For the past 5 months... after have a sever case of heartburn, indigestion, etc. And going to the hospital and being diagnosed w/gastritis problems... I have had the feeling of something stuck in my throat. I try to clear it and it won't go away. I have that obnoxious barking cough and throat clearing growl. It does concern me and give me some stress thinking could it be cancerous and from time to time I'll get "light" indigestion but nothing to concern me. I am a smoker but I am quitting and down a lot more than what I was. After going to the ER and being told it's symptoms of GERD and only a CT scan performed and nothing abnormal such as cancer I would like to know if anyone has experienced the same and what I can do to help relieve it all or if anything may help to heal it.

I can't answer a lot of your questions, but throat clearing is a classic reflux/GERD sign. Clearing the throat isn't recommended if you can help it per my GI doc.

I have the same thing..I feel like I have constant post nasal drip and mucus in my throat..A few months ago, I was having chest pains and after many heart tests was told it was digestive..My doctor put me on PPIs which didn't help and my chiropractor suggested a supplement called Zypan by Standard process..Basically, it is composed of digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid..His premise was that I didn't have enough acid to digest my food..The Zypan was like a miracle drug and all pain went away. however, now I have the mucous and throat clearing constantly....and some pain in my back ribs on the left..
I have been told that throat clearing and the lump in the throat feeling are both GERD symptoms...if you had something serious, the CT scan would have detected it, don't you think?
