This answer was rated:

i've had this thing that started back in beginning of march end of february where it feels like i've got something stuck in my throat and that my throat is closing up. Sometimes it feels like i have mucus stuck there and that i need to get it out. I thought it was some stomach related problems but i've been taking tablets for it and doesnt seem to go away, there are days where i dont feel anything but most days it's just this annoying/uncomfortable feeling in my throat
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, have you used this medication or anything similar before?
Customer: i havent used this particular one before but i have used nexium
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about this?
Customer: My local GP but not in person due to corona virus
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: nope

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
not necessarily i mean i get stressed every now and then about normal stuff but normal like everyone else
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
i took nexium for like a week

Thanks for the details

You should take Nexium for at least two weeks
If still no improvement then you should add a decongestant and anti-histamine
This can be an acid reflux or it can be a sinus problem
You should also try to make an appointment with an ENT specialist as well for detailed evaluation.
