Not too sure what category to put this question under

Since Sunday, I thought I had heartburn and took pepto.  3 days later, I feel like I have something in my chest, but can really feel it when I make a motion to swallow and when I swallow....in my throat as well as in my chest.  It feels like there is something there...did you ever eat something and it gets stuck.....you drink something it goes away.  This hasnt.  I am in no pain and I can eat and drink with no problem, but I still have these symptoms.  Should I be worried?

Hi,
Stickiness in throat and problems with swallowing are less common symptoms of GERD.
Consider taking PPI and modifying lifestyles .

Lifestyle modifications -
1. Head elevation while sleeping
2. Small frequent meals
3. Going to bed 2- 3 hours after food
4. Avoiding bed time snacks
5. Avoiding smoking and alcohol
6. Avoiding tight fitting clothes
7. Avoiding cola, citrus drinks, carbonated drinks, tea, coffee, spicy food
8. Weight reduction
