Re: throat locking
This is not normal for GERD or LPR. You may feel that your throat is locking up but if it is, then it's something else besides GERD (which, I've thought all along with your symptoms) Have they mentioned the word that starts with an A? Can't remember how to spell it but it's like anaclaysia or something like that. Spasms of the trachea and esphogus can make you feel this way also. I've always been comforted by the fact that gastro spec says GERD can't kill you. Never said LPR can't because I don' think they know. I'm having doubts about both now. My quality of life sucks after 10 yrs of dealing with this and I can't imagine someone as young as you with children having to go through this. I pray for you too and hope they find a better diagnose than GERD, which I'm afraid is becoming a scape goat for busy Dr's.
