Hi,

As per your query, you have symptoms of a feeling of food stuck in the throat which is due to bacterial infection leading to strep throat and could be due to acid reflux.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you avoid cold carbonated beverages. You should take antihistamines and antibiotic combination as the infection is present. Do warm saline gargles 3 to 4 times a day. Take ibuprofen one tablet twice daily. Take a small diet and in smaller proportion and have a walk after every meal. Take soft foods to avoid irritation to the throat. Throat lozenges one every 4 hours is helpful. Drink lukewarm water throughout the day as it can provide relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
