Hi guys
its been awahile since ive been on here - i hope everyone is dong ok  
i saw an endocrinologist - cause i cant eat anything anymore without getting food stuck in my throat which is worsened by horrible intense belching and chest burning after i eat anything - and constipation that doesnt cease !
the endo -- poked around my thyroid area and said he felt small nodules and suspects hashimotos disease - but I need the blood work up to confirm this
my question is - can thyroid problems aggravate or even create GERD issues?  
I feel like im really losing this battle in my digestive system -- im eating extremely healthy and small portions for a long while now and results are not coming along - i just seem to stay sick and its really bringing me down :(
im trying to avoid ppi again - cause i just think they mask the real issues and in the end cause more havoc - but i cant keep burning either.  thx!

sounds like you need a gastro Dr. Sounds to me like esophageal spasms not like anything thyroid can cause. Thyroid can cause some stomach problems but usually not like you describe. I know it can cause constipation. Try taking a Pepcid which will just reduce the acid not block it and see a gastro Doctor and see if they can try something like nitro for esophageal spasms.
