Throat pain, taking Nexium, swollen tongue. Help

ENT said I had LPR... Gas specialist that did my scope said my sphectors where working fine and I don t have LPR. It all started with a cramping sensation on the right side of my throat followed by some numbness and difficulty is swallowing for about 5 minutes. A month past and then the other side of my neck started to hurt... just briefly but would go away... then both started to hurt. My neck under my chin and on both sides of my throat hurtsLike it can t relax. I have allergies and take meds for this daily. When my tongue hurts or feels swollen... i just assume it is my allergies. I have had some clearing of the throat because of that and I have felt a lump in my throat. But not often and it is usually gone if I calm down. My throat hurts on the sides... like by the opening of my throat and I yawn alot. Sometimes it feels like I am pulling scabes apart when I yawn. I have been on Nexium for years and they just put me on dexilant. I have changed my diet and my sleeping habits... even lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks! THey are going to do a CT scan on my monday to see if I have stones... which I wondered if that was the sensation I felt months ago...
