    So these are all the sympotoms that i have had for the past about 3 months or longer.

    -Feels like something is in my throat (like mucus or flem)
    -when i eat i get full really fast
    -I have a very sensistive gag reflex so the feeling of something in my throat makes it uncomfortable at all times like i may throw up
    -I have a sore throat every morning (gets better later on in the day)
    - I feel like i have a stuffy nose (not running, feels like i cant breath fulling out of my nose and its blocked)
    - sometimes feels like something is in my eyes makes it hard to see (this may be because my vision is getting worse, but since i get motion sickness very easily it bothers me alot and when i have glasses on (only for distance) It bothers me because i can see through the sides of the frame where there are no glasses so it bugs me sees partly without prescription then part with and back and forth making my nauseous.
    -I have been to multiple eye dr regarding the feeling of something in my eyes and none of them could find anything in them so i guess could be dry eyes? not sure.

    Some backround stuff for me is i have minor eczema in my ear, i believe i sensitive to dairy (usually in the mornings). Get migraine headaches.
    - I have had a MRI/catscan of my brain and everything is fine with is as well.
    -went to a ENT dr and she gave me some meds for acid reflux, but still feel the same.
    -got a video of me swallowing and they said it looked fine.

    Wanted to see if anyone could help with some possibilities or suggestions.

    I had the same syptoms. They get worse when you get anxious or excited. I had gerd bad. Hiatal hernia and an esphogus without a restriction or "valve". I also had a sinus infection at the same time. Both can have similar symptoms. The feeling to constantly clear your throat. The ENT tried treating the sinus infection but the antibiotics seemed to not work so well because of the gerd. I had a Laproscopic procedure 2 weeks ago and I feel much better. No gerd and no meds. I am back on the antibiotics and the sinus infection seems to be leaving. It was a tough row to hoe! Antihistamines can provide some temporary relief.

    Yes when i get nervous or anxious it gets really bad, like when i go out or something or to dinner. Its soo uncomfortable. Not sure what i should do. I saw the ENT already say a GI and he put me on some meds, didnt do much, he said the next thing would be to get a video of down in my stomach and throat. Should i do that or would it just be a waste of time and money?

    Getting back to normal would be so awsome. I really dont remember whats its like to go out without worrying about anything.... sucks so bad.
