A Lump In The Throat And Its Relation To GERD?
Hello, r nSy want to ask .. r nSy has been experiencing acid reflux for a long time. Not long ago I took an appendicogram test, the results were chronic appendicitis together with my acid reflux disease. I often have headaches, weakness and feel a lump in my throat. A lump in the throat but not painful. This hasn’t gone away for years, even though I don’t have a stomachache. If you touch the throat, always want to vomit? R nMy question is, is my esophagus normal? Is it related to my gerd? What specialists do I need treatment for? And which one should I precede, my chronic appendicitis or my throat that is blocked? thank you
