Nothing wrong : This may be what is called a "globus" sensation or could be related to your stated history of acid reflux. The globus sensation is generally associated with anxiety. And the more you worry about it, the more noticeable the sensation. This does not mean it's your fault or that it's all in your head. It speaks to the powerful relationship between mind and body. There are many ways to work with this.
