as long as i can remember, i have experienced a kind of burning sensation at the back of my throat that just came and went. i would like to say its acid reflux, but my doctor said that its happening too frequently to be AR. he also pointed out that he noticed my heart beating oddly heavily, and that it had pushed his stethoscope back while it was beating. does anybody know what could be wrong with me? he never actually provided me with any information, he just told me what was happening.

But I believe both are interrelated. Acid Reflux CAN come back over and over, but may be because of a more serious undiagnosed condition. Have a urine panel test for glucose and things like that, and maybe a thyroid panel. Good luck!
