Hello,

Since when do you have this lump in throat ?

Do you have heartburn / sour taste in your mouth / burning in your stomach ?

Have you had any tests ?

Regards,

Dr.Joshi

Hello,

My first impression would have been 'globus hystericus' that is a feeling of something being there in the food pipe, which is caused by Acid Reflux (heart burn) and should have been relieved by antacid medications like Pirlosec.

Kind Regards,

even though my throat is red!!
Expert:  Dr.Saurabh Joshi replied 7 years ago.
This can be a concurrent throat infection along with heartburn.

You need to try doing warm salt water gargles along with the antacids, that should help both.
