You've been given great advice. I've had reflux for yrs and currently taking Prolisec 40mg once a day. I have been on a couple of meds over the yrs, because it seems that I have to switch from time to time.
I think an Endoscopy is a good idea, at least you may know what's going on. I have experienced the tight throat on occasion which generally sends me to the ER for a cocktail. I have tried all kinds of home remedies in the past and have spent a ton of money on remedies, but the best thing is to monitor food intake. Stay away from stuff that bothers you, and, I know it isn't the easiest thing to do......But, do your best. Also walk and drink plenty of water if you can.
I had a weight problem just a short time ago, so started drinking Boost & Ensure + combo of meds keeping reflux and anxiety down enabled me to eat and put a couple of pounds on.
Best wishes, and I hope you start feeling better soon.
