A Lump In The Throat And Chest?

Hello Ichy, Thank you for the question.
Your complaint can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD can occur if the muscles in the lower part of the esophagus weaken, causing stomach acid to rise again into the esophagus. This condition can cause a number of symptoms in sufferers such as heartburn or chest pain that feels like burning or heat, shortness of breath, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, belching, dry cough, lump in the neck. Aside from GERD, your complaints can also be caused by other conditions such as strep throat, tonsillitis, Zenker's diverticulum.
It is recommended that you consult a doctor immediately for further examination. The doctor needs to ask about your further complaints and your medical history and then examine you to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given by a doctor according to the condition that you are experiencing.
