Thank you for the information,

The feeling of something in the throat or upper chest can have a few causes.

Those can be allergy, laryngitis or reflux of acid.

Reflux of acid can cause such symptoms.

As prilosec does not help, you can try antacid 2 hours after food.

You may be aware that zyrtec or benadryl can help in allergy.

Sometimes it can be related to anxiety, stress.

Try to relax and take adequate sleep.

If the symptoms persist, you should consult your doctor or an ENT specialist.

ENT doctor can take a few tests like a scope to look at those areas.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Regards.
