagus, it can cause irritation to the lining.
