Inflammation: Acid reflux can cause inflammation of tissues or irritation of the nerve endings in your upper airway/GI tract which can be perceived as a sensation of a lump in your throat. Sometimes depression or anxiety which are associated with pro-inflammatory states in your body can cause the same sensation.
