I have been having problems with heartburn lately. But now I am experiencing a new symptom. It happens when I am breathing harder(when I exercise for instance) I get a pain at the bottom of my throat almost like I need to drink water because my throat is dry or something. My heartburn has never bothered me in my chest area. Its always at the base of my throat. Also, in the am when I wake up I can feel the burning sensation there too. And when I drink a hot liquid oh my it burns going down...So long story short I went to see my Dr. and he has prescribed a acid reflux medicine. Also, I am going to a stress test on the treadmill on Monday(May 6th) he wants to see if I get the pain again while on the treadmill. I have heard that this particular test is very hard and they work you like hell(to put it bluntly) So I am a bit worried....Has anyone else done this test and what was it like?
