Anyone else caught in a vicious cycle of LPR/throat clearing?

Quick background, 22 years old, Dr. diagnosed with with LPR after having occasional tightness in throat and pain in neck. Thyroid ultrasounds normal. I was put on a PPI daily, this is month #6.

I'm getting ready to go away soon, first time overseas and my problems are awful. I think it is stress/anxiety related... but taking L-theanine or tryptophan didn't help. Also it seems to happen randomly, I feel better after a long night's sleep on a flat pillow even and drinking doesn't even really aggravate it.

I THINK the main strangling feeling is actually from trying to clear my throat. Either with a ahemm sound, or sniffing in mucus and trying to expel in through my mouth. I think it actually makes matters worse when I do so, and it's a nasty cycle as the worse it gets, the more mucus gets caught back there. Problems also give me trouble during colds.

It's only been 6 hours now though after trying to stop clearing my throat completely, so I'm a little anxious to see if this will help or not.

I'm desperate to try anything now. Just bought ACV at Whole foods and not sure yet if I am ready to try that being that I am leaving soon, but I am going to try the aloe juice I just bought.

Anyone else seem to have trouble with throat mucus clearing and irritation?
