I've been having symptoms for the past few months that seem to be some sort of acid reflux/GERD and esophageal spasms. The main symptom is pressure in the back of my throat like something is stuck there, but it gets worse if I don't do anything to stop it. Chewing fennel seeds generally stops the symptoms, but they're not getting any better. The symptoms are mainly caused by sour things, garlic, and swallowing pills. I had these symptoms a few years ago and had to stop SSRIs because that seemed to be the main cause. I'd like to avoid doing this again because I've been having a lot of problems with depression over the past year and a half. I've stopped taking LDN (low dose naltrexone) because I read this can cause these symptoms. I was also taking serrapeptase (aka Serrazimes or Serratiopeptidase) which I've stopped because I've read that it can also cause stomach irritation. I'm taking DGL which does seem to provide temporary relief, but so far hasn't done much to prevent the symptoms.
