Help!! I need to know if anyone with GERD has these symptoms. Don't think I get heartburn more just a feeling in my chest like something is coming up and a slight pain(acid..i presume). Haven't (knock wood) had any trouble swallowing food although sometimes pills cause some burning sensations.
Have this all day everyday...somedays better than others. Can't figure out if any food is causing bc I can eat the same thing 2 days in a row and won't have bad symptoms one day but the next day it is worse.
I can generally sleep @ night but notice when I wake up sometimes my esophagus feels like I starting a cold (if that makes sense).
Anyway, am on 20 mg of Losec which doesn't seem to work. This all started after developing h-pylori. Eradicated that (proven through endoscopy and breath test)...but these symptoms cont'd and have actually worsened.
I should also let you know that I was extremely anxious (fearing i was going to die...preparing everyone for the worse). Both my GP & Gastro doctor feel alot of it is anxiety related. Took anti-depressants (37.5 mg Effexor) and still I am symptoms.
I have to admit...I am totally obsessed by this but how can you not be.
Any advice would be appreciated.
