Since mid October I've experienced throat pain, primarily on the left side and just below my adams apple. Lately, in addition to the throat pain, I'm experiencing stomach naseau, and minor head ache. I'm also constantly clearing my throat.

I've been to an ENT, got scoped (3 times over 2 mos.), and nothing found. She recommended Prilosec, but I've seen no change.

What are reasonable next steps to figure out what is going on?

Thank you.
