I just posted about a tight throat too - it's really really bothering me and worrying me too. I have been taking Nexium for about 2 weeks and I thought my throat was getting better, but then it starts back up again feeling tight (also like my food gets stuck at the base of my neck when I eat - but the tightness is all the time). I have to wait until the end of Oct to see a Gastro DR and I'm thinking I might try to get in earlier with somebody else because I hate waiting that long. Do you have days when your throat seems tight and then not tight on other days? Now I worry that I have some sort of bacteria like H. Pylori or even something worse wrong with my esophagus. Ugh - worrying is exhausting. I hope you feel better soon - let me know about your throat when you get a chance.
