Cathy A, Or anyone who can help !
I hope you can help me. I am 46 years ols. about 1 1/2 years ago I had a funny sensation in my throat. A sensation like it was quickly closing, or fluttering, or swelling. The sensation lasted for a few seconds and then was gone. I then felt as through I could not breath, and cough. I was send for an upper Gi and it was determined I had mild reflux. 1st I was placed on Acephex, became alergic to it then place on Protonix, and remain on it to this day. A few months ago I started to get these symptoms again. I am under stress, my father is dying of cancer.
Now I am on toprol for High BP and the DR sent me for a scope, which was normal. Daily I am experiencing this Throat closing problem. When I get it I also begin to cough and my heart also flutters. I am just beside myself.
I am wonder if these are much like your symptoms. Did anything work for you?
Also, I think I have been misdignosed for a year, and am on meds I do not need.
Help !!! please anyone
