for the past week i've been having pains in the back of my throat, and it isn't my tonsils because i've had plenty trouble with them. I also have pain right under my rib cage, like something is stuck. I'm not vomiting though I feel alittle nauseous, I think its only because I feel like i'm about to choke. I cough regularly but that's probably because I smoke more than a train. I've had acid reflux for the past couple of years. and just to note i'm 18 Male White

i had similar symptoms which ended up being ulcer....that was diagnosis of general practitionaer.....did treatment and symptoms kept coming back....finally went to gastroenterologist(sp?) who did endoscopgy (painless) and found i had barret's esophagus...a precancerous condition which can be easily treated....my own father had this and died of esop. cancer because the barret's was diagnosed too late.....GO TO A DR. NOW!!!! this is not something to take lightly...it may be a simple ulcer....good luck

Just a follow up.. The pain went away.. I'm thinking my my acid reflux went out of wack because of being stressed out then. my mouth ended up sore for a week.. i'm going get to get it checked out as soon as I get some insurance.. I think your right about that barret's esophagus..
