I visited my ENT two weeks ago who told me that my throat looks so great, he wouldn't be able to diagnose me with reflux if he didn't already know I had it. While this is great news, some symptoms still persist. I have alot of belching, and recently developed the classic "lump in throat" and intermittent throat tightness. I know this is a symptom of LPR, however, I am not sure if this is a result from the extreme anxiety I have faced over my symptoms for the last few months. If I was at the ENT two weeks ago and my throat had no damage, could I all of the sudden develop this lump?

Also, does anyone in here have LPR with belching?

I have LPR and belch probably 10 times more than the average person.

Hey Chuck,

Thanks for your response. I don't often hear of too many LPR sufferers with belching, so I was just wondering. I wonder if that would suggest GERD in addition to LPR?
Feel Good,

I have LPR. I belched A LOT until my reflux was better controlled. Prilosec did not help, but with Nexium and the Kauffman Low Acid diet, I am continuing to improve slowly.
