I am 34, but they still need to take my conditions seriously. Hope that'll last.
I was the epitome of health until a death happened and other things that caused me to not eat. Having been so healthy, I am far from a hypochondriac and a good doctor would know that I know my body and know that I am sick!!
I find your comment about knowing your body interesting. That was my argument exactly! I *knew* something was wrong and was very annoyed when the doctor made me feel as though I didn't know what I was talking about!
34 may be on the young side for a Zenker's. I just loved it (NOT!) when I read it's usually a condition in the elderly. All right, so I'm 63 -- but I don't consider that "elderly." I did later read something about Zenker's being found in people over 40 (more males than females, if I remember correctly). I never do seem to fit the mold.
I hope you are able to get to the bottom of this soon!
