In order to really answer this ? more info is needed.A lump in the throat can mean many things, is it inside, do you have heartburn, only on the inside or outside too, are there other symptoms.You have taken Pepcid/Zantac and Prilosec (same class as Nexium). Cardio may be right but long enough, this should be eval by at an Internist or poss Gastro or ENT depending on ans to some add ?'s.
