  • Hello

    I bet you feel relief now that you know it is nothing sinister and yes I think the stress of the other procedure could have brought it on 

    I have been suffering from the same kind of feeling as well as having indigestion in my throat only , nearly been driving me mad , my Doctor has said she believes I am suffering from the same thing and she did say there is nothing you can do about it but if I wanted I could be tested because normally once people know that is what it is they find it starts to go away , not sure if this is true or not and sorry I cannot be more helpful but will be interested to see if any other members have some advice on this one as I shall be curious to :-)

    Take Care x

  • Hi Leanne I have had this for 4 weeks, I thought it was omoprazole that caused it so I came off them for which they were prescribed for acid reflux, I am taking gaviscon now and seems to work, but this swallowing is doing my nut in, I do get anxiety and numerous other things all related to peri menopause and was told that this is probably yet another sympton that us poor wladies have to go through, I am managing with everything else, just!!!!! But this is doing my nut. Xx

  • I have just been online and there are exercises that you can do for your throat so I'm gonna give it a go. X
