at Spire Hospital is an option.
here is good information for you
I am ready to pay affordable price still I want get sorted, what is going on with my throat.I live in Woking. South of London . Might you can help me.
could be from acid reflux
or from excessive anxiety which can cause a lump in your throat.
do you have excessive anxiety?
Might have, that all started when I returned mine holiday after two hours flight .
excessive anxiety can cause you to feel like you have a lump in your throat.
you might need to ask your doctor for treatment for your anxiety
to help decrease your anxiety which could help your symptoms.
Then I had chat with my mom on the phone, she has had a similar feeling, but I didn't know at all that time she has been in progress to wait result, what has been happening within 2012/2013, she has been complained about her throat and difficulty to swallow a food.
I am not sure why she is having these symptoms.
she should see her doctor and get an examination of her throat
but you have already seen your GP
and had endoscopy.
which have not showed problems, correct?
She had through different scan, x ray, finally computer tomography show up that she has stomachs tumour which was upperpart of stomach and in and around esophagus.
but you have had endoscopy which did not show tumor.
in Nov 2013 all results came through, and 9.02.14 she passed away.
I am sorry about your loss.
These illness was so quick, really I am been still shocked about her .Still I do not knowwhat wrong with me
well, you said that you have excessive anxiety since returning from your holiday.
I wouldn't say like that, because I wasn't awere about her conditions until 25.12.2014, because she never told none of relative s including me and brother.Everyone time she went to see her doctors by herself.We were always sitting behind the doors.
did your throat symptoms start after this?
But last two week my throat is more sensitive as before.
you could be having acid reflux
if you have been drinking alcohol or eating spicy foods or fatty foods, this can cause worse acid reflux.
In February I have in two days I hospital, had endocope. Nothing wrong.
Might is in my mind
yes, it could be from your anxiety.
excessive anxiety and worry can cause a lump sensation in your throat.
Only I was told in Hospital, not eat 30 min before bed time, then the bile can come into stomach.
yes, that is a good idea.
I don't drink almost at all.Only during last two months I was drinking I mouth ful cognac every morning before meal.
you need to stop the cognac.
drinking cognac on an empty stomach can cause bad stomach inflammation and acid reflux.
What you suggest me to do next?
stop drinking cognac in the morning.
talk to your doctor about medication to calm down stomach acid.
and see if that helps.
if you continue to have bad anxiety, you might need treatment for anxiety.
I have not drinking cognac more 3 weeks.And when I did it, I have drinking only 1.2 litre in 5 weeks period. To treat my throat, what was helpful bit
that is not a good idea to use alcohol to treat your throat.
you could still have stomach acid reflux.
have you tried any maalox or mylanta? these might help
also there are stronger stomach acid blockers like prilosec or zantac which can help.
you are welcome

thanks for using JustAnswer.com
do you see the ratings area below?
I don't know any of these medicine.
maalox and mylanta are over the counter liquid antacids which neutralize stomach acid.
these are safe to use several times a day to help calm down stomach acid
and are the first things to try to help calm down stomach acid.
Tums and rolaids also make similar liquid or tablet antacids to help neutralize stomach acid.
But my UK doctor find out that I got pos Helicobacter pylori.
I would try these first.
did your doctor treat you for your H Pyloir?
it takes 2 antibioics and 1 proton pump acid blocker to cure H Pylori in the stomach
Then she was given me klaricid,omeprazole and penicillin ( these cure has finished 10 days ago.
that is good.
that should help decrease acid reflux.
omeprazole is a strong stomach acid blocker.
did your throat symptoms get better over those 10 days and after that treatment?
No, after these treatment went worst.
then not from acid reflux.
was your anxiety worse recently?
Do you mean stress generally or about worries with these throat.I have had both last two weeks.
worry about the throat and stress can cause worse anxiety.
excessive anxiety can cause you to feel you have a lump in your throat.
what do you mean by fancy feeling?
allergies and post nasal drip can cause irritate your throat as well.
Feeling like something constrict,tigh, last week like bee has bite.sometimes, when I drinking hot drinks, throat is sensitive.
do you have any post nasal drip?
any runny nose?
any signs of allergies? like spring allergies?
Post nasal drip very often,especially in these wetter like now.
there you go.
the post nasal drip is irritating the throat.
you need allergy medication.
and a steroid nasal spray to help treat the allergies.
No allergic , but had nasal sinuses (runny nose was blocked)operations 1997 and 1994
bad chronic sinusitis.
have you tried steroid nasal sprays?
no, usually only tablets is good for me, no spray. I don't complain to much about runny nose, while it is not very bad, just little bit when I running or walking outside.
well this runny nose can definitely irritate the throat and cause swelling and inflammation in your throat.
Do I need to do computer tomography
I don't think so.
you can get one, but I bet it will be normal.
do you have any other questions?
Thanks so much of your answers, which were more accurate and fully filled by professional matter.
