Re: acid reflux or globus ??

Hmmmm I am not quite sure how to answer this really.

I suffer with GERD/Acid Reflux. I take 2 150mg Ranitidine tablets a day for it and have done for a few years now.

With me when my reflux started out it was just like heart burn, constant burning in the chest. When taking medication though there isn't really any burning, just the feeling of fluid coming up into your throat often and the feeling of needing to burp which brings it up. When I don't take my tablet now sometimes I won't feeling any burning in my chest at all but get an irratating slight burning kind of sensation in my upper throat which reminds me to take a tablet even though I don't feel the chest burning! Which is annoying!

That is my experience with Reflux, don't know if that will help you seperate the feeling of Globus H though?

I don't think GERD/Acid Reflux ever goes. People talk about changing your diets etc and life style. I've tried dieting in different kinds of ways but it didn't work for me. Infact I felt better eating the No No food compared to eating the so called good foods at times.

It's hard to say what your symptons are really, could be a psychological thing, could be reflux as not all people get the heartburn sensation.. Theres also Nasal Drip etc.

Do get a stuffy nose? Sometimes your nose can run down your throat and cause your throat to feel dry or sore. Then as well you might find you get more phlegm stuck in your throat.
