Yes, all that jezbo said. I am guessing your diagnosis is laryngopharyngeal reflux, a type of acid reflux that affects the throat and voice box. I am on 40mg of Prilosec twice a day, an hour before breakfast and dinner. Still have the lump in my throat. You can look this up on the net and see if it sounds like what you have. Also, do not eat within about three hours of going to bed. I am sleeping on two pillows to prop myself up some, as using only one causes the acid to come up. Elevating the head of the bed six inches is one recommendation I have read.
