I have been experiencing tightness in my throat for almost a month now. It almost feels as if someone is pressing down on the right side of my throat. At other times it feels like there's a lump in my throat. I have been seeing an ENT and had a barium swallow done and they concluded that I had acid reflux. I've been on protonix for about 2 weeks now. I'm just curious is this feeling of tightness in the neck common with GERD? I can't help but feel like its something else. I had a scan of my thyroid done and there was nothing seen there. The thyroid tests also show everything within "normal range". Thanks in advance
