What is chronic gagging symptom of??

Gagging

Gagging
Chronic gagging is due to a hypersensitivity on the pharynx. You could try to anesthetize the area to stop the feedback loop of feeling like there is something there. You can try viscous lidocaine. Your doctor can write for it. It is 2% solution. If this does not work you can try gabapentin. You will need a prescription for this and a doctor's visit. Good luck. Feel better.

I saw a GI Doc that said a gagging feeling in lower throat when bending over is not a symptom of a hiatal hernia (which i have). Would you agree?

Maybe GERD

Hiatal_hernia
Agreed. Of the 70 million Americans with reflux, about half have symptoms without esophageal inflammation. Some may have gagging, cough, hoarseness. Perhaps behavior & diet modification (answered previously on HealthTap) may help if GERD is present, but my best recommendation is to follow your GI doc's advice. Afterall, he knows you best & what your tests have shown. If questions, ask him please.
