Blocked throat

Hi all,

I feel like my throat is constantly trapped - kind of like I need to burp (but I don't need to). It's worse when I life down. I can feel it at the very top of my chest but mainly my throat and it's making me feel really off. I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Could it be heartburn? Any advice appreciated! x

It sounds like acid reflux. I had this all throughout my pregnancy. Still do sometimes.

It's so uncomfortable isn't it - did you find anything that helped? x

It's a horrible feeling. Ruined my cravings.
I drank so much gaviscon. Only thing I could take and it did help a little. Ask the doc if it's ok for you to take and try it.

Great thanks so much! x

Same here. Last night I actually woke up choking because of reflux - couldn't breathe for about 20 seconds - it was horrible! And so sick of drinking Gaviscon!

Ugh I feel for you - it's really making me feel bad! Gaviscon doesn't seem to help me much but I don't know what else to do! Hope you feel better soon x
