Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having feeling that something is there in throat is called as globus sensation.That is persistent or intermittent sensation of feeling of lump or foreign body or something else stuck in throat.

Its most common causes are:gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD),abnormalities of the upper esophageal sphincter,stress,psychological or psychiatric disorders.

As you have history of gastritis,this gastric reflux is the most probable & most likely cause of your symptoms.

Upper endoscopy & barium tests will confirm the underlying cause.

To get relief ,following is recommended for you now:

· Take Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.

· Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly.

This will help you greatly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
