Does anyone experience a noise or sensation of throat muscles moving shortly after swallowing? I have occasionally had a feeling of air or bubbles after swallowing......lately I have the the sound almost everytime I swallow. I can swallow and then about 2 seconds later I can feel the muscles moving along with a sound or gurlging noise. I seems to get worse after eating like the muscles get or throat tissues get irriatated. I am thinking about going for a barium swallow to see if this shows anything. I have gone to the doctors for this and they seem to not know what it is. It happened after an endoscopy with the bravo monitor. They say this isn't related. I hope it clears up soon. It's not painful just annoying. My throat sometimes gets very tight after eating also.

Welcome to the GERD forum.  I do not have this problem but perhaps another member will have some info for you.

Again a warm welcome to you.

I thought about this some more after I posted. I did have similar issue a few times. I had strictures from the reflux. They dilated the areas and that helped for about a year. If you have the barium swallow study done it should show if you have this.

Take care,

Just had the barium swallow done and everything looked good. The doctor that did those tests said he thinks the noise will just take care of itself and I hope he's right.........maybe just a case of nerves from all the health issues. My noise only comes when I swallow saliva. Like the muscles work harder to just swallow because of being tense is what I'm guessing now. At least the tests that have been done have given me piece of mind.
