I think mine is caused by combination of anxiety and acid hurting my throat.

I'm bumping this up because I am wondering the same thing. I am on Protonix 2/day and have lately been having lump in my throat/difficulty breathing. I wonder if this is coming from too much Protonix??

I notice this is an old post, but I wonder the same thing. I've had a swallowing problem for years, but it was tolerable until a few months back. Both my reflux & swallowing got significantly worse and continues to be a problem. But originally, before I developed this problem, I went to the doctor for heartburn & regurgitation after meals. He prescribed Nexium at the time. It controlled the reflux, but I started having issues swallowing shortly after taking those pills. To this day, I continue to wonder if the swallowing problem was caused by the pills, either as a side affect, or the pills causing more reflux due to too little acid. It's hard to tell now, as it could have just been my reflux getting worse despite the pills. I remember I tried going off of them at the time, but my heartburn would come back even stronger

Hi, I'm usually on the Crohn's forum but have developed gastritis so it seems. My doctor put me on 2 pantoprazole a day, one in the morning and one at night and I don't seem to be having any problems swallowing. I do burp a fair amount though.
