Lump in throat

What can be causing this sensation?

If you are having problems with acid reflux, the sensation could be globus. It's a 'feeling' of something in the throat - like a lump. If this is the reason, you need to work with your doc to try to bring the reflux under control.

Hi ive been having this "lump in throat sensation" for a month now its so annoying i dont have trouble breathing or swallowing food....but it is hard to swallow my saliva. The feeling gets alot  worse at night. I also have acid reflux. I try to burp alot to relieve the feeling but it dosent work. It feels like a tight necklace around my neck. i dont know how to get rid of this.. maybe its GERD? but i dont know im kinda scared because it will not go away. VERY ANNOYING. Help please?? Thank you

If you have acid reflux, you need to check with your doc and start some treatment. That sensation is probably not going to disappear until you get the reflux under control.
