"Lump in Throat" Sensation - GERD?
Just wondering if anyone has experienced a "lump in the throat" sensation as a manifestation of acid reflux? When I don't think about it, I don't feel it. But when I swallow saliva (I don't really notice it when swallowing food), it feels like there is a little something stuck there.
I have a history of acid reflux and have been on PPI's for about 6 months, but just started having this sensation a few days ago. Thyroid tests, etc were normal when I had them done in April...
I am hoping that paleo will alleviate the need for PPI's so I can get off them once and for all.
Any thoughts? Advice? Experience with this issue?
