Tight Throat? Reflux?

I just don't know. I've been on Nexium for a year now and just can't know if I actually have it. I don't have heartburn and I had a ph test and it was inconclusive. But the only symptom I have is TIGHT THROAT on occasion, like the throat is closing up on me. It doesn't but some say it could be acid reflux. The ENT noticed red throat, like reflux. Gastro doc did endoscopy and nothing found. He questions if it really is reflux. Seems like perhaps I get it if I'm not on Nexium. I think though that I am getting side effects from Nexium so I'm afraid to stay on it. Have had vision problems and menopause out of the blue (which I'm young 42 years old, not impossible but I think it's related possibly).

Just wondering how many of you have tight throat as only symptom.

Have you had your thyroid checked?
There was a period of time when, after I was diagnosed with GERD/LPR, that I still felt a tightness in my throat.
It turned out to be my thyroid...they did a blood test and an ultrasound and confirmed that I had an autoimmune disease with goiter.

Just a thought.

Re: Tight Throat? Reflux?

Well, the ent said it could be redness from acid reflux or sinus. Oh thanks. Really conclusive.
