Have pain and blockage in throat and chest. Should I worry?

since 15-20 days, i have been suffering from acidity and indigestion, now started with mild pain in the throat and some kind of blockage in throat and chest which makes very incomfortable. I am referring a family physician, my digestion problem is little improved but the throat discomfort has started since couple of days. Could you please suggest me to which doctor i should consult and is there could be any medical emergency for these symptoms i have?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your uery regarding feeling of blockage and mild pain in throat , though you are already suffering from acidity and indigestion for last 15 to 20 days.

Considering your symptoms in all aspect it seems to be due to GERD (gastro esophageal reflex disorder). To treat this situation you should avoid spicy food, if smoker than should leave this habbit, and advice to take bland diet, as far as drugs are concernsd you can take long acting antacids and P.P.I.

I hope above medication will help you.

With Regards.
