My name's Christian and I'm 21.

I woke up this morning with this horrible feeling in my throat. It felt like I was choking on something.
I sat up and realized I wasn't but there was a definitely feeling for something being lodged in my throat.
I figured it might have been the way I was sleeping so I went back to bed only to wake up again with them same problem.
This time however the feeling of something in my throat was accompanied by an acidy burning sensation.
Being no stranger to heartburn I got up and drank some milk. This did nothing for me. The burning eventually went away and I was able to get back to bed.

Going about the rest of my day the lodged feeling hasn't gone away and I am incredibly gasy burping every few minutes. When I do burp the burning feeling comes back and for the lack of a better description it feels like someone stabs me in the throat. I went out and bought some pepdo; and I took Tums, I drank milk all day but no relief.

This has easily been going on for 16+ hours (which is nothing compared to weeks and months for some people on this forum) but I was hoping someone here might have an idea as to what I can do/what this might be.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Good Morning and Welcome to HealingWell,

I would call my PCP and try to see him/her today and from there I would suspect you would need to see a GI physician.  When you call the clinic do be sure to stress how long you have had this feeling of choking and they should get you in to be seen.

Take care and keep talking to us.
