Brief Answer:
GASTRIC REFLUX DISEASE

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
From the complaints you are probably having gastric acid reflux disease. The tightness in the throat is due to irritation caused by the acid only.
To rule out the post nasal drip, you should get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and send me the picture of your throat.
To help with reflux symptoms, take an antacid like tablet pantoprazole 40 mg unce daily in the morning.
Take small but frequent diets.
Avoid any spicy food and aerated drinks.
Avoid alcohol.
Drink plenty of water.
Avoid a sedentary lifestyle.
I hope my advise proves helpful.
Wishing you a speedy recovery
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Thanks and regards
