Post Doc says its GERD, I dont buy it also MEDICATION QUESTION

I have got a question about GERD, I don't have heart burn but I do have the feeling that food is stuck in my throat, I don't have excess gas, but I also do have abdominal pain, and my glands in my neck feel swollen and they hurt BAD! Docs only say its GERD I don't believe it. HELP http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif

I had GERD without heartburn. I developed GERD from an H pylori infection. Have you been tested for that? I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck (I assume from H pylori). I sometimes had the sensation that I was choking on something. A couple times I started choking so badly it was hard to breathe. I also had a problem with esophagus spasms.

It's a bacterial infection that can cause ulcers. I believe the primary way you get it is through contaminated food or water. You can have the infection for a long time without any symptoms. It's fairly easy to treat with antibiotics. There's lots of info about it on the web and on this site. Search for H pylori or Helicobacter pylori.
