    does anyone else have this throat clogging feeling? does your throat hurt?

    I have been on protonix for about 3 months (I stoped counting at week 11)
    i guess I started in June sometime. On June 9th my heartburn began. I am 33.

    I have had 'post nasel drip" everyday in the afternoon for about a week. I am waiting for it to get better because i also post to the anxiety board and a tight throat is a symptom of anxiety. So i am left wondering if i the anxiety is adding to my throat problem. I am also left wondering why i have PND and no nose stuffiness. AHHHHHHH.
    I hardly ever feel heartburn anymore (if i take my protonix) but if i stop after 2 days i am in pain.

    does anyone else have this throat clogging feeling? and does your throat muscles/tendons(not sure what is hurting) hurt?

    to make matters worse i am in the middle of the rabies series vacination and i was worried my throat problem was due to rabies.

    i wish i could fast forward to a month from now.

    Anxiety is most definitely a big fat aggravator of any disease. GERD or LPR symptoms can sometimes be multiplied by 50% if you are you stressed or feel anxiety about your problem. It's almost impossible to *not* worry, I mean my goodness!!! But please try, it's in your best interest!!!!

    Every now and then I get pains in my neck, but then again I crack it a lot so that could be the problem. I take calcium magnesium chewables for a tight feeling at the front of my throat.

    Hi anonymous,

    How do calcium magnesium chewables help with your throat tightness.

    Re: does anyone else have this throat clogging feeling? does your throat hurt?

    since i started the candida type diet and watching everything very carefully, my burning is almost gone unless i eat the wrong things..but my breathing issues are still there! it feels like a restriction and/or heaviness feeling, which feels like its coming from my throat..im in the process of getting a lot of tests for it..but if it IS stress/anxiety, there's absolutely nothing I can do about it myself..i have 0 stresses in my life now, the only one really being my health issues..im tempted to try some type of relaxant or something (even though i dont want to and hate prescriptions) so see if that works and it maybe is anxiety or stress. if it is, it's so subconsious that i can do nothing about it. it doesnt get much more care-free and stress-free than the way ive been doing things for the last 4-5 months..gabivoss, does it affect your breathing as well, or just your throat hurts?

    Stoney,

    I have the same throat constriction, difficulty breathing. I've had a lot of tests performed: allergy, respiratory, xrays, scope, etc etc. So tests look fine, then the doctors will say it must be stress or anxiety because they have no medical explanation to give you. Only problem I have with that is, I have anxiety 24/7 for months now? An internal medicine/pulmonary specialist I am seeing now, after examination said my lungs are fine but something is causing the throat/neck airway problem. Whether its allergy, environmental, acid related, or other is yet to be determined. My symptoms are shortness of breath, post nasal drip, nasal congestion, thick mucous in throat, pains between shoulder blades, throat irritation and constriction, extreme dryness in mouth. I also have constant belching/burping and can taste liquid coming up when I burp. Also a history of stomach disorders so I'm leaning towards acid problems. Maybe you should ask your doc for an acid ph test.

    Hi Hp8,

    Yes, the calcium magnesium does help my throat tightness. I went to a natural path a while ago, and he did a calcium deficiency test and I was WAY below where I should've been. You can really feel the difference, at least with me.

    I would check into LPR if I were you. It's a form of acid reflux that matches you and your symptoms well.

    I have LPR and had all the same symptoms you describe. I take two PPI's a day and now my ENT has me on 300 mg of zantac before bed. Life gets a whole lot better when you do this.

    Re: does anyone else have this throat clogging feeling? does your throat hurt?

    I've got a sore throat, lump in throat, dry burning eyes, back & neck pain, sore tongue at times, headache, flush, hot face, stomach ache at night, bloating, fatigue......... I have no Heartburn. I think it's LPR. My (EX) Ent says it's regular Gerd & says to take motrin & prilocec OTC - no help - I told him I have LPR - he said no I dont. So I went to my regular Doctor with literature (Doctors don't like it when you tell them what you have) & I got him to write a prescription for Protonix, but my insurance wont pay & I cant afford 6 bucks a pill. So right now I have to live with it - I take Tums & Maalox to hopefully reduce acid - but it doesnt help with my symptoms.

    I have a similar problem. I get eosophegeal spasms, tight throat, and bloating in the stomach. My stomach becomes bloated and I cannot take a deep breath. I think a lot of my problems can be attributed to a bad habbit of repeated deep breathing. By feeling restricted (breathing) I gasp for air too much.

    had the 24ph already, im getting the results this wk. i had to test over a month ago, but of course hold ups with the doctors office's. im in the process of tests for everything, no prob with anything yet, and i doubt any test WILL show anything..i have the burning throat under control now, with 2 nexium and a strict 'candida' type diet, which is good for acid reflux too. even though i dont think candida is my prob, but i was on a lot of antibiotics in the past for acne..if it is anxiety or stress related (the breathing, which is my main symptom by far), there's nothing more i can do about it in my head. i have 0 anxiety or stresses in my life. live at home, great family, no job (im on unemployment), great few friends, i meditate and yoga, i dont care about anything. my only prob is my health, mainly breathing issues..my primary gave me buspar. if my breathing is from subconsious anxiety or stress issues (which i can do nothing more about myself), would something like buspar help it maybe?

    strictly no sugar, no yeast type stuff. its basically meats and vegetables. look it up what to and not to eat. kinda hard to find stuff without and sugar and/or yeast/gluten, but its do-able.

    No gluten. I eat a ton of bread, pastry type buns, cookies/biscuits all day long. I tried wheat/gluten free cookies gut you need to drink a ton of warer ir they get stuck in your throat.
    Maybe I'll try to off the breads for a week.
