I've posted on the GERD forum a few times bc that is what I feel my issues are...but my Gastro doc seems to think it's all anxiety based...that I've triggered something.
I will make my story as brief as possible. Last year I developed h-pylori. At the same time several people quite close in my life were diagnosed with cancer and I became obsessed with the fact that I was going to die. I basically could not eat properly for 6 months due to severe anxiety and throat and chest issues. I have had many, many tests for gastro stuff (endosocpy, manometry test, ct scan, ultra sound) and everything comes back ok.
I have been taking taking nexium (40mg) per day since May 2008 and still have weird feelings in my chest in throat (constantly...don't stop unless I'm asleep.
Does this sound like something that a severe case of anxiety could cause?
Any replies would be appreciated!!
