Question
I have had this constant feeling of lump in my throat and now what seems to feel like excessive gas pressure in my thorat, I feel a sudden spasm or movement and then it seems to be followed with a burp. But there are times where I can't seem to burp and it feels stuck in my thorat , which causes pressure, I really don't have any burning in my thorat, and if I do get it , it is very mild. My stomach also feels a bit of a burning senstation and pressure and when I feel like this I often have back pain.

Hi and thanks for the query,
The symptoms you describe suggest first a gastric irritation of active peptic ulcer disease and a probable gastro esophagal reflux disease. This means that acidic fluid from the stomach is certainly moving up to the throat (esophagus) and irritating it).
This situation left untreated for a long time leads to wounds and improper healing in the throat. This caused a reduction in the diameter of the throat and gives a sensation of either a lump or pain at times.
I suggest you XXXXXXX a gastroenterologist for proper evaluation, endoscopic examinations and management.
taking an appointment with gastroenterologist is a bright idea.
I will glad answering further questions if need be.
thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.

Hand thanks for the query,
That is the classical presentation of gastric ulcers. Usually a pain the irradiates to the back, very probable.
