sensation of a bubble in throat
I have the sensation of a bubble in my throat. It is sometimes associated with a tight/heavy feeling in the middle of my chest.  It does seem that burping can lesse it some but it comes back quickly. Also, I burp ALOT- way more than normal!!

Is this GERD?  I have heard of a disorder of the small intestine that causes an unnatural accumulation (or reduced absorption) of gas so that it backs up much more than it normally would. Does anyone have similar symptoms or heard of the small intestine explanation??

Hi Patti113,
The symptoms you have mentioned can occur in GERD.

You can have the following tests done to confirm the diagnosis -

1. An upper GI endoscopy
2. 24 hours pH monitoring
