Question: I am having a weired problem going on in my mouth:

1. I feel pain in my throat and feeling streched nerves in my throat.
2. Something is happening in my throat which is making me swallow like reflex for no reason even though i have nothing in my mouth. My mouth gets dry because of this.
3. While this swallow reflex i am having pressure on my hard and soft palates like soft palate do not want this swallow reflex to happen and soft and hard palate feel preasure and feels like it blocks airflow and troat get tighten on that moment then i have to open my mouth and suck on saliva ir drink some sips of water to breathe normally or else if feel like i am getting choked.
4. When i suck on candy like halls and strepsils i kinda feel bit of relief not completely but candy helps me lower down this uncontrollable reflex of swallow.
5. I am gwtting some sour fluid reflex as well from my stomach into my mouth sometime like once or twice a day.

I am totally restless in this condition. I cannot lay down to sleep. If i do all the rhings that i told above gets on extreme level and then i have to jump out of bed or sit down to breathe as palates do not let me breathe when that reflex keeps on happening then i feel soft palate and throat getting pressure and get blocked then i cannot breathe then i have to ait straight and open mouth and suck on saliva or drink some water to remove that choking feeling.

Please help.

Brief Answer:
Could be LPRD.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I had gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.

Without physical examination, I wouldn't be able to recognize the cause behind the symptoms, however based on your description it may be related to LPRD. That is reflux of gastric contents into pharynx and larynx.

I recommend the following suggestions
1) Avoid smoking and alcohol.
2) Avoid spicy and junk food.
3) Avoid coffee and tea.
4) Keep regular diet habits.
5) Take your dinner at least 2 hours before bed time.
6) Proton pump inhibitors like tablet rabeprazole.
7) Drink adequate water after each meals.

I would monitor the condition for couple of months while you follow aforementioned suggestions. The next plan of action can be decided according to how you respond.
You will be fine.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
Wish you a good health and speedy recovery.
