The lump in my throat causes me to swallow constantly causing a worse lump in my throat and pain all the way down to my stomach.  No idea how to stop this.

Lump? Is it mucus, phlegm, or something else?

I have mucus but my voicebox is swollen and i have lost my voice and have alot of pain as well. This happened overnight when i had a Bravo probe attached to my esophagus. I have been to a dozen doctors and had a hundred tests and they still dont know whats going on. I was put on ativan for the lump sensation (biggest mistake of my life, i didnt know what is was and it has ruined my health, tapering now) and i was also put on protonix twice a day plus zantac at night. That destroyed my digestion and set me up for a massive candida infection. My future looks rough if the lump and swelling dont go down. Not sure how i can handle it.

Have you ever had a 24 hour ph test? Aside from the bravo? I had similar symptoms and the one thing That helped give me answers was that test. Ppis also gave me candida so I can empathize.
