Burning sensation in throat
« on: December 03, 2013, 01:22:30 PM »
I ate some chips last night and immediately they started causing me to have heartburn.  My chest and throat felt like they were on fire.  I drank water and took my antibiotic, doxycycline, because it was time to take it.  I didn't treat the heartburn.  I made the mistake of laying down after the heartburn started and taking the doxy. That was bad, so I propped up with pillows.  It finally went away after an hour or so. 

So, today I woke up and after a bit my throat felt like it was on fire acid was eating it.  My chest hasn't really burned.  It is mainly my throat or esophagus because I can feel it in my neck. 

Long story short I am on here because my hypochondria went into overdrive with heart attack fears.  I am not sure if acid did burn my esophagus or it's something else.  Any advice?

Sounds like acid reflux to me...especially since you were laying down.  No permanent damage, just some temporary discomfort.  I had something similar happen in what I now refer to as the "Korean Death Donut Incident" :  I was visiting my army hubby in South Korea and ate a vanilla glazed donut for I have eaten many vanilla donuts in my life, but this one was different.  For the next three days I had horrible heartburn and every time I burped it was a vurp (vomit-burp)and I tasted vomit tinged vanilla frosting; particularly gross when one has been eating kimchi!  You will be fine, just take some Tums and stick to a bland diet for the next few days.  Hang in there!
