    Just curious if I have entered the healing stage.  I was under a lot of stress of for a few weeks and was exposed to a lot of smoke(worked outside during forest fires).  I was immediately put on priolosec and then, switched to Nexium 40 MG a day.  I did everything from raising my bed, sleeping with a humidifier, eating like a rabbit, and not going to bed for three hour hours after eating.  I felt the acid in my throat, my ears were popping because of the pressure, felt a choking sensation,  and had the spasms. They subsided two weeks ago and I can sleep through the night.   Now after being on the meds for a month, I still have the lump sensation but it goes away when my throat is moist, a weird rubbing feeling under my breast bone when I swallow, and this unquenchabled dry throat.  I can eat whatever I want but I have to drink a lot of water. It feels like my throat is leather.  Doctors say it is my burnt throat healing but just want to see if anybody has experienced this same thing.  I feel like I am on the road to recovery but was curious.  Thanks, Tim
