The first time I had LPR it presented itself with PND, chronic cough, sore throat, 2 or 3 episodes of reflux. It last 3 mo.
I recently within the last few months have it back.  This time I have the lump in the throat feeling, tightening in my throat, pressure that is relieved by burping.  I bend over and can feel the fluid rising in my throat and a big burp ensues.
I had hoarseness that only lasted a day and a slight sore throat about a day.  I  had it under control after 2 mo. and now
it is starting again.  Not as bad as before but it is back and annoying.  Now I am mostly getting that feeling in my chest that I have to burp, my ears close up and not actual chest pain but an awareness across my upper chest that lasts a min or so.  This is causing so much anxiety for me.  I am taking wellbutrin, ativan, prilosec and zantac.  When it is at its worse for me I have nasal congestion, blocked ears, that discomfort in my chest, burping and that tightening in my throat.
It is not as bad as it was a few months ago but don't understand why it has come back.  It was years since my first attack.  I was anxious prior to getting it again. I know it is a cycle...LPR/Anxiety go hand in hand.
Does anyone else out there experience this sensation in the chest and throat with the nasal pressure and ears closing up.

You sound like your LES is weak. Have you discussed the surgery with your doctor?

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
