i've been experiencing this for about a week and it wont go away, according to drs i have LPR but i didn't not have this bfore, it came suddenly a month after being on ppi's (still on them), no matter how much water i drink it stays there, i've tried chewing gum, drinking baking soda with water, eating more, but nothing happens i wonder if it's really food or maybe some laryngeal reaction to food..

Sounds like globus - the sensation of something in the throat. This is a common symptom of LPR. It can occur with other diseases (sinusitis, post nasal drip from rhinitis) but since you have been diagnosed with LPR I would guess that to be the cause especially if it is constant.

LPR is usually treated with double dosage of PPIs

lol yeah i know that stuff like the back of my hand but i can't find a solution, i've been on prilosec 20 mg double dose and for a month and now i get this new symptom, btw i saw you on another LPR forum but that one is pretty dead i also have rhinitis (allergic) no idea if it's related to lpr.

You may be experiencing excess mucus - it could be from your LPR or could be from your rhinitis. Since you have rhinitis as well, I found a couple of ENT websites that say a good rule of thumb to tell the difference between PND related to rhinitis and PND related to LPR is that with rhinitis you have other nasal symptoms such as congestion and runny nose and the globus feeling isn't constant and can be lessen by antihistamines. With the LPR it is constant and not helped by antihistamines but is lessen by doubling up on PPIs for a minimum of 6 weeks

I never have the constant globus feeling, Sometimes when I eat a hot meal I might get a very slight feeling that doesn't last long - clear my throat once or twice and it si gone. We were at my dad's tonight and I mentioned it after eating and both my parents, my wife and my daughter said they experience the same thing. I don't think all five of us have LPR but we all have rhinitis as well. I have talked to several folks who say they experience the same thing so it must be somewhat common as long as it isn't constant.

It sounds like you have tried the stuff that should work - drinking lot of water, chewing gum but you might try an antihistamine or a mucus reducer to see if it will help. Also, avoid dairy products as it will cause the mucus to be thick (assuming this is mucus you are experiencing).

Good luck. I feel for folks who struggle with LPR. I know the small amount of mucus I have sometimes when I eat can be a pain in the neck (no pun intended) and I can't imagine having to deal with that all the time.

I have chronic rhinitis mainly vasomotor rhinitis. Diagnosed by observation by doc. After several rounds of antibiotics it didn't clear up but antihistamines help it. The vasomotor rhinitis was diagnosed due to the fact that temperature changes greatly affect my congestion, etc. Also, while mine is considered chronic (lasting longer than a month), it is better in more humid times of the year and worse in dry times. I also have gustatory rhinitis which is non-allergic that causes congestion, runny nose and PND when eating certain foods
