This has been going on for a year now. I have a tightness or swollen feeling on the left side of my neck. Nothing visual it just feels that way. I had a ct scan of my neck that looked normal. I was diagnosed with acid reflux and was given nexium. I did not seem to help. any ideas??
This feeling of tightness could be due to acid reflux. 24 hours pH monitoring test may be done for confirmation.
In addition to nexium lifestyle modifications are also essential which include
1. Weight reduction if obese
2. Avoiding bedtime snacks
3. Eating small frequent meals
4. Going to bed at least 2-3 hours after food
5. Avoiding coffee, chocolate, cola, citrus, tomato, alcohol and smoking
