Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi sadgirl. I've tried Protonix, Prilosec and Nexium. They all must have been effective since my first scope showed a stomach ulcer and grade B esophagitis but my second scope showed everything was normal. The funny thing is that even though I was healing, I continued throughout to have the feeling that there was something stuck in my throat. I would have days when the feeling was gone and days when it returned. I don't know what to make of it. I hope you find relief soon.

I experienced a progression very similar to yours. It started with the feeling of something stuck in my throat, and a few weeks later I would feel pressure building in my chest. After pounding on my chest with my fist, I would belch and then the build-up would start again. I was put on Prilosec and then Nexium, but after a month of each drug, swallowing was painful. I finally had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with Grade A esophagitis.

After a month on Dexilant 60mg, I no longer have to force out burps and the painful swallowing is gone, but I still have the sensation of something being in my throat when dry swallowing. It isn't unbearable, but gosh is it annoying! Let us know if it goes away eventually. At this point I'm just waiting it out. My doctor says it's the upper esophageal sphincter clamping shut and that eventually it will relax. I've been dealing with this since February. If it is still happening in August, I think I'm going to beg for either a muscle relaxant or a cricopharyngeal myotomy at my 3 month follow-up with my doctor.
