Could be reflux: A persistent feeling of a 'lump in the throat' is usually due to reflux of acid. It might also be due to anxiety or other factors. The combination of this with abdominal discomfort and a hungry feeling might further suggest reflux or possibly an ulcer. If this is a frequent feeling, i would see a gastroenterologist.
