Feeling a lump in the throat, sore throat, chest pains. EKG normal. Should I be worried?
I have an almost constant sore throat with a lump in the throat sensation. some days it feels normal, others it feels severe. I can see my epiglottis which has a white bumpy ridge on the tip of it. I have random chest pains like something is squeezing my heart or my lungs. I have had 2 ekg s which were normal, I wore a heart monitor for 2 days and that came out normal. My white blood cell count was normal. I have been to the doctor too many times and they say everything seems fine. but I don t feel fine!! any ideas?
you are most probably suffering from GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disorder),so you can take any PPI like tab parit (rabiprazole) one tab in morning at empty stomac. You can confirm the diagnosis by Upper G.I.Endoscopy.
