Hi,
Thanks for the information.
You might be having something called Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). In GERD the contents of the stomach can go back into the esophagus and cause heart burn and other symptoms like choking sensation, felling of lump in throat etc. What you are having are not typical symptoms of GERD. But this is a relatively under diagnosed condition and can have some unusual symptoms.
Ideally, you need to be evaluated by a Gastroeneterologist and put on medicines to treat GERD. You might need antacids, medicines that reduce acid production in stomach (H-2 receptor inhibitors). medicines that block acid production and heal the esophagus (proton pump inhibitors). I would advise you to consult a Gastroenterologist to confirm the diagnosis and then go for the treatment. You would also need advise regarding your diet to reduce the symptoms.
