Unhappy LPR Symptoms From Swallowed Bone?

I swallowed a small chicken bone over a month ago and have had discomfort/difficulty swallowing along with re-flux symptoms ever since. I have not had any heartburn. Eating or drinking anything aggravates my throat and I constantly feel a lump in my throat. I also burp a lot when I eat and sometimes from drinking water.

So far I've had a neck X-ray at the ERA, an exam of my throat at the ENT, an upper GI endoscopy, and a videostroboscopy. Almost everything came back negative except the GI noticed a small hiatal hernia and my larynx was red on the videostroboscopy.

I've been on nexium most of this time that the ENT prescribed, but it hasn't seemed to help much. I also haven't eaten much in the last several weeks and have lost roughly 20 pounds. The foods I have eaten are all soft/liquid like chicken soup, rice, or oatmeal.

I've read "The Acid Watcher Diet" and am hoping to try it, although it's difficult for me to eat anything, regardless of pH level, on account of the discomfort.

Has anyone had a similar experience from swallowing a foreign object/had instant LPR symptoms? Also wondering if/when/how anyone has recovered from this and how long it takes. Every week I hope and pray that I'll get better and unfortunately it seems like nothing has changed. It's hard not become depressed and feel debilitated by a condition that seems to have come out of nowhere and will not improve.

Re: LPR Symptoms From Swallowed Bone?

Hi I also been the same since I chock in aluminium foil. I went to emergency a few days latter because I felt something was still on my throat. They did neck x ray doctor sent me for chest x ray didn't found nothing. Doctor put me on Omeprazol and fell better and start to eat everything again but than I took less of the capsule a few days and stop working. Now I'm back on soft foods and on Lansoprazol.
