    Question Constrictive throat

    I've been diagnosed with GERD for about 6-8 years now. In July I have recently started having problems with my throat. The symptoms are generally constrictive (tightness) of throat and plegmlike feeling in the back of throat. I've had a upper endo and my doctor found some inflammation and after the biopsy was ok he said i have a mild case of egophositis and put me on aciphex. I was on it until a week ago then my prescription coverage failed to cover it. I went on OTC prilosec at the pharmacy's suggestion and a couple days ago the symptoms worsen.

    My question is this cause by change of prescriptions or was it a misdiagnosis by my GI? because I always describe the plegmlike feeling and my GI said it isn't really related to GERD or egophositis and recommended me to see a ENT specialist.

    Can you help me?

I had a upper endo and found two strictures and balooned them for larger opening . My problem is the esphagus won't heal..very raw and red Doc put me on aciphex and am wondering if anyone had this same type problem?
