Constant Feeling of Something in Throat

Updated on June 8, 2010

Constant Feeling of Something in Throat

 Do you have a feeling that there is something in your throat that won’t go away? This constant feeling of something in your throat is one of the primary signs of GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. Which is an abnormal reflux of the esophagus that causes damage to the tissue and/or lining in the esophagus.. It’s also known as acid reflux. Acid reflux or GERD is when the acids in your stomach make their way back up your throat during the digestive process. It is generally cause by diet choices and can be corrected if caught in time. Or more clearly stated, you do not have to experience the damaging of tissue if you correct diet before the symptoms of acid reflux gets any worse. Granted the cause of a constant feeling of something in your throat is not always what you eat but it is the first place to start keeping a log and making changes if necessary. Recently some studies have shown that acid reflux is caused by not having enough acid in your stomach to process or digest the foods that you eat. The more common name of what you may be feeling is heartburn. Now historically heartburn was not associated with a feeling of something in the throat but the initial onset of acid reflux is simply what we call heartburn. A family member of mine complained about a constant feeling of something in her throat for the longest time. When she finally went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Acid Reflux she didn’t believe it. She was just not certain that acid reflux could cause the sensation that she was feeling in her throat. She was prescribed Nexium for her symptoms and to her surprise the symptoms did go away. I am not advocating any medication here as I believe in eating healthy and exercising to feel your best.

If you are having this constant feeling of something in your throat, see your doctor for a proper exam and diagnosis. You may have to try a two or three medications before finding the one that right for you or it may be as simple as changing your diet. Whatever it is, you are not alone and relief is truly on the way. Another thing to keep in mind is that GERD or acid reflux and turn into something worse if not taken care of so see your doctor as soon as possible to get on the road to comfort again.
