These are my feeling as well as mucus, burning in my throat, a ball in my throat. I never get the burning in my chest. I do get anxious and then all the symptoms get worse. I see a specialist every month for the past 6 months. It gotten a bit better but not 100% maybe 60%. I been on Nexium as well. Aciphex is gentler on my stomach. I'm also taking probiotics twice a day and papaya enzyme. It seems they are helping a bit. I avoid all food that are acidic and sodas, I drink only water and camomile tea. I also dont eat at night, my lasy meal is @ 6:00pm, adl I dont lay down 3 hours after i ate. I'm in the process of reading Dr. Sarno's books. I'll let you know if it helps(I'm not sure it will). I just dont know what to do anymore.
