Suggest Remedies For Lump In The Throat
may be gastroesophageal reflux
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Heartburn, difficulty swallowing are most commonly related to gastroesophageal reflux.
It can also cause bloating, nausea, vomiting, acid taste in the mouth, excess salivation, regurgitation of food.
Some persons may have a persistent dry cough due to reflux
Treatment involves lifestyle changes and medication. Lifestyle changes include--(1) small portions instead of large amounts of food
(2)avoid spicy/acidic/fried foods including tomato,onion, caffeine products, mint
(3)wait at least 2 hours after eating before laying down
(4)weight loss of any excess weight because it compresses and forces food upwards
Medications such as nexium, prilosec, prevacid etc can be used to help with these symptoms though they can take 5 to 7 days, in some cases, to have an effect.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
