I was diagnosed with laryngo-pharyngeal reflux about three weeks ago.  I've been on nexium and an anti-reflux diet since then.  My heartburn is gone, but the lump in the throat feeling is still there.  Anyone else experience this?

Yes,Sarah, I find that also. While I have the heartburn I cannot notice the lump but when it calms down, then I feel the lump there. I would rather have the lump than heartburn as that is not painful, just irritating. I am trying the spring water recommended by Northern Joe and I think it may be helping. I don't have so much heartburn anyway. I do most of the things that are supposed to help acid reflux, elevated bed, no tea, coffee, or soft drinks, etc,  so something is bound to work one day. I see you are taking Nexium. That didn't help me, nor did Pariet. Before that I took Zantac and then Domperidome. Not much help from any of those things. I think the liquid Gaviscon helped a bit. I took enough to kill a horse but anyway, I'm not on that at the moment nor anything else. So, I think considering that I had taken so much before and had no relief that the tap water must have been a problem for me. Good luck, Carol

I have reflux esophagitis, hiatus hernia and gastritus. I also get the lump feeling in my throat. My doctor tells me it's only a feeling and there isn't anything in my throat. I was taking Prevacid 2X per day but now I'm on it 1X per day. Next week I'm going for a HIDA Scan and a Gull Bladder scan. I'm not really sure what a HIDA Scan is? I do notice the lump feeling isn't as bad since I gave up coffee and tea and soda. Also, eating small meals, no large meals.

Feel Better,

Lou

Yes, I'm trying smaller meals also but since I was such a large eater before I might only be down to normal now :-) Anyway, I do have the lump this morning and some throat tenderness so I'm keeping the water going. Hope it passes off. No, I've never heard of the HIDA scan. I had my gallbladder out years ago, so no problem with that. I feel they only took that because I had such a bad stomach and they couldn't find the what was wrong with me but only a couple of small stones were found. Some drs are surgery happy.
