Feels like something is stuck in throat and continious Burping

Hello Everyone !!

Sorry for my English, as I am not a Native Speaker.

From Mid-March 2020 suddenly I felt like something got stuck in my throat and that Feels when I sallow my saliva. I didn't take this too seriously but after a week at midnight, I suddenly started burping. That night it was too hard or difficult to burp but after 2-3 days later it becomes easy for me to burp and today it's September 2020 I am having the same symptoms. 1 month ago (August), lump in my throat went away but burping is till today. I burp after and before eating and in day time as well and after I burp my lump in throat goes away. feels like gas is stuck in the throat. When I sleep in don't get Burp but after standing I get 3-4 times burp. I have also pins and needle pains in the arms and neck area sometimes.  Due to the COVID pandemic, I am unable to visit a doctor but in this, between I took different types of acid reduction medicine over the counter because when I explained my symptoms the pharmacy person said its all because of gastric. But until I visit to the doctor I m worried. I am controlling a lot in food and I am getting better than before. I have developed symptoms of flatulence also.  

so my question, is this a serious disease? Is it really a acid reflux or any other disease.
All I am worried about is about HIV/AIDS because I had protected sex with a commercial sex worker ( As I am Petty Sure condom didn't Fail) on December 17th, 2019 and these symptoms started after the 3 months ( I mean Mid March 2020 ). Could this be a HIV/AIDS symptoms? I am very worried. Please Can anybody Help me...

This sounds like symptoms of GERD.  Yes it is acid reflux most likely.  Easily treatable.  Losing a little weight, not eating at night before bed, cutting own on fatty food and avoiding acidic foods.  An over the counter acid reducer also can really help.  Try a drug store for what they have, ask the pharmacist.  oh ya, sure they've already told you, you had absolutely ZERO risk for HIV by having protected sex.  Don't ask about that here.  And that has zero to do with your issues.  You have classic gerd/acid reflux symptoms.

Thank you so Much, as you said, Since 3-4 months I have been controlling a lot in my diet and take food in proper time. Medicine didnt worked as I expected so I changed in my diet. Lump or stuck feeling in my throat went away but I still feels very little noticeable in morning time only for 1-2 hours and after it goes away for whole day. I used to burp a lot like 10 times in a hour and since 1 month I started not making my stomach empty ( I mean I started having breakfast which i didnt used to ) and burping is like now 25-30 times in a whole day. I can say its decreasing day by day. I dont get afraid of GERD/ACID REFLUX or LPR or even cancer but only I afraid of HIV which I mentioned you earlier in above post.
Thank you !!!
