Hi I only found this site recently and have already found it really reassuring.
I have recently been diagnosed with LPR although I have suffered with intermitent throat problems for several years. Mainly a burning feeling in my throat and a feeling that I have something stuck in it. I also get reflux if I move about or bend at all after I have eaten but the throat problems have definitely been the worst problem.
It may sound crazy but I am actually releived that my doctor has finally diagnosed the problem and have started medication today. I really want this to stop and am keen to try lifestyle/diet changes as well. Of course, being a born worrier, I am already thinking 'what if the medication doesn't work' and know that I will then be worrying that it is something more serious. My throat definitely gets worse when I am anxious so I know this is a vicious circle.
I would be really grateful to hear that other people have suffered from similar symptoms; burning feeling in the throat, feeling that something is stuck in my throat, feeling like I need to swallow all the time, dry throat and heartburn. I have searched the internet (fatal for a hypochondriac like me) but have found the advice on various sites conflicting so I thought I would post on this forum and 'ask the experts'!
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
