Hi everyone, I'm pretty new here, so I'm not exactly sure I'm posting in the right place for this. Try to bear with me. I've come across a couple of people, myself included, who experience a painful sensation in their throat and tongue when consuming carbonated beverages like soda. As much as I've searched, I've never been able to find out why this is. As a matter of sheer curiosity, is this anything I need to be concerned about gastrointestinal wise? Could it indicate something about my digestive system that I'm not aware of? Any advice would be great!View Thread
