Is it true that there is no cure to acid reflux (gerd)? I have this since 2006. I feel like there's a food stuck in my throat. Feel heartburn.Any tip?

Can be fixed: First, objective testing to document gerd (ph test) and correlate symtoms, along with endoscopy, upper GI contrast study and manometry should be done. If appropriate, stertta procedure done endoscopically or surgical procedure can be highly effective, but aren't perfect.

I feel like there's always food in my throat. I was diagnosed to have GERD 5 years ago. Could this be that I have GERD again? Thanks.

Yes: The feeling of food in the throat is a not uncommon symptom of GERD. Since GERD tends to be a long-term illness, it is possible that you may need to be back on medication for it. If you are having actual sticking of your food as you try to swallow it, you may need an endoscopy to look at and perhaps dilate your esophagus, in addition. You should see your doctor for further advice. Good luck. ...Read more

When it's a severely failing valve then actual food comes up like you are experiencing. Anti-reflux surgery is 95% effective at curing typical reflux symptoms and regurgitation. See a surgeon experienced in minimally invasive reflux surgery. ...Read more

Sometimes i feel food has trouble traversing my throat and mid esophogous. I have had to force myself to vomit to dislodge. I have gerd. Diagnosis?

Motity disorder: You may have an esophageal motility disorder, where your esophagus doesn't work in a coordinated fashion to push the food down. This is typically an intermittent problem, and some of these disorders may be associated with gerd. A test with a tube in the nose can help make the diagnosis. Treatment options are limited, but fixing the gerd with and endoscopic or surgical procedure might help. ...Read more
