My name is Rachel. I am very glad that I have found you all. I am one of those people who feel a big lump in my throat and also a "hanging" feeling. I have been treated for GERD for the past year and half. Earlier this year I thought I was fine and I stopped taking the meds (I was taking some natural herbs and i thought I actually was better)- big mistake- GERD came back really viciously after about 6 weeks and I have not recovered from that. In fact I also started getting this terrible feeling in my throat and so now I have GERD and LPRD. I am back on GERD meds. I feel OK with the GERD but my throat sometimes really scares me. SO I am happy to find you all to talk with, share, support and learn from each other.
By the way, I went back to the country where I was born and did a lot of medical tests-endoscopy, X-rays, CTscans, saw GI docs and ENT docs and they all said there was nothing wrong with me except GERD and LPRD (oh! I do have a small hiatal hernia). But somedays I swear I feel like I have some big problem going on in my throat. I feel like there's strings of small marbles stuck in my throat going down to my chest.....anyone feel that?
I gave your topic a title :)
