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.

You should see your doctor for further advice. Good luck. ...Read more
