lump in throat, digestion, refluxI have been dealing with digestion issues for some time it seems but lately I have had a very uncomfortable lump in my throat more toward the left and a bit higher than my adams apple. It doesn't feel like I can't swallow so much but I force belching to ease it.
It began with sever heartburn but the heartburn has lessened. It almost seems related to pain under the ear or maybe jaw or cervical alignment as it seems to lessen while I press on the top of my neck and I feel tenderness under my ear and at the very top of my jaw.
My muscles have been very tight in my back, neck and shoulders for some time as well due to stress.
I have had some anxiety about my health and direction in life since a relationship breakup a year and a half ago. I have fought a sense of hopelessness and lack of direction, as if I have lost my purpose. That relationship was very hopeful to me and involved a small child that isn't mine and that I don't get to see now.
I don't think it matters what I eat, I had tried a mostly raw diet for six months (80-20) and then did more cooked foods to see if digestion would improve. Now I eat mostly cooked vegetables, salads, legumes and fish.
Crowds and driving distances by myself make the anxiety worse.
Warmth is somewhat helpful. I put my hands on my throat, jaw and stomach and the warmth of my hand feels good.
I am trying reflux-away that is partly homeopathic
