This represents GERD: A constant clearing of the throat after eating represents an atypical manifestation of acid reflux disease. The medical term is known as globus which represents a fullness in the back of throat which is worst after eating. The first and most important step in managing reflux is to eat properly by avoiding caffeine, alchohol, fatty foods and tobacco. Another key point is avoid eating late at nite.
