Some people experience the feeling that's like a lump in the throat, and wonder if they may have Barrett's esophagus. Like with the following experience:
"Recently diagnosed with GERD. Had horrible heartburn and constant belching. On Nexium for about six weeks, taken twice daily. It has worked for the heartburn, if my diet is also careful. But belching continues and lump in throat / food stuck in throat is constant. I am alone with this? Could this symptom mean Barrett's or cancer? I had an endoscopy about 10 years ago for stomach pains. Only inflammation was found. This time the heartburn was extreme and this food-in-the-throat deal is fairly frightening."
