One side occasional throat pain. Somewhat connected to ear. Pain only when deep inhale/exhaling, worsen when lying down. GERD?

One side occasional throat pain. Somewhat connected to ear. Pain only when deep inhale/exhaling, worsen when lying down. GERD?

Not typical for GERD: Throat pain is often referred to the ears, the relationship of the pain with your respiratory effort is unclear but the unilateral nature and chronicity of your complaints makes a consultation with the otolaryngologist a wise step. Take care.

Check it out: I am not sure if your lump is related to gerd. It may or may not. I recommend it be checked, though. Go to your primary care physician to begin with and he may request ENT or gastroenterology consult. You can take ranitidine or Famotidine or Omeprazole or Lansoprazole over-the-counter for your reflux symptoms. If they lump goes away on that therapy, you would know it is reflux related. ...Read more

Have GERD, noticed something that feels like obstruction in my throat that gets better when I burp. I also get sore throat and rib pain on both sides.

Have GERD, noticed something that feels like obstruction in my throat that gets better when I burp. I also get sore throat and rib pain on both sides.

Swallowing trouble?: Swallowing trouble can reflect problems when moving food from mouth to upper esophagus (tranfer dysphagia) or when moving food down the esophagus (transit dysphagia). Partial obstruction of esophagus may "hang-up" dry solid foods but typically allow liquids to pass. Motility disorders may "hang-up" both solids as well as liquids. Consider globus, spasm, as well as eosinophilic esophagitis too here. ...Read more

Can stress cause a GERD flare up, despite daily dose of Pantoprazole? If so would it cause left side back pain, and would whitish flem come up my throat? My throat has been dry because of this but I have no cough.

Stress can increase: Acid formation in the stomach despite the pantoprazole. Increased acid formation needs to be neutralized with medication managment. Increased acid in the stomach can cause laryngo-pharyngeal reflux followed with throat discomfort. I hope this helps.

Pain in right side of throat when swallowing - I have GERD due to hiatal hernia leading to chronic pharyngitis (although have never felt sore throat)?

Partial Rx GERD: I suspect the discomfort is related to your partially treated GERD. You are already taking Nexium (esomeprazole) and using Nasonex. Other non-drug treatments include not smoking, avoiding trigger foods, avoiding large meals, not lying down for 2 hours after eating, elevating head of bed, losing weight, avoiding tight belts, and chewing gum. If you have tried all these, review with doc alternate drug treatment ...Read more

I would like furter information on my question of yesterday, had up GI series for gerd, found it was full, from stomach to neck, what is called.

Esophag. Obstruction: If stuff is not emptying out of the bottom of the esophagus, into the stomach, doctors can call it esophageal obstruction... Until they figure out why stuff is not easily getting through to the stomach. Once a diagnosis of the cause of the blockage is made, then doctors can call the condition by the cause (such as esophageal stricture, achalasia, esophageal cancer, etc...). ...Read more

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.

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

Do GERD symptoms include feeling something stuck on your throat?

Maybe: This is a very common complaint amongst patients with gerd, but is poorly understood. There is definately the sensation something is stuck there, but typically nothing really is. It probably has to do with abnormal sensory input form the pharynx and upper esophageal sphincter. In any case, its certainly not dangerous.
