lump in throat feeling plus chest pressure

I suffer from acid reflux... I have been on meds for this which has helped with the reflux, but I have had this feeling of a lump in my throat for several months. It feels like the lump you feel when you hold back tears. When I lay down on my back the feeling gets worse... it feels like pressure in my throat and chest. I have to sleep on my side or stomach. I have even started snoring. What do you think is going on?

Hi,
Lump in the throat is one of the symptoms of acid reflux. But there are many other causes of lump in the throat as well.
I would suggest you to undergo tests like upper GI endoscopy and 24 hours pH monitoring for confirming the diagnosis of acid reflux and to rule out other causes.
