I get this discomfort too. I have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and wonder, if there is a possibility that the Prilosec isn't totally controlling it.
At the base (root) of our tongue is lingual tonsils. A possibility of lingual tonsillitis? Or being it part of the lymphatic system, if thyroid can affect it. If I recall correctly, while were were being formed in the womb, our thyroids began at the base of the tongue and descended down in it's rightful place. I question if we can have residual thyroid tissue there.

Anyway, a few thoughts. I know it probably hasn't help any. That said, I do feel for you.
