hello and welcome to HCM,

Without any doubt if you feel that there is something stuck in your throat and you are feeling that pricking sensation then you must definitely consult an ENT and may be even ask for an upper GI endoscopy.

In the meanwhile you may also start anti reflux medications in consultation with your doctor for proper symptom control.

Take only warm fluids
