    Default Acid Reflux

    What does reflux feel like? I thought it was what I was feeling now I'm begining to wonder if its my gum stuck in my esophagus some where. Whenever I drink there is a part in my throat that burns & sharp, shooting pain that follows fluid all the way down. It almost feels like something is blocking my throat.

    Not sure. My throat felt funny for a few days too. Maybe from the tube in the throat during surgery? Anyone else have an idea?

    Not reflux. This soon after your surgery, it sounds just like I did. My guess was that my throat was irritated from the tubes they put down it.

    I am having the same problem and I Am almost one month out from surgery. It showed up two weeks ago and my Dr thought it was acid reflux so he put me on panteloc. However that was one week ago and it still feels like something is always caught in my throat. I have been unable to take my oral meds and I suffer from depression so needless to say I Am not doing well. I see the surgeon on Tues and I Am going to request some testing be done. As this is seriously affecting my life. Hope it all works out for you.

    I'm sorry you are having a tough time. I just deal with the pain when I'm drinking. I'm concerned with dehydrating and I don't want to end up in hospital. I'm sure if I was on solid foods though it would be a little more difficult. I hope all goes well with your surgeon.
