I was told about
a month ago that i had Gerd. I found out thinking i was having a heart attack at the age of 31 but it ended up being gerd. I feel so bless to have found this forum cause now i know i am not alone in this . This is what happens . I do feel like a have food stuck in my throat or like someone is chocking me . I get the feeling of tightness in my chest and sometime it is around my ribs. I get dizzy alot and just feel bad (sometimes like i have a cold ).
I have had the ekg test done , blood test, even a CT and all have came back fine . I dont have insurance but found a doctor to look at me and he gave me nexuim 40 mg . It helps but i get headaches from it . I have been on the nexuim for about 3 weeks now .. It seem to work great at first but now i am back to the same systoms but not as bad ........ YET....... . Being that i have no insurance i cant get light ran down my throat or really anything cause i dont have $2000 dollors to pay for it . The doctor has been trying me on diffrent samples to see what works best for me . I would say the thing that bothers me the most is the chocking feel of my throat and the chest tightness . I wake up thinking about it and go to bed thinking about it . Can anyone tell me what i can do to take some of the stress away . I really just want to feel normal again . I think the stress of being sick is doing more damage to me than the actual sickness
