I have acid reflux and have had t for many years. My primary care Dr has blamed my issues on anxiety and reflux. I have been tested and tested for both heart and gastrointestinal issues and come back clean every time. Reflux is definitely present, but shouldn't be causing these issues.
Back in March, I started having pain in my throat directly under my Adams apple. . It is not a strep throat type of pain.. Very strange.. Almost feels as if the movements of my throat muscle are the origin of the pain. I also have upper abdominal pain just under my sternum. I have occasional rapid heart beat, palpitations a couple times a day, my eyes feel strained a lot, insomnia at night and complete exhaustion during the day. I really have no issues with weight gaining of losing. I pretty much stay the same. I have developed some pretty annoying anxiety issues. For example if something is to frighten me, I react FAR more than I think it should. Heart pounding being shot at kind of freak out for things like braking abruptly because someone pulled out in front of me in traffic. I drive for a living, so this is something I have dealt with on a daily basis for years. It should not freak me out. In addition, I just get freaked out in situations that I just shouldn't. I enrolled my kids in school last week and about
lost my mind.. These are things that I have never done before the last few months..
The throat pain is unbearable at times and it hurt at least a little all the time. I feel like the inside of my throat is swollen and I have difficulty swallowing. I had thyroid blood tests a couple of months ago and they came back normal. I also had a CT of the throat at this time and it too was clear... I doubt seriously that this is my trouble, but I figured, why not ask people who live with these issues... I do have many symptoms of thyroid issues.. Anyone have any ideas of thoughts at all?
One more thing.... I do notice a little more hair loss in the shower than I think is normal. From both my beard and head... Maybe I am just digging for an answer.. I dunno, but had to mention it
