I am so tired of this lpr thing... I have this problem since february. I was diagnosed in may and put on a double dose of prevacid. At first I was unable to eat anything except yogourt or blend foods : all the rest felt like it got stuck in my throat. It seems that things are better with the prevacid : I eat almost a normal diet now. But for the last 2 weeks I have a tickle in throat sensation and a need to cough after my meals.
I am so afraid I am going to choke and die from this problem and it stresses me a lot. Endoscopy is normal and ENT doctor said I should continue to take the prevacid and just "dont worry" about choking. How can I not worry when I feel things are getting stuck in my throat and I have this cough just after I eat?
I just dont know what to do anymore. I am totally depressed because of this. eyes

jen123,  i am wondering if you decided to just eat yoghurt and blends, or did the GI tell you to do that??

Because I am eating pureed stuff now (baby food! and only the ones without acid) but  a GI never gave me the advice to do that...

I have LPR too, and I have had a lump in my throat feeling for a long time.  it's the esopagus tightening in response to the reflux.  it's a muscle thing.  and sometimes i feel like i'm going to choke.  it used to bother me so, so much.  but..now that i have some other really terrible symptoms to go along with it, the throat sensation doesn't bother me as much.

but i know what you mean, things can get scary.

i have a feeling that you will get better though, and that reducing stress will help, but i know it's hard...hang in there! :)

My diet is almost normal now but when I was eating blends and yogurts some weeks ago it was because I just could not eat anything else. I just felt like I was going to choke from anything else. Even pasta felt stuck in my throat! Now I can eat almost anything but things like steak or tortilla chips are still not on my diet. I wonder if this recent little "relapse" is not because I changed a little bit the time when I take my medication. I use to take my prevacid around 8 in the morning and I started taking it more like 10 so maybe this is what makes a difference. I just hope it gets better soon.

I can't eat anything without having reflux.  So you blended veggies with a blender??
