Out of nowhere today I am experiencing a sensation of something stuck in my throat. Like when a pill gets temporarily stuck. It's low, almost in my chest bone area. What is this? It's really annoying. I'm not stressed or anxious, I don't get heartburn or digestion problems usually. I did have the same thing for months when I was pregnant a few years ago. Driving me mad
What you are describing sounds exactly like acid reflux. Acid Reflux is also a common thing in pregnancy, which explains why you felt it then as well. I suffer from GERD and when I get a flare up the most common symptom is feeling like I have something lodged in my chest or throat.
Has the feeling all day yesterday again. Hard to describe but a sensation of something in the base of my throat/top of chest, like I need to swallow it down, slightly burny rising sensation but no actual pain, no acid taste or anything like that, no cramps or feeling sick. Actually feels like it's in the top of my neck/between top of shoulder blades too. Weird. Tried Gaviscon, rennies and ranitidine, they have made no difference. Drink lots of water, no difference. Went to bed and felt much worse as soon as I lay down flat, definite feeling of bubbling, something moving up from chest to throat. Propped myself up for a bit. Then it stopped, lay down and fell asleep, woke up this morning feeling fine. Had something to eat before attempting a hot drink, it came back as soon as I ate a small biscuit. It's so weird. The only other time I ever had this was in pregnancy. I'm not pregnant though.
I'm missing most of the symptoms for gerd, not sure it's that. Basically a feeling that I haven't fully swallowed something, relieved shortly by a burp but then comes straight back, and a radiating pain between my shoulder blades. Nothing in my stomach at all
