pressure on throat

I have a very annoying pressure on the right side of my throat/neck, sometimes hurts a little, not like a sore throat pain though.  When I swallow it makes a gurggle sound in my throat.  

Have had these symptoms since November, doctor said it was acid reflux and put me on prilosec - didn't help!!

Any suggestions of what this maybe caused from??

Thank you!

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Omeprazole is a good drug to combat this. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. Avoid heavy meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bed at least 2 hours after food.

“GERD symptoms are often relieved by over-the-counter, acid-reducing agents called antacids. Common antacids include

    * Alka-Seltzer
    * Maalox
    * Mylanta
    * Pepto-Bismol
    * Riopan
    * Rolaids

Other drugs used to relieve GERD symptoms are anti-secretory drugs such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors. Common H2 blockers are

    * cimetidine (Tagamet HB)
    * famotidine (Pepcid AC)
    * nizatidine (Axid AR)
    * ranitidine (Zantac 75)

Common proton pump inhibitors are

    * esomeprazole (Nexium)
    * lansoprazole (Prevacid)
    * omeprazole (Prilosec, Zegerid)
    * pantoprazole (Protonix)
    * rabeprazole (Aciphex)”

Please discuss with your doctor about trying a combination of medication. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
