Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Thanks for the detailed information.
GERD can cause inflammation of theesophageal lining causing scratchy feeling.
The click noise can be from the throat cartilage stretching.
There is a thyroid cartilage inside the throat just before the vertebra.
If there is asymmetry of the cartilage it can produce clicking noise during swallowing.
In most cases the superior cornu of the thyroid cartilage projected posteriorly and medially.
This means the upper part of the thyroid cartilage is abnormally long causing this noise during swallowing.
This can be corrected surgically by a ENT surgeon.
Also GERD needs to be treated with high dose omeprazole 40 mg daily.
is surgery always indicated?
For further information on this clicking in the throat condition here is the link to the article:
YOu can show a pint out of this article to your specialist.
If you feel bother then only surgery is needed.
Otherwise, this is not a serious condition.
Thank you Dr Basu
