Sounds like GERD.  I had the same symptoms, felt like if I swallowed REAL hard it would go away.  I was "scoped" and the ENT said the "flap" (for lack of a better word) between my stomach and esophagus was inflamed, due to the regurgitating stomach acid.  He recommended I stay away from......chocolate, coffee,alcohol,(taking all of the fun out of life here...)carbonated beverages and suggested I take Maalox before meals and at bedtime.  In addition, no food at least 2 hours before going to bed.  He suggested this regimen for 10 days (it lasted about 2 days) but I felt much better.  I keep Tums or Rolaids with me all the time, in case I have a flare up.  Best to check with an ENT if you can.  Hope this helps!

When you feel the lump coming up, stick a finger in your throat and tickle the extreme back of your tong.  It makes you belch strongly without throwing up.  Gives instant relieve.  A small teaspoon of creamy peanut butter then also helps me. Barend

I have a weird feeling in my throat as well but it sounds different from you guys. I hope you can help.

Sometimes I get a real bad pressure and pain in my upper back that radiates through to my upper chest. Sometimes it last for a few minutes other times it hangs on for an hour or so at a time. My throat feels a little weird (like slight constriction) when it happens as well.

What could be wrong with me?
