Hi I'm new to this site.... Iv been going insane for the last 3 months I woke up 1 morning with a weird sensation at base of my throat near where my collar bones meet.... Thought I was coming down with something, this went on for 2 weeks without change the only way I can describe it it felty like a bee sting in the inside... Then when the sting feeling went, it felt raw with the sting feeling coming back ever so often and more to right side. If I take a deep breath I get so far and the pain sets in, it feels sharp ripping flesh feeling.
Anyway I convinced myself I had something serious and was going to die.... Anyway my friend said about acid reflux lpr (silent kind) as iv had no heartburn feelings in chest.... So I started taking Zantac and eating small & often & healthy. Then I decided that it couldn't have been lpr as no improvement on my throat and I didn't have the classic symtoms everyone els seems to have like throat clearing, lump sensation, burning sensation, acid taste in mouth, & the hoarse voice , the only symptoms I have are the ones I stated above.
Anyway 3 months on I finally get my ent appointment he puts camera up nose & down throat, he says I have evidence of acid reflux and puts me on omoprazole & gavasgon.
Has anyone els had just my symptoms? & how long does it take for throat to heal? The sore throat is by my laynx not up my my tonsils at back of my mouth.... That area is fine.
