Brief Answer: Steam, gargles and anti allergics Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. You seem to have upper respiratory tract infection. Inflammation of the mucosa lined tracts of the body leads to excessive secretions from the mucosal lining. The mucus build up in throat and running nose is because of that so is the gurgling noise. Tingling sensation can be because of irritation in the throat. All these symptoms can be because of allergy also. Please take steam and do saline gargles. Use of anti allergics will help in decreasing secretions and irritation also. If symptoms do not improve or fever starts, please consult an ENT. Feel free to ask another query. Regards

Brief Answer: Can be a cause of dull chest ache Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. Reflux can be cause of dull chest ache especially the central chest but shoulder pain can unlikely be because of reflux. Otherwise there are multiple causes of chest pain which need to be evaluated. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
