GERD, persisting feeling of lump in throat, tightness in chest, trembling chest and arm muscles, get relief on eating. Normal barium swallow test, taken Nexium. What am I suffering from?

Hi, I have feeling some lump in my throat for a long time. My doc said I am suffering from GERD . He prescribed me medicine, Nexium and spray for throat inflammation , but no improvement. I still feel lump and it s like gotten worse. Once my throat or neck gets tight, my chest would also feel tight. It s terrible at night and in addition, I could feel my chest and arm muscles are shivering . I had barium swallow and the result was normal. What could I be suffering from? Almost everyday, I feel this and it s very annoying. Eating is a kind of comfort for me, but i cannot eat all the time, of course. Help please... T.T I don t have enough money to undergo other expensive tests....

WELCOME TO HCM.
UR DOC IS VERY CORRECT IN SAYING THAT U R SUFFERING FROM GERD.
ITS THE ACID FROM UR STOMACH COMING TO UR THROAT THAT IS GIVING U ALL THE TROUBLE. ITS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM NOW A DAYS. EVERY OTHER PERSON IS SUFFERING FROM IT. ITS THE SEVERITY OF DISEASE THAT VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON. IT CAN BE CONTROLLED VERY EASILY. U NEED TO FOLLOW A GOOD DIETARY SCHEDULE AND SOME LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS TO GET RELIEVED OF UR SYMPTOMS. TRY FOLLOWING THIS;-
AVOID TEA, COFFEE, COLD DRINKS, HOT AND SPICY FOOD.
AVOID OVEREATING, FASTING FOR LONG HOURS (NOT MORE THAN 3 HOURS AT A TIME),
TAKE SMALL FREQUENT MEALS
ADD MILK, FRESH FRUITS AND SALAD TO UR DIET
DO EXERCISES DAILY BUT AVOID ABDOMINAL CRUNCHING EXERCISES
AVOID SLEEPING FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS POST MEALS
AVOID STRESS, ANXIETY- IT WILL INCREASE ACID REGURGITATION.
ELEVATE HEAD END OF UR BED
ALONG WITH NEKSIUM TAKE AN ANTACID GEL ALSO.
U WILL FEEL MUCH BETTER IN 8-10 DAYS TIME.
