But no when I awoke that morning it was still there but felt also like there was a lump in my throat, like food stuck so I drank something and it went away, well it came back although not as bad and as far up into my throat more like the base of my Adams apple not painful at all but very uncomfortable

I researched the reasons for this and came back with acid reflux but I'm still very unsure as to what it is that's causing this and its scaring the piss out of me to say the least because I was the retard that decided to smoke this stuff and have freaked out the whole day thinking I've got some tumor in my throat chest area, but idk what it really is hence why I'm posting this.

I also am not sure about anxiety or stress or worrying if that has anything to do my symptoms since it did seem to become worse the more I thought about it like right now...

Just trying to see what might be wrong with me so I don't have to spend a grand at the doctors because of obamas healthcare bill.

Thnx for reading about me freaking out! REPLY ASAP haha...
Keep a light heart right?
 
Edit: The type of product you have been using for the past 6 months on a nightly basis  has sickened many and caused at least one death here in MN.  The DEA,  recently put a one-year ban on five chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana, and therefore I will delete any posts about the use of these products as they are considered illegal in more then one place.

Hey WL,

Firstly, welcome to HealingWell. This is a great website for asking questions about GERD/heartburn symptoms and getting tips on how to treat them.

Firstly, yes, the lump in the throat feeling is a very common GERD symptom. Medically, it's called a "globus sensatition". Tumors take years and years to grow so the likelihood that it is a growth is very low :)

Secondly, your nightly ritual has been known to exacerbate GERD symptoms due to the unintended effect of relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter (the valve that keeps acid in your tummy). There are studies that go both ways on this issue, but from message boards I've read, the majority of actual users agree that it seems to make symptoms flare rather than help them.

Thirdly, the gurgling in your stomach is pretty common. I get it also. But it could also just be because you're hungry.

I don't know if you're having other symptoms (burning in the chest, pressure in the chest, belching, etc) so it might have just been an isolated incident and might not have been acid reflux at all! If you are having those symptoms, though, let us know and we can give you advice on how to manage the symptoms, but if you are feeling really bad, you will probably have to go and see a doctor eventually.

Also, we try to refrain from stating our political beliefs here as we want everyone to feel welcome and accepted.

Hope this helps!

Take care,
Ashley

Good Morning an welcome to HealingWell,
 
First of all I did an edit on your post as certain topics that are deemed harmful to our members are not allowed in the forums.  You posted, " I was the retard that decided to smoke this stuff".  Please don't beat yourself up for making a poor choice but recognizing that this may have cause some of your issues and making the decision to refrain from using this substances is a wise decision.  We all make not so wise decisions in our lives.
 
Great response from Ashley and I agree with her.  If you continue to have problems you may have to bit the bullet and see a physician as we are not able to dx.  I suspect the product you have been using cost $$ so consider a trip to the Dr. to be a good investment. 
 
Kindly,
Kitt

Thanks for the replies guys, today it hasn't bothered me so maybe like Ashley said it's an isolated incident either way I've made the choice of refraining from the substance or substances alike, im also sorry for the wording I used just wasn't sure how to word it

Anyways thank you both for being helpful!

Sincerely,
WL
