I also recently have a constant tightness in my throat I’ve been having for quite some time (since mid Dec 05). I feel a constant need to swallow. When I swallow I don’t feel like I am able to completely swallow all my saliva and therefore my reflex is to swallow again. It feels like there is something stuck there. My throat is tight and I feels tired from so much swallowing. After I swallow I feel that there is some gas coming up. The G.P. gave me Omapradex (for reflux symptoms, but this only calms my stomach a little, it does not stop the belching or swallowing.
I find that I am burping or passing gas a great deal too due to the constant swallowing. Sometimes when I burp I feel a bit of relief from the tightness.
Food swallowing makes it feel better for short periods of time.
Since this has started I have lost about 20lbs in weight, and lately have little appetiteand increasing heartburn. I have been allergy tested so I am avoiding the foods that I cannot eat. I did an endoscopy in July 2002 and also the Barium Swallow which came up basically clear. My gastro told (Jan 19, 2006) that it's all in my mind go home and relax.
Can anyone help me get relief.
Did np get any relief ?
