My throat sometimes feels tight. Is this from my acid reflux?
Hi there, Jennifer -
I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I hope you've long since discovered the cause of this problem and gotten some treatment for it. I did some looking around and it does seem like throat tightness, a feeling of being "choked," and other throat issues are often a sign of reflux and GERD. It can also be a sign of stress, according to some experts - it's hard to tell, and I'm only a layperson and can't diagnose the issue.
If you did find out what was causing the symptoms and got treatment for it, perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the symptoms.
Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case. Best of luck to you!

If the burnings gone, it might just be left over anxiety from acid reflux. Give it some time, it may go away, depending on how bad your case of reflux was or is
