    Feeling of something stuck in throat

    Hi all,

    for the last 1 1/2 years i have had the sensation of something stuck in my throat right below my larnyx on the left side. Occasionally my left ear hurts or feels full (like there is pressure). I can hear fine though. I have been to two ENT's who both but a scope down. The first one said he didnt see anything. The second one said my larnyx was red he also looked deep inside my ear with that super microscope thingy they use. He had me hold me nose and blow out my ear, and swallow. he said my eardrum was not moving when I performed these tests. He said i have no signs indicating cancer. I have ALOT of indegestion, acid regurgitation, and burping. can indigestion cause a feeling of something stuck in throat??? like i said, its way up, right below my larnyx. should I try something like prevacid??? what about the ear thing, can indigestion cause any problems like that??

    I have exactly the same thing only on the right side. I know at one time I swallowed a huge vitamin pill and it stuck for a while. The doctor said I probably scratched my throat and caused an irritation. I have GERD and when my reflux is bad so is the throat feeling and pain in the ear. I have read many messages on GERD support boards by others who have the same thing.

    I've got this problem right now. My Reflux/GERD has flared up, and I'm trying to do what they suggested and take my Tagamet twice a day. But,I feel like pills and things are getting stuck in my throat, and I feel like I have scraped it somehow.

    It is very annoying and I can't see anything to do about it but let it heal.

    Here is something interesting. It's probobaly not the case but what the heck.
    I have had swallowing trouble for years and recently found a doctor that is very interested in it. Since I live close to the Canadian Border he asked me if I had any French-Canadian in me. I do not, but he went on to explain that there is a swallowing malady that effects only French-Canadians and the difficulty is in the upper portion of the throat. Just thought I'd throw that into the mix. Good luck

    Have you had your thyroid tested? Feelining like something stuck in your throat is a symptom and it could explain why they didin't see anything when looking down your throat. Acid reflux is also a symptom of thyroid disease. You may want to look at the thyroid board and see if you can relate to any of the other symptoms.

    Good Luck!!!

    I had the same sensation of something being stuck in my throat for the last 3 years. Been to 2 Gastroenteroligist(sp?), accupuncture, and have taken nexium, aciphex, and herbs. The only difference between today and in the beginning, is now I have heartburn & intergestion to go along with the sensation. Trying magnesium and calcium and praying this is the answer to my problem.

    CantFind12 can you tell me what doctor told you about the problem that French Canadians have with swallowing. I've been to numerous doctors who can't find anything wrong with me but I still have problems swallowing.

    Re: Feeling of something stuck in throat

    I have had a feeling of a lump in my throat for 18 months. It has been diagnosed as Globus Hystericus, which is so frustrating as this is a stress related problem and I am not stressed! I am on Citalopram and something for reflux and it seems to have got rid of it for now.
