For some time now I have the feeling of lump in throat which is getting worse. Have heartburn but not all the time,bloating excessive gas, The lump in visiable on my right side of throat where my thyroid is. I do have nodules and a goiter which are small and being watched. Going to gastro dr next month just woundering if anyone else has this Been to three drs and they all tell me I have acid reflux but the lump is really starting to hurt and getting worse People notice it all the time One nurse told me it is sitting right next to my esophgus and I better get it checked.but have to wait a month for the appt.

Symptoms of Laryngopharyngeal Reflux are:

Continual throat clearing
Chronic throat irritation
Chronic cough
Excessive phlegm the throat
Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
Constant sensation of something in the throat
Swallowed food comes back up
Post nasal drainage
Weak voice
Cracking voice
Blockage of the breathing passage
Spasm of the larynx (voice box)
This condition is a result of both UES and LES not working correctly.
And it is possible not to have typical gerd/acid reflux  symptoms.
