    hiccups and throat

    Hi,
    I was wondering if any of you have experienced hiccups or a feeling of something stuck in the throat? My 14 year old daughter keeps getting hiccups and she said it feels like there is something stuck in her throat. She says it is just a real annoying feeling, like she needs to burp but can't. Sorry if TMI! But it is really bothering her to the point she doesn't want to eat. We first thought it was indigestion. She takes prevacid daily.Thanks for your help!

    Hello, my daughter had something called eosinophilic esophagitis... She was younger and couldn't tell me what it felt like... But the gastroenterologist explained symptoms like that... It can even make you not want to eat???

    Air in the esophagus gets trapped next to the pharynx and larynx. Gastritis or GERD often is the cause. Reflux of stomach gas caught in the throat hurts because of the unnatural contractions in the throat that is trapping the gas, the gasís acidic nature and the pressure against surrounding structures in the throat. I get them frequently enough to appreciate how it really feels like a stuck up hiccup. I donít know why air in the esophagus gets trapped but it may have to do with peristalsis or a swallow wave. Peristalsis is triggered above the pharynx which causes a wave of constriction milking the swallowed food toward the stomach.

    In the short term if she can drink a thick liquid like half and half, or a milkshake this may help. Liquid Gaviscon diluted with 10% water may soothe her throat and pop the impasse in her throat. Consider a childrenís dose of Zantac on a regular basis for a couple weeks. See if that helps her at all. It could point at GERD.

    Addressing any GERD, she might have could eliminate the problem. If my GERD werenít managed, this would be a daily thing for me so getting it down to a couple incidents a month is acceptable. If this is GERD, lung infections could be coming from aspirated food so there are good reasons to visit or revisit this issue. Gastritis is common in CF but a contributor recently noted the chance of low stomach acid, a condition that looks a lot like hyperacidity or classic gastritis. Low stomach acid allows bacteria to ďsourĒ the food in the stomach producing a revolting cocktail that feels just like gastritis. A simple hydrogen breath test can determine if it is low stomach acid or not.

    My throat has been bothering me for several years but more so recently. I had fluoroscopic swallow tests done as far back as 2007 when it was determined my problem swallowing was Parkinsonís disease. Maybe not! I had a CT scan done recently of my neck and they found a Multi-Nodal Goiter (MNG). The odd difference between an MNG and a classic goiter is physical detection. All the illustrations of thyroid disease seem to include some bizarre lumps, bulging eyes and thick leathery skin.

    An MNG can look more like hyperactivity, anxiety or restlessness with no bulges in the neck to betray a problem. The MNG is distorting my esophagus to where I can eat potato soup but a French fry isnít going down my gullet. In any case I would be having a CT done of her neck to see if there is any mechanical obstruction like a growth or a deformed bronchial stem.

    Swallowing difficulty seems endemic in CF so be aggressive in your search for why,

    I think this is natural or if you dealing with the problem, you should contact the doctor, he can give you the wise help for this. I also read the comments by others and these might be helpful for you. Thumbs up with your work to write my assignment that would be wise experience.
