Feeling In Throat?
Posted 11 May 2010 - 05:58 PM
I'm thinking it could be anything - dry heat (we have a wood furnace), my myofascial pain syndrome, chemicals in my home or mold or anything really, but I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this or had any insight.

do you also experience heartburn?
my dr put me on an rx (as opposed to me taking tums all day) or an over the counter.
i was up to taking it 2x's a day.
when i had my upper endoscopy they looked for GERD. fortunatly i don't have GERD but i do have scarring from the acid reflux
i was told to add a number of foods to my "forbidden list" in addition to going gluten-free/CF/SF - chocolate, caffeine, acids (including tomatos, and anything else in the nightshade family such as eggplant.)
it has helped a LOT - and now i almost never need the RX - i just take it when i KNOW i am going to eat a "forbidden" food such as tomato sauce on pasta or when i have slipped on the diet.
i still get throat lump days - but they are almost gone and are almost only on days i eat stuff i shouldn't
