Lump in throat, goes away on burping, worse after drinking mountain dew. Cause?

hi i have been having what feels like a lump in my throat for a few days now when i burp it goes away for awhile. i was just wondering what it could be. i do not have any pain or anything with it, i do smoke about a pack of cigarettes a day, and i have noticed it seems worse after i drink a mountain dew, could the caffeine have something to do with this?

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are having increased acid and gas production.
You should follow some precautions like :-
1. Avoid carbonated drinks.
2. Avoid spicy and oily foods.
3. Do not miss a meal.
4. Avoid mental and emotional stress.
5. Avoid cigarette smoking and alcohol, if any.
6. Avoid excessive coffee and tea.
7. Drink lots of pure water daily.

You can take antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once a day before breakfast along with Domperidone 10 mg for relief from your symptoms.

You should also get an Endoscopy done for further evaluation.
I hope this is helpful to you.
