Acid Reflux And Throat Tightness
What does gerd or acid reflux feel like? I have trouble speaking clearly and throat tightness and want to know if it is related.
Sounds like you've: Already been diagnosed with reflux. GERD (esophagitis) can develop if you've had untreated reflux for a while. Reflux sometimes causes a burning sensation in the stomach or lower esophagus and belching. Occasionally stomach contents can reflux up to the throat and you can taste or feel them. Reflux can cause hoarseness, cough and sore throat. Hard 4 me to say if these symptoms are related.
Technically called GERD, acid reflux is the presence of acidic stomach contents in the esophagus. The acid irritates the esophagus causing heartburn symptoms.

I have acid reflux, I am on Nexium (esomeprazole). When I feel my acid flare up, feel a tightness in my throat I get a dry cough quite often. Is this typical?
If progressive...: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid ; pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Impedance pH testing with a symptom diary can best characterize this.

The area behind "swollen glands" in neck/throat feel tight. I have acid reflux & hiatal hernia on meds but this feeling persists. What's a cause?
Check for sinusitis: Swollen glands in the neck are generally the result of chronic sinus drainage or other head and neck inflamation especially in young otherwise healthy individuals. You should seek the attention of a medical doctor to better assess the situation or an ENT doctor.
Evaluation: Get evaluation by physician, take over the counter medications for reflux before you see a doctor.
Yes: I don't know your details. The answer is that your throat has no acid protection system. If stomach acid is allowed to reflux then it could burn your throat tissue. If this is recurrent you need checked.
I have headache, tight throat, chest pain, blur vision and very tired. Issit becos of my bad acid reflux, feel like someone is chocking me.
Acid reflux: Hello. Some of your symptoms sound like reflux induced but some don't. Choking sensation, tightness in your throat, and maybe even chest burning could be linked.
