Post stuck feeling in back of throat

I recently had an upper GI series. The results showed a small hiatal hernia. I have this feeling like something is stuck in the back of my throat. It is causing me major anxiety to the point that I had to go back on anti depressants. I went back to my primary doctor and she told me there is nothing wrong with my stomach and that I should see a ENT dr to see if something is wrong with my throat. Well I did that and he couldnt find anything wrong either. He suggested waiting 10 days and then calling a gastro dr. I am at my wits end and dont know what to do. I was being checked for acid reflux which did not show up on the gi series, although I have had major heart burn in the past. I am on prilosec right now and have been for about 10 days with no relief of the throat sticking pain, but have no heartburn. Anyone ever experience this feeling like there is something stuck in their throat, and if so did you find out what it was and get relief?

when i had an upper GI they found a small hiatal hernia and he also dilated my esophagus. Sounds weird but it worked.

I STILL feel like that. It has been going on so long too. I have also had an upper GI and my thyroid checked. Nothing was wrong except a little acid reflux, so I went on Axid/Prilosec/Prevacid, not at the same time, but nothing worked. They also said I have anxiety. I am just as confused, although I also have a feeling of something stuck at the bottom of my throat too, in my chest. I also get gurgling in my throat, is that strange? sorry i couldn't be of more help
