Re: I have something stuck in my throat. How do I get it out?
Given that you woke up not feeling the lump and then it came back, it sounds like Acid Reflux to me. Some people have a worse attack of it when the go to sleep because the motion of laying down actually makes the valve open more or something. But, I don't have that problem when I have an attack. As I sleep, if I have had an attack of Acid Reflux all day, about 10 minutes after I lay down, it goes away. So, my recommendation is that you see your doctor first to make sure it isn't something like an abrasion or something actually stuck in there. They will give you a Barium swallow and some other tests. At least, that is what they did with me around 7 or 8 years ago, more or less.
In the mean time, don't eat or drink anything acidic. Stay away from any red foods like pasta sauces or enchilada sauces, salsas, or anything spicey. For some reason, whenever I have had an attack, my body's natural draw was to white foods like potatoes or white rice with salt and butter. I don't know why. But, those were the only foods I could eat, and actually craved them and they seemed to help the acid reflux go away. Don't drink any sodas and some say that water only kicks the acid up a notch. I don't know how true that is. You have to drink something to keep yourself hydrated. I guess just try water and see if you feel worse or better. Stay away from chocolate and processed sugary foods. I have read that apple cider vinegar (a tablespoon) can help alleviate an acid reflux attack. You might give that a shot. If you have an herbal store you might go find an enzyme tablet to take. Just go in and ask someone if they have something to help alleviate acid reflux. I have found success with herbal remedies after having no success with stuff like Pepcid AC. Plus, they are natural so, unless you are allergic to them, they won't hurt you and can only help you get more healthy. And, they are not meant to completely kill the necessary acid in your stomach.
But, again, you should find out for sure that it is acid reflux by visiting your doctor.
Take care and keep in touch!
