Your peppery sensation in your throat may be caused by bile. Have you changed anything in your diet recently? Are you under any extra stress? I always thought of bile as the worst of the worst. With me anyway, I'd have awful heartburn that wasn't slowing down for several weeks. Then I'd get bile on top of that. Talk about yuck. I had it so bad several years ago that I had to resort to a prescription to calm it. Have you talked to your doctor about this new symptom?
As for your pain, are you on any presciptions, or any medications? I know some medicines can cause side effects, including pain. I had to take myself off of Zegerid for that very reason. My stomach hurt non-stop every day. It took me several weeks to realize it may be my RX.
I hope you feel better soon! Please keep us updated! :)
You can't say
I didn't give it
I won't wait
