It's that annoying little lump feeling that will not go down with a swallow, sort of annoying when i swallow saliva cause I feel it. I used to always chug water after workouts or when thirsty, but throat closes up like it doesn't want it (like trying to force yourself to eat, and keep trying to eat sort of feeling) and after I eat (no issues while eating) I burp a lot. But if I put stomach effort into the burp, then some watery acidic vomit will hit the back of the throat and i have to hold it down, then i'm fine...but still have the lump. I feel fine other than that, so it's not like a sinus infection or anything. Mother is suggesting Prevacid, and i'm on my second dose, i have a day or two to go to see if it will work. I'm just curious if anyone knows exactly what would help or what it is? Also I have used smokeless tobacco for the past 9 months, and very light with cigarettes and cigars, so I doubt throat cancer considering I'm 19 and cancer isn't noticeable in beginning stages, and what I have now was out of nowhere after waking up one morning. Thanks.
