Esophagus feeling tight after having pot brownie. Putting more effort on breathing. Reason?

Hi doctor, so last friday i ate a pot brownie for the first time. Normal high, nothing bad. Next day, at night, i was eating a large sandwich when i felt like my esophagus was a bit tight. Like something was stuck in my throat . I ve had this for a week. I can swallow , eat, breathe normally, but breathing takes slightly more effort than normal. After i eat, i feel like something is tight in my chest , it s not painful but it s annoying. What do you think this is? No i don t do any other drugs, never had this feeling before, no puking or any other symptoms.

Pulmonologist 's  Response
It seems you have developed esophagitis because of the gastro esophageal reflux disease. In this condition the acid from stomach regurgitates into the esophagus because of the loose valve between the stomach and esophagus. This acid can then cause inflammation in the esophagus and that`s what is happening in your case. Take a PPI like omeprazole or pantaprazole 20 min before breakfast for 2 to 4 weeks. You may also take sucralfate 3 tsf 10 min before each meal. Avoid oily and spicy food.

Hi there. What you have is Laryngopharyngoreflux(LPR) secondary to gastro esophageal reflux. Got to get the acid from coming up to your throat.
