After almost a year of testing, the GI doc finally agreed that I do not have reflux even though I do have a hiatal hernia.
I am going back for another endoscopy and a possible biopsy for Eosinophilic Esophagitis. You can read about it here: http://www.medicinenet.com/eosinophilic_esophagitis/article.htm
To sum it up, no one can figure out my hoarseness, throat closing-up feeling. It literally feels as if ground up peanuts are stuck at the base of my tongue. Gross description but it pretty much sums it up.
Allergy tests negative.
Barium Swallow ok.
Manometry showed low LES pressure and spasms.
24 hr PH monitor showed no reflux.
ENT scope said I'm clear.
It's a mystery. GI doc said I was on too much medication so he halved my Aciphex. I was only taking it twice a day at his initial request.
Next endoscopy is 3/18.
Does anyone on here have EE?
