Get lump in throat a day after exercising, discomfort increases by the day, tightness in chest. Suggestions?

Why do I get a lump in my throat the day after I exercise? I m fine in the morning, but as the day goes on the discomfort increases and even gives me feelings of tightness in the chest . I ve had a stress test with no problems. It seems to correlate very closely with aerobic excercise - 30 minutes on the eliptical. Strength training does not have this effect.

Thanks for choosing H.C.M. for query

By your query I came to know that you are feeling a lump in the throat after exercise, this discomfort increases as the day passes. You are also having tightness in chest though stress test are normal.

Since your stress test are normal and your problems are more marked in the evening hours while in morning you have nothing, This clearly indicates that here anxiety is playing important role. Thus you are supposed to have anxiety induced gastritis.

To confirm it and to manage it you should do-

1- Upper G.I. endoscopy.

2- Complete cardiac examination and investigations.

Till you are waiting for meeting wiht specialist you may take-

1- Antacid with PPI.

2- Angiolytic drugs.

I hope this will help you.
