I have for the last few weeks pain in my neck, in the thyroid area but also both side of the neck, at the same time I get this feeling of something being in my throat, like crumbs. I had a gastroscopy for other reasons 5 weeks ago and nothing strange was found. I had in January the H.pylori bacteria, but I was treated and had no signs of it now with last scope. Strangely if I clear my throat then my throat feels raw, but then it goes away again. I also am extremely sore in the solar plexis area. Woke up a night or two ago with pain under my left breast, which went away when I changed my position. Where does on go with this? Seeing that I had a gastroscopy its useless going for another one. What do you suggest

Hallo Erina
You may have irritation of the esophagus due to acid reflux or even esophagus spasm. Try using an antiacid like Mucaine/Zantac for a while?
